On August 5th, Elon Musk, addressing the crypto community, clarified that there are no plans for the social media giant 'X' (previously known as Twitter) to roll out its own cryptocurrency. This statement was in response to a post highlighting scam tokens, such as $X and $TWITTER, which purported to have affiliations with the renowned social platform.
