Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently made a statement on his Twitter page that his piggy bank has a very modest stock of cryptocurrency – only 0.25 BTC, which at the time of writing was $2,544.77. Elon also admitted that even this quarter of the coin was given to him by one of his friends and he does not own any other currencies.
Musk had to share this fact due to the increased incidence of fraud using his name. Attackers pretend to be such famous personalities as Donald Trump, or Elon Musk in order to get hold of cryptocurrency.
Not sure. I let @jack know, but it’s still going. I literally own zero cryptocurrency, apart from .25 BTC that a friend sent me many years ago.

Elon also said that although he warned the head of Twitter Jack Dorsey, after which several accounts were banned, the problem remains in place even today, as new accounts are constantly being created.
Returning to the question of Musk’s cryptocurrency capital, one can note in his message that he does not even know where his quarter of the BTC is.
Not true. A friend sent me part of a BTC a few years, but I don’t know where it is.
