Elon Musk’s $21 Billion Twitter Cash Mystery

Bitcoin Jesus is back. After a year of social-media silence, Roger Ver -- who earned the moniker for his evangelical-like advocacy -- is the latest crypto pioneer to voice his support of Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter.   

Like many of the early cyberpunks and Libertarians who gravitated to Twitter while helping to popularize crypto, Ver said in an interview he’s optimistic Musk will end “censorship” on the social media platform. Coinbase Global Inc. Chief Executive Officer Brian Armstrong called Musk’s planned purchase “a great win for free speech.”
