Changpeng Zhao, CEO the largest Bitcoin exchange responded to the recent claim of Elon Musk, who said that, he is owning only 0.25BTC.

Interesting to browse the comments of crypto enthusiasts including most influential figures such as ‘Anthony Pompliano of Morgan Creek Capital Management’.
On top of all, very recently, CZ, who hardly need any introduction is quietly made a ‘cunning offer’ to Musk. Perhaps the tweet is interestingly highlighted CZ’s offer to Musk. He says ‘I still don’t have much of a Tesla, let’s trade some’.
I still don’t have much of a Tesla, let’s trade some?

Smartly, CZ’s mark on trading ‘Tesla for Bitcoin’ is likely an attempt to encourage Musk to have much of Bitcoin (possible attempt, not something that CZ openly revealed). Following CZ’s comment, crypto enthusiasts shared their views, few of those quoted below;
Lol… Hope he gets to shake hands and seal this one!!! – @Ke_BitCoin
1 BTC is 1 Tesla soon- @ronbroek
Naaah, you will never be able to buy a @Tesla for $ 250 😄 – @rafschippers
Anthony Pompliano – Send Me Your BTC Address, I’ll Send More BTC
Although the podcast publicly released on Feb 19, 2019, the conversation on Elon’s comment of stating ‘Bitcoin a better currency than a piece of paper’ is crazily running the headlines. Additionally, CZ isn’t the only big profile in Industry commenting on Elon’s BTC holding, Morgan Creek’s Anthony Pompliano also sarcastically asked Elon to try out Lightning Network. He mockingly asked his Bitcoin address that he would send more BTC to him. He called Bitcoin ‘the future global reserve currency of the world’ and says;
Elon – send me a Lightning Network invoice or a Bitcoin wallet address.
I’ll send you more Bitcoin so you can see how much things have improved recently.
We have to get you using the future global reserve currency of the world.

So for now, we all can watch how ‘the known figure of tech’ responds to the ‘most influential figures of crypto industry’. It’s quite interesting – whether Musk will take it as the challenge or accept trade Offer and make crypto entry.
Or will there possibly be a ‘Tit for tat’?
