The billionaire tech expert emphasized the fact that he has never convinced anyone to purchase cryptocurrency, as against the lawsuit filed against him.
Elon Musk noted:
“I have never said that people should invest in crypto. In the case of Tesla, SpaceX, and myself… we all did buy some Bitcoin, but it’s a small percentage of our cash and cash assets…
“I also bought some Dogecoin, and Tesla accepts Dogecoin for some merchandise, and SpaceX will do the same.
“And I intend to personally support Dogecoin because I just know a lot of people who are not that wealthy who have encouraged me to buy and support Dogecoin; so, I’m responding to those people… Just people when I walk around the factory at SpaceX or Tesla, they’ve asked me to support Dogecoin; so I’m doing so.”
