Elon Musk’s Connection To XRP?

December 20, 2021 7:52 pm

One of my favorite people on the planet is Elon Musk.

Endlessly fascinating, endless value to society, endless creativity!

In the crypto world, he’s well known for supporting DOGE coin, but it’s never totally made sense.

The smartest man on the planet is supporting a meme coin?

I want to take a moment and ask a question:ย  what if the Digital Asset Investor is right and “all the world’s a stage”?

What if Elon’s fling with DOGE and all the Mainstream Media attention to BTC and ETH is just to keep you distracted while the real deal was going down?

It’s not as crazy as it might sound, and the more you look behind the curtain the more dots seem to suddenly start connecting….

Let’s take a deeper look….

Did you know Elon seems to have a fascination with the letter “X”?

Many people may not know he purchased and founded X.com which later was rebranded into PayPal:

Then he moved on to space and there’s that letter again in SpaceX:

Oh and what about Tesla you ask?

Well they just so happen to have a “Model X”:

Ok, ok….now I understand one letter does not a connection make.

But it’s interesting and it’s only our starting point.

Then we move beyond companies to his kid, who he named what else but X (and some other letters I don’t quite know how to type on the keyboard):

This was hilarious:

Now let’s go back to PayPal…

Given his work at Tesla, SpaceX, The Boring Company, Neurolink and everything else, it’s easy to forget Elon got his start in the PAYMENTS industry (PayPal).

Don’t forget that.

Have to give credit to the Digital Asset Investor for being on this many months ago, and reminding us all of something called PayPal Galactic:

And this:

And this:

From Phys.org, talk of the first “intergalactic currency” started back in 2013 and was all about PayPal:

Earthbound financial transactions service PayPal launched a quest for an intergalactic currency, saying it is time to figure out what space travelers will use as cash.

“The time has now come for us to start planning for the future; a future where we aren’t just talking about global payments,” said PayPal president David Marcus. “We are expanding our vision off earth into space.”

PayPal Galactic Initiative will be formally unveiled Thursday at the SETI Institute campus in the Silicon Valley city of Mountain View, with attendees to include famed alien seeker Jill Tarter and former US astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

The initiative, headed by PayPal, aims to bring together parties with roles to play in the commercialization of space to explore a framework for a financial system that spans galaxies.

You know who else was in the “PayPal Mafia” back in the very early days?

Big time XRP investor Peter Thiel.

Here he is back in 1999:

Let’s recap: you have the richest man and likely smartest man on the planet with his roots in the payments industry, obsessed with the letter X, starts talking about “PayPal Galactic” but then that suddenly disappears as XRP is created, a man all about energy efficiency and saving the planet…..and then we take a hard left turn and he’s into DOG-COIN?

Really folks?

Now let’s add one more connection that is almost too irresistible….

Of all the people/companies in the world, who are the first two that come to mind that hate the SEC?

Bingo:

If you think this article is all pure speculation….it is, except it’s not just me.

Others are beginning to make the connection.

Like XRP Bush:

And XRP Daddy:

And Mason Versluis:

And of course DAI who has been on this story for a long time:

And now as people are connecting the dots and realizing that Elon hates the SEC as much as all the XRP holders who have been harmed by the SEC, calls are growing for Elon to get involved and blow the story wide open:

Like this rare non-satire Tweet from XRP the Standard Productions:

And Stefan Huber:

And the Spanish Billionaire:

And Mark:

And my man Crypto Bull:

If you want to go much deeper on this, the Digital Asset Investor put together an awesome video about a year ago doing a deep dive that is really worth your time.
