Decentralized hacker group Anonymous posted a message to Elon Musk in a video in which members of the group called Tesla CEO "nothing more than another narcissistic rich guy desperate for attention," writes Bitcoin.com.
They shed light on many things people may not know about Musk, including how he allegedly treats his employees, harms the environment, where his fortune comes from, how Tesla actually makes money, and how he is. attempts to centralize and control Bitcoin mining.
Anonymous, a decentralized international movement of activists and hacktivists, posted a video on June 4 addressed to Tesla CEO Elon Musk. It is unknown if the people behind this video are members of the real-life hacktivist group Anonymous, known for cyberattacks against multiple governments since 2003.
The video begins with the message: “Greetings, citizens of the world. This is a message from Anonymous for Elon Musk. "
"Elon Musk is a rich daffodil in need of attention"
“Over the past few years, you have enjoyed one of the most favorable reputations among the billionaire class because you have fulfilled the desire of many of us to live in a world of electric vehicles and space exploration,” the group said. "But your carefully crafted public image is revealed, and people begin to see you as nothing more than another narcissistic rich guy desperate for attention."
“It seems that your quest to save the world has more to do with a superiority and salvation complex than with real concern for humanity,” they said.
“Employees, Children and the Local Environment Are Suffering”
Anonymous then stressed that Elon Musk's lack of concern for humanity "was evident for a long time to his employees, who for years faced unbearable conditions under his command."
The group referred to an Observer article entitled "Elon Musk, Tesla is pushing factory workers to the brink of rising profits." The article explains that "Tesla workers and workers' advocates say the company is risking the health and safety of its employees by relentlessly pursuing these impressive numbers."
In addition, Anonymous referred to another article in The Times titled "Blood Batteries Are Fueling Elon Musk's Fortune", stating:
“It's also obvious to the young children working in your overseas lithium mines, destroying the local environment. You have openly declared your readiness to stage coups in order to establish dictators in the places where your toxic products are mined. "
"You even prematurely crowned yourself Emperor of Mars, the place where you will send people to die," the group continued, pointing to an article titled "Elon Musk Declares Himself Emperor of Mars."
“Fans are oblivious to these issues because they are focused on the potential benefits your projects can bring to the world,” Anonymous suggested. “But you are not the only alternative, and the competition is getting more intense every day. There are many other space exploration and electric vehicle companies. You are simply the only CEO made iconic by posting and trolling the world on social media. "
"Tesla's main income is not cars"
Anonymous then talked about how Tesla makes money.
“A lot of people are now learning that the vast majority of Tesla's revenue isn't actually from car sales. This comes through government subsidies, the sale of carbon tax credits for your clean energy innovations, the group explained. “Technically, it’s not new to you, because you’re not actually the founder of Tesla. You just bought the company from two people much smarter than you. "
Anonymous mentioned Martin Eberhard and Mark Tarpenning. In an interview with CNBC, Tarpenning said Musk was an investor in the company.
“He was always supportive from the beginning, but he was not a founder. We started it, ”he confirmed.
“He actually did some amazing things ... I'm not sure why he said he was the founder, although he is not. I don't understand that, ”added Eberhard.
Referring to an article titled “Tesla: Bitcoin Sales and Green Credits Boost Profits,” Anonymous suspected that “Tesla also made more money from storing bitcoins in two months than it did in years of selling cars. It is also more than likely that this bitcoin was bought with the money of these government subsidies. Elon pretends to know nothing about energy use when Tesla's main income (government money) is at stake. "
Regarding bitcoin and Tesla's government revenue, Anonymous said, "It is now widely believed that you were forced to withdraw your company's participation in bitcoin in order to keep this green government money flowing into Tesla's coffers."
The group noted that "the energy use case for proof-of-work mining is a very subtle conversation, requiring a fairly complex understanding of how power grids work, how excess energy is wasted by energy companies and what cryptominers are aiming for."
“This is a conversation that you have been conducting for over a year and you know very well. But as soon as your main source of income was threatened, you pretended to be ignorant, trying to play from both sides, ”they emphasized.
"Attempt to Control Bitcoin Mining"
The video then talks about Elon Musk's attempt to centralize and control Bitcoin mining. On May 24, the Tesla CEO announced on Twitter that he had met with leading North American bitcoin miners. During a closed meeting hosted by Microstrategy CEO Michael Sailor, he said that the miners agreed to form a Bitcoin Mining Council.
However, Anonymous said, "[Ilona's] move to create a Bitcoin mining council was rightly seen as an attempt to centralize the industry and take control of it."
The group then referred to an article in Bitcoin News titled "Cryptocurrency Proponents Are Skeptical About Private Meetings Between Billionaires and Bitcoin Miners."
"Elon destroys lives"
Anonymous also accuses Elon Musk of destroying the lives of cryptocurrency holders with their memes and tweets, stating in the video:
“Reading the comments on your Twitter posts, it seems like the games you played with the cryptocurrency markets have ruined lives. Millions of retail investors have really relied on cryptocurrencies to improve their lives. "
“This is something you will never understand because you were born into the stolen wealth of a South African emerald mine and have no idea what the struggle is like for most of the world's workers,” the group said, citing an article titled “Family Elona Musk once owned an emerald mine in Zambia - here's a fascinating story of how they got it. "

"Of course they took a risk when they invested, and everyone knows to be prepared for volatility in cryptocurrency," Anonymous says, "but your tweets this week show a clear disregard for the average working person."
“As long as hardworking people have their dreams shattered by your public tantrums, you continue to mock them with memes from one of your million dollar mansions,” the group said.
The video ends with a message to Musk: “You may think you are the smartest person, but now you have met an equal opponent. We are Anonymous. We are legion. Wait for us". Here's the video:
