The CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company, has taken another humoristic stab at BTC maxis by asking how many are needed to change a light bulb. The wave of comments didn’t disappoint from names like Michael Saylor, Dan Held, Raoul Pal, and more.
Ever since the start of the year when Musk said he regretted not buying bitcoin years ago and later revealed that his EV company had actually purchased $1.5B in BTC, the billionaire has frequently been engaging with the community.
Most of the discussions used to be in a positive manner, but it all changed when Tesla disabled BTC payments citing environmental issues. When Musk started bashing the cryptocurrency for its high energy consumption levels, most Bitcoin maximalists changed their tunes as well.
However, it seems that Tesla’s CEO sees most of it from a humoristic point of view and the latest example, which came earlier today, supports this idea.
He reiterated a popular question on Twitter – ”How many Bitcoin maxis does it take to screw in a lightbulb?” Later on, his own response was also quite ironic.

Some popular BTC maximalists and other cryptocurrency commentators quickly offered their opinion on the matter. Michael Saylor, the CEO of MicroStrategy, was among the first who also caught the irony – “if you give us 10 minutes, maybe we can hash out the answer,” referring to how the Bitcoin network works.
Peter McCormack, the podcaster who recently interviewed the President of El Salvador on the country’s BTC adoption, took a stab at Musk, while Raoul Pal spoke about his views on what the BTC maxi tribe represents.
Interestingly, Dan Held, the Head of Growth at Kraken, responded with a reference towards Elon Musk’s favorite meme coin – Dogecoin.
