As Forbes pointed out, however, it's not easy to verify whether the video was genuinely posted by Anonymous. The outlet noted the most popular Twitter Anonymous account, YourAnonNews has already denied being behind the video.When asked if they could confirm the video was published by them, the tweeted response was: "Again, all the best - but no," Forbes reported.
There's no doubt though that Musk is very vocal when it comes to the subject of cryptocurrencies. Over the last few months, he has tweeted to comment on various crypto tokens. On some occasions, their values have either plunged or soared following his tweets.Most recently, Musk signaled a potential split with bitcoin by posting a broken-heart emoji to Twitter, after which the cryptocurrency slid by as much as 8% on Friday. His tweet came three weeks after Tesla suspended bitcoin payments over the negative environmental impact of cryptocurrency mining.
The hacking group claimed that his "erratic" public behavior in relation to cryptocurrencies "show a clear disregard for the average working person."
The video targeting Musk gained more than a million views in 24 hours. It ended by saying: "You may think you are the smartest person in the room, but now you have met your match. We are Anonymous! We are legion. Expect us."Anonymous is a loosely affiliated group of hackers specializing in everything from data retrieval to network shutdowns.
It experienced renewed internet fame last year after a video calling out the Minneapolis Police Department went viral, as Insider reported.
