    Hoax. The richest man in the world is Bill Gates at $87.4 Billion.

    If he was a trillionaire, then why on his twitter feed is he trying to borrow 4 billion bitcoins for the effort, and why is he only offering $150 a share as of 2 hours ago, when the stock price is over $160 a share? Why is he also requesting to borrow $4.1 billion from Bill Gates to build a rival Gigafactory?

    Yep, I think that's the same guy. Delusional?

    Oh, and in his letter to the board of directors, he also claim to own $4b in bitcoin:

    4 BILLION Dollars ($4,000,000,000), payable by Pen Bancorp through Bitcoin transfer, at Closing;


    Since all Bitcoin holdings is public information, you'd think that someone would have notice a single party owning 2/3rd of the entire Bitcoin market cap...

    The 111'111 account was a huge deal and that was only $44m. (Ended up being MtGox I think).

    Crazy, crazy.

    This is almost as amusing as that guy who started a thread that he was able to secure 5 P90Ds at a 35% discount therefore Tesla is about to collapse or something.

    It's actually not delusion. It's screening.


    Have you ever wonder why spam is worded so badly that no reasonable person would respond to it?

    It's because they don't want reasonable people to respond. It's a waste of time for them since no reasonable person would buy whatever underlying 'product' the spam is trying to sell.


    Same thing here. Nobody with any kind of background in... well... common sense would listen to this guy. But that's not his target audience.

    Screening for what? For who? For what reason? Are you saying he's intelligent and looking for an army of cult followers?

    I did like his intent to buy 5,000 Model 3's for Uber Tesla Taxi Co. :wink:
