Elon Musk Reiterates Support For Crypto Self-Custody 

Electric car billionaire Elon Musk took a swipe at crypto exchanges following a Twitter altercation with Binance boss, Changpeng Zhao. The Tesla CEO advised doge holders to move their funds from centralized exchanges to have complete control over their digital assets.

More Support For Crypto Self-Custody

This is the second time Musk supports those in favor of having self-custody over the crypto funds. Earlier in the year, Musk tweeted that crypto holders must avoid any exchange that doesn’t allow them to fully control what they do with their funds. Musk tweeted a Chuck Norris meme about Mt. Gox (a crypto exchange that’s no longer in operation).

There has been increasing support for the self-custody of crypto funds in recent times, following numerous hacks and security breaches experienced by many crypto exchanges. But, some crypto investors opined that new crypto holders should still keep their funds with centralized exchanges because crypto self-custody is complex, and they might lose their funds. In October, when SHIB was massively bullish, Musk said people shouldn’t put all their investment hopes in digital currencies.
