He shared a story about how a friend of his had a Bitcoin-themed cake made and fed him a piece of it in 2013.
“I think Bitcoin is a good thing,” he said. “I am a supporter of Bitcoin. I am late to the party but a supporter. I think Bitcoin is on the verge of getting broad acceptance by conventional finance people.”
Asie from his glowing words for Bitcoin, Musk held no punches back in welcoming Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev to the Clubhouse chat, calling him “Vlad The Stock Impaler.” Andreessen Horowitz is an investor in both Clubhouse and Robinhood and it would stand to reason that it wants to facilitate some redemption for Robinhood among its users following the company’s recent actions in the r/wallstreetbets saga.
Ultimately, many Bitcoiners saw this endorsement from Musk as a coup for BTC. It also served as another great example that everything is recorded and scrutinized, even chats on Clubhouse.
