Musk renames himself Technoking or Tesla
In addition to being CEO, Elon Musk is now also officially called Technoking or Tesla.
The co-founder of the American electric car maker is never shy about a stunt. Elon Musk now carries the official titles of chief executive officer (CEO) and Technoking or Tesla. This is evident from a report by Tesla to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the regulator of the American stock exchanges. In addition to the CFO position, financial director Zach Kirkhorn will be awarded the title of Master of Coin. Official job changes of directors must be reported to the SEC.
Tesla does not provide more information about the how and why of the new titles. The product design, engineering and manufacturing departments fall directly under Musk.
The title Master of Coin may refer to the automaker’s recent investment of $ 1.5 billion in the cryptocurrency bitcoin. Tesla also has plans to partly accept the digital currency as a means of payment for those who buy a Tesla. In several Twitter messages, Musk also expressed his support for the crypto coin Dogecoin
