All hail our new techno-overlord Elon Musk! The Tesla founder and former chief executive has officially changed his job title to the ‘Technoking of Tesla’ – perhaps a nod to the new techno track he dropped on Twitter yesterday (March 15).
The billionaire announced that he’s selling the unnamed track as an NFT, or non-fungible token, along with a music video containing cryptic words like ‘Vanity Trophy’, ‘HODL’, and ‘Computers Never Sleep’. His partner Grimes sold her artwork as a NFT for $6 million earlier this month.
Not only has Musk crowned himself the king of his electric car kingdom, but he’s rebranded Tesla CFO Zach Kirkhorn’s position as the ‘Master of Coin’ too. The new title is presumably a reference to the company’s $1.5bn (£1.1bn) purchase of Bitcoin this year, though this is speculation.
“Effective as of March 15, 2021, the titles of Elon Musk and Zach Kirkhorn have changed to Technoking of Tesla and Master of Coin, respectively,” the electric car company said in a new regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The new song isn’t Musk’s first rodeo. Last year, he released an EDM track, “Don’t Doubt ur Vibe” on his very own record label, Emo G Records (lol). He’s also currently developing a chip that streams music directly into your brain. We’ll leave you to join the dots.
