Elon Musk, X.com and Mystery

E

Elon Musk, the one entrepreneur who stands out. Musk keeps surprising us all the time with his innovative and universe-denting ideas. Well, he came up with an interesting….Umm…I don’t know what to call it. Figure it out for yourself!

Musk recently tweeted a link to his website x.com, “x.com/x”. This garnered immediate attention because of his history with x.com. x.com was owned by him and it was this website that eventually became PayPal. The money obtained from this sale helped Musk build Tesla and SpaceX. Later, he acquired the domain, from PayPal. He said that the domain had, “great sentimental value” for him.

What’s interesting is that the link leads to an insecure web page with just “y” written on top-left corner of it. If you open “x.com” what appears is a similar insecure web page with “x” written on it. Now, what does all of this mean? Do tell us, when you figure it out!
