I don’t understand bitcoin. Please explain it to me.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) May 15, 2020

Then the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX joined in the conversation ,
“Pretty much, although massive currency issuance by govt central banks is making Bitcoin Internet money look solid by comparison,” he wrote on Twitter.
