Elon Musk has been named Time’s Person of the Year, making him the most influential person in the world at the moment.
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has been named the Person of the Year by Times Magazine. This latest development makes him the most influential person in the world. Musk is known within the tech world and is also making waves in other areas of the global economy.
Elon Musk is currently the richest person in the world after surpassing Amazon’s Jeff Bezos earlier this year. He has spearheaded Tesla into becoming a trillion-dollar company, with the electric vehicle manufacturer setting the trend while others follow.
His other venture, SpaceX, has made it easier and cheaper to travel to space. The company has signed numerous agreements with NASA, beating competitors such as Bezos’ Blue Origin. Musk has also made a name for himself in the cryptocurrency world.
Elon Musk has become one of the most influential people in the cryptocurrency space. He is an avid supporter of cryptocurrencies, especially Dogecoin. His tweets over the past few months have contributed to Dogecoin’s massive price surge earlier this year.
He also came out to bash Bitcoin for the high energy usage in mining the cryptocurrency. However, he remains one of the most influential people in the cryptocurrency space. The Time Magazine described him as;
“If Tesla delivers on its pledges, it has the potential to strike a major blow against global warming. The man from the future where technology makes all things possible is a throwback to our glorious industrial past before America stagnated and stopped producing anything but rules, restrictions, limits, obstacles and Facebook.”
Many have described Musk as a hubristic supervillain, lumped in with the tech bros and space playboys, for whom money is scorekeeping and rockets are the ultimate toys. However, Times described him as a manufacturing magnate, moving metal and not bytes. At the moment, Musk is one of the most influential people in the world.
