Tesla CEO is known for his market-moving tweets on crypto and is believed to be behind some of the price swings of even the world’s largest crypto by market volume, Bitcoin. In a recent interview, the tech billionaire shared his views on Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and his guess on who the BTC creator, Satoshi Nakamoto might be.

In May, Elon Musk announced Tesla’s decision to stop due to concerns over crypto mining’s impact on the environment. In a recent interview, the billionaire also shared some technical issues that are preventing BTC’s use as currency.

“There is a fundamental issue with Bitcoin in its current form in that the transaction volume is very limited,” Musk told Lex Fridman in an interview. “The latency for a properly confirmed transaction is too long, much longer than you’d like. It’s actually not great from a transaction volume standpoint or latency standpoint.”

However, Musk also acknowledged Bitcoin’s function as a store of value. “It is perhaps useful as to solve an aspect of the money database problem - which is the store of wealth or an accounting of relative obligations - but it is not useful as a day-to-day currency,” the billionaire explained.

Meanwhile, Musk noted that Dogecoin has an advantage over Bitcoin in terms of transaction volume. “Part of the reason why I think there is some merit to dogecoin, even though it was obviously created as a joke, is that it actually does have a much higher transaction volume capability than Bitcoin,” he said.

Another advantage of using Dogecoin is its lower transaction cost compared to Bitcoin. “The cost of doing a transaction, the dogecoin fees are very low,” the Tesla CEO said. “Right now, if you want to do a Bitcoin transaction, the price of doing that transaction is very high, so you could not use it effectively for most things, and nor could it even scale to a high volume.”

Musk also gave his speculation as to the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. “The evolution of ideas is pretty clear for that, and it seems as though Nick Szabo is probably more than anyone else responsible for the evolution of those ideas,” he said.

I WAS ACTUALLY FOOLED AND SCAMMED ( $753,000 ) by someone I trusted with my funds through a transaction we did and I feel so disappointed and hurt knowing that someone can steal from you without remorse after trusting them, so I started searching for help legally to recover my stolen funds and came across a lot of Testimonials about WIZARD GARRY, an agent who helps in recovery lost funds, which I can tell has helped so many people who had contacted him regarding such issues and without a questionable doubt their funds was returned back to their wallet in a very short space of time, it took the expert 48hours to help me recover my funds and the best part of it all was that the scammers was actually located and arrested by local authorities in his region which was very relieving. Hope this helps as many people who have lost their hard earn money to scammers out of trust, you can reach him through the link below for help to recover your scammed funds and thank me later.

HAVE YOU BEEN SCAMMED OF YOUR COINS AND WANTS TO GET IT RECOVERED BACK???

I invested a total of$95,000.00USD worth of Bitcoin with an online company who does trading and was guaranteed a payout of 25% a week. They ended up shutting down their company website but their website was still running. So I could still see my dashboard at that time and instead of paying weekly they ended up compounding my money. It ended up compounding to$179, 000USD so I requested for a withdrawal which was declined before they shutdown their website, I complained to my colleague at work who directed me about this recovery expert, Mr. Morris Ray, that helped him, I contacted him immediately, what surprised me most, was that I recovered my money that same week. You can contact him on his email at MorrisGray830 @ Gmail . com and on WhatsApp: + 1 (607) 698-0239 and he will assist you on the steps to recover your invested funds.
Just trying to help those who where scammed just the way I was too.

BITCOIN RECOVERY IS REAL!!! ( MorrisGray830 At gmail Dot Com, is the man for the job )
This man is dedicated to his work and you can trust him more than yourself. I contacted him a year and a half Ago and he didn't succeed. when i got ripped of $491,000 worth of bitcoins by scammers, I tried several recovery programs with no success too. I kept on. And now after so much time Mr Morris Gray contacted me with a success, and the reward he took was small because obviously he is doing this because he wants to help idiots like me who fell for crypto scam, and love his job. Of course he could have taken all the coins and not tell me , I was not syncing this wallet for a year, but he didn't.
He is the MAN guys , He is! If you have been a victim of crypto scam before you can trust Morris Gray 10000000%. I thought there were no such good genuine guys anymore on earth, but Mr Morris Gray brought my trust to humanity again. GOD bless you sir...you can reach him via ( MORRIS GRAY 830 at Gmaill dot com ) or Whatsapp +1 (607)698-0239..

Hello, for two years I had $55,000 in debt, including $23,170 in credit card debt. My credit score was nothing to write home about. I managed to get most of my debt removed in bankruptcy and i was left with $9,000 car loan and $23,000 in student loans. Determined not to repeat my mistakes again I met Hacknet the credit specialist through a credit blog. He helped me clear all my debt and every negative item and also increased my score to an excellent score. I’m recommending Hacknet Credit Specialist for any person in need of credit repairs. Contact him through [email protected]/ (646) 450 2754.
