Elon Musk’s mysterious voice note on the X platform leaves crypto enthusiasts speculating about XRP’s role in a potential Payment Plans. Will Musk choose XRP as the preferred cryptocurrency for his platform?
Elon Musk’s Cryptocurrency Payment Plans
In a recent X-platform revelation, Max Walker-Williams, formerly known as Twitter, shared a cryptic voice note from someone who sounded remarkably like Elon Musk, the CEO of the platform. The note hinted at Musk’s intentions to introduce a payment system with cryptographic rails on X, creating a buzz among crypto enthusiasts.
DOGE and Bitcoin: Not the Chosen Ones
The intriguing part of the voice note was the absence of specific details about which cryptocurrency X would adopt. However, the note made it clear that DOGE and Bitcoin, in their current state, might not fit the bill. DOGE was deemed unprepared for such an implementation, while Bitcoin was criticized for its inability to scale effectively, with a dismissive mention of the Bitcoin Lightning Network.
XRP Emerges as a Potential Contender
Interestingly, the voice note suggested that XRP might be the leading solution for X’s payment system. This optimistic view on XRP indirectly praised it as a ready-payment solution. The mention of XRP led to speculation and excitement within the XRP community.
XRP on X: A Possible Collaboration?
A user named XRPamici raised an intriguing prospect in response to the voice note. They considered the possibility of branding it as “XRP on X,” highlighting the synergy between the two San Francisco-based companies with legal clarity. Moreover, the playful connection between X and Elon Musk’s fondness for the letter “X” added to the speculation.
However, doubts lingered regarding the authenticity of this information, as it failed to generate substantial discussion in the XRP community. Many respondents dismissed the voice note as a fake, with some suggesting that it was from a Musk impersonator on the X-platform.
The Reality Check
In subsequent comments, it became evident that Musk’s mysterious voice note was not to be taken at face value. Several respondents pointed out that it was a fabrication, and no significant discussions on such a development had taken place in the XRP community. Notably, the voice note’s date was nearly a week old, and it had not influenced XRP’s price significantly, despite Musk’s track record of affecting the crypto market with his statements.
At the time of writing, XRP was trading at $0.6232, experiencing a steady rally that had propelled the altcoin’s value by 32% since October 19.
