Elon Musk submits bid for Twitter

The internet continues to talk about the imminent takeover, which could see Musk assume affairs at the top of the company. The billionaire, who filed with the securities and exchange commission, sent a copy of the filing to Twitter. According to the transaction of the impending purchase, Musk wants to purchase the remaining shares at the company at a premium of $54 per share. Notably, the billionaire owns a 10% stake in the company.

Earlier, there was news that he would join the company’s board of executives, a move that he rejected before it was finalized.

The FTX CEO also said that the platform could choose to monetize tweets and its interface. He mentioned that users should be charged about $0.01 per tweet on the platform. Concerning using its interface for monetization, Bankman Fried talked about payments for ads and sponsorships. However, one of the few exciting features he advised the platform to take on is the ability for users to use blockchain to create their interface.

The FTX CEO mentioned that anybody could build their interface since everything would be on the chain. He also claimed that hosting tweets on layer one could help networks work on their scalability. This means that these networks would be scaling about one million transactions every second, seeing as likes and retweets will be flowing in the numbers on the chain. Although he didn’t specify what the features will do to their revenue, the FTX CEO assures that this will help centralization.
