Cardano’s founder, Charles Hoskinson, invited the richest man in the world, Elon Musk, to develop a decentralized social platform together. Charles wrote a Twitter post in which he said he was ready to start working together if Twitter’s heads rejected the offer to buy.
@elonmusk Elon if Twitter rejects your offer, then hit me up. Happy to build a decentralized one

Recently, Elon created a poll among his subscribers about whether to create a decentralized social media platform. Most of Musk’s fans voted positively, and there were many requests to add support for DOGE cryptocurrency for tips. Perhaps Hoskinson’s desire for co-branding stems from his desire to add his cryptocurrency ADA to the list of payment options.
Elon Musk plans to buy Twitter
Elon Musk offered to buy Twitter for $54.2 a share, according to SEC documents. The billionaire called the offer “the best and final.” In a statement, Elon noted;
I am offering to buy 100% of Twitter for $54.20 per share in cash, a 54% premium over the day before I began investing in Twitter and a 38% premium over the day before my investment was publicly announced.
My offer is my best and final offer and if it is not accepted, I would need to reconsider my position as a shareholder. –
According to CNBC, Twitter issued 800.64 million shares – the value of the deal, if approved, would exceed $43 billion. Musk hired investment bank Morgan Stanley as a financial advisor for the takeover.
Justin Sun decided to outbid Musk
Tron founder Justin Sun said he is ready to buy Twitter for $60 a share.
“I believe @Twitter is far from unleashing its full potential, thus I am offering $60 per share to take the platform private. But we fully support the reform initiatives of @elonmusk and would love to see Twitter becoming crypto-native and Web3 friendly.” – Justin said in a Twitter post.
