Elon Musk Quickly Reacts on ‘You are Not Satoshi’ Challenge – Here’s His Response

While the ongoing drama of whether Craig Wright is real Satoshi Nakamoto or not took a new turn, crypto community strongly urged Elon Musk that ‘he is not Satoshi’ and sarcastically asked him to sue for the challenge. As a response, Tesla CEO quickly adds a note, stating ‘cryptocurrency is my safe word’.

It’s pretty cool that Elon Musk earlier had shared his bullish view on cryptocurrency even though he himself owned only 0.025 BTC. Rewinding the history, Elon Musk had recently involved in ‘Dogecoin’s upcoming CEO poll’ and apparently lead over the other individual mentioned in the poll – which lets him update his Twitter bio.
Consequently, the moment Elon Musk became CEO and then former CEO of Dogecoin within a couple of hours, it had created a huge buzz in the market – moreover, few believe that it had influenced the value of DOGE during that particular period of time.
But this time, Musk responded to a question that was basically connected to Bitcoin SV’s head ‘Craig Wright’ who is claiming himself as ‘Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto’. Wright further urges people to accept his claim and also said that he is filing suit against those who don’t agree and uses hashtag #CraigWritghtIsAFraud. This hashtag along with #DelistBSV has eventfully gone viral on Twitter. More specifically, he threatens Twitter user anonymous account @Hodlonaut, which is deleted from Twitter at the time of writing.
Coming back to Elon Musk, a Twitter account tagged Elon Musk in his tweet that states he didn’t get sued, even he deny Wright’s Satoshi identity– very quickly, he addressed Elon Musk and tweeted yet another post that comes as an open challenge to Elon Musk. Nevertheless, it mentioned that ‘you are not satoshi haha sue me, bitch. Within less than 30 minutes, Elon Musk responded a short note;
Cryptocurrency is my safe word
What do you think readers? Who is the real Satoshi? Let us know your thoughts.

Top Trending Cryptocurrency News of the Week: Ethereum’s Constantinople, Elon Musk, Square App and Nasdaq Among Major Newsmakers

Key highlights
 

Crypto Indices on Nasdaq goes live
Bitcoin contributes Big to Square’s Revenues
Ethereum’s Constantinople and St. Petersburg upgrades go live smoothly
Indian Apex Court gives government 4 weeks to bring in policy
Musk says Bitcoin not good for Tesla

 
 
 
Crypto Indices on Nasdaq goes live
Well after a wait of around 2 weeks since the announcement Nasdaq is gone live and is providing real-time BTC and ETH index level information on its Global Index Data Service (GIDS), which already houses more than 4,000 other indexes. BNC Liquid Index or BLX, as it is called, provides the index that takes into account the prices of Bitcoin and trading data from across leading crypto exchanges which include Bitfinex, Bitstamp, Coinbase Pro, Kraken, Gemini and itBit. The Ethereum index ELX is calculated using similar methods.
Bitcoin contributes Big to Square’s Revenues
Square, the company behind the Cash payment App, recently filed its annual earning report for 2018 and according to the said financial report, the company earned USD 464 million of the total revenues in Q4 which in percentage terms is a 64% hike over last year. While the overall growth has been slow for the company compared to street expectation, the company continued to grow its bitcoin purchases. The company realized $37 million, $43 million, and $52 million in bitcoin sales in Q1, Q2, and Q3, respectively. Square CEO Jack Dorsey has long been a public advocate of Bitcoin and has even hinted to Lightning Network transactions entering Square Cash soon.
Ethereum’s Constantinople and St. Petersburg upgrades go live smoothly
After so much of delay and struggle Ethereum fork has undergone smoothly this week. As anticipated, Ethereum’s Constantinople and St. Petersburg upgrades went live at Ethereum ETH,  block 7,280,000. While the upgrade of Constantinople will implement 4 Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs), but cryptocurrency speculators are probably most interested in EIP 1234, which delays Ethereum’s “difficulty bomb” and cuts the Ethereum block reward from 3 to 2 ETH to compensate for this change. The lesser spoken St. Petersburg upgrade fixes issues that were created on Ethereum testnets such as Ropsten when Constantinople was originally deployed on them.
Indian Apex Court gives government 4 weeks to bring in policy
India, one of the biggest global markets for payments and cryptocurrencies, is currently fighting out the legal battle for to legalize in its Apex court. After a wait for a few months the, apex court of the country has given a 4-week deadline to the central government of the country to bring a cryptocurrency policy in 4 weeks. The next hearing of this case is 27th March is expected to be a date when the court might announce its judgment.
Musk says Bitcoin not good for Tesla
Tesla CEO Elon Musk who owns 0.25 Bitcoin has clarified that the US-based electric car making company will not get involved in cryptocurrency. In an ARK Invest’s podcast, Musk told Cathie Wood, “Bitcoin’s structure is brilliant but I don’t think it would be a good use of Tesla’s resources to get involved in crypto.” While Musk agreed that crypto is a far better way of money transactions than the usual paper way, “Bitcoin is very energy intensive,” he said.

CZ Again Sarcastic on Musk’s Tesla – Let’s Put Bitcoin on Mars As First Currency

Uhhh!! Binance’s CZ is again calling out Tesla’s viewpoint on Bitcoin – and this time, he sarcastically asked to put bitcoin on Mars as the first currency.
While quoting Elon Musk’s tweet where he shared a video that represents ‘Earth floats gently in zero gravity’, CZ says ‘Let’s put Tesla on hold for a bit, Let’s put bitcoin on Mars’. In his words;

alright, let's put Tesla on hold for a bit, I don't drive anyway. Let's put bitcoin on Mars, as the first currency! https://t.co/EPyckaa9F2
— CZ Binance (@cz_binance) March 2, 2019

However, Musk is not immediately reached out to comment (at the time of reporting) but the crypto enthusiasts on Twitter is all whole enjoying the sarcastic comment of CZ. One such Twitter user responds;
Imagine buying something with $BTC on #MARS! Can we make this happen?  @elonmusk
As reported earlier, Elon Musk recently talked ‘optimistic about bitcoin’ and since that time ‘his name across crypto space is quite often appeared. Nevertheless, this is not the first time CZ began this type of sarcastic conversation to Musk, earlier as coingape reported ‘he offered Bitcoin for Tesla in a response to Musk’s comment – that says, he just owned 0.25 bitcoins.

I still don’t have much of a Tesla, let’s trade some?
— CZ Binance (@cz_binance) February 21, 2019

To note, Bitcoin at the moment is declining with 0.41 percent over the past 24 hours – and trading at the value $3853.03. Consequently, the average trading volume of BTC as per the data from coinmarketcap counts $67,684,647,556.
Worth to mention that Elon Musk didn’t respond to CZ’s view for his last tweet as well. Moreover, CZ himself is not certainly in need to buy Tesla Car – in fact, as a response to one crypto enthusiast, CZ states that ‘he is waiting for a Tesla coin’.

lol, I really don't have a need to own a car. Waiting for a Telsa coin so that we can use it to pay for timeshared cars in every continent, maybe plus Mars, with AI drivers, of course.
— CZ Binance (@cz_binance) February 21, 2019
