Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and Social Capital founder Chamath Palihapitiya are paying attention to Bitcoin’s epic surge above $41,000.
Musk, who’s known to be on the fence about the leading cryptocurrency, replies to a tweet by Bitcoin Billionaires author Ben Mezrich, saying he will never again turn down the chance to be paid in BTC.

In December, Musk caught the attention of the cryptoverse after tweeting a provocative meme about the strength required to remain productive while avoiding Bitcoin. On the same day, the richest man on the planet said that “Bitcoin is almost as bs as fiat money.”
As for Palihapitiya, he says he has plans to buy a global investment bank should Bitcoin continue its parabolic ascent.
“When BTC hits $100,000, I’m going to buy Goldman Sachs and rename it Chamathman Sachs.”
Speaking in a recent interview with CNBC, Palihapitiya says Bitcoin is en route to grow 5x as people realize that the digital asset can serve as insurance against political and economic uncertainty.
The Bitcoin bull and billionaire also says he is looking to buy the Hamptons with plans to radically transform New York’s summer destination for the wealthy as soon as BTC hits his price target.Don't Miss a Beat – Subscribe to get crypto email alerts delivered directly to your inbox
