ELON Musk shared a cryptic tweet containing a hidden message and fans think it’s proof that he’s the founder of Bitcoin.
The Tesla mogul shared images displaying the brands Samsung, Toshiba, Nakamichi, and Motorola.
The letters “SA, “TOSHI”, “NAKA” and “MOTO” are circled, spelling out the name Satoshi Nakamoto.
The pseudonym was used by the developers behind the cryptocurrency bitcoin.
Musk’s tweet sent Twitter users wild as they speculated online.
One said: “Elon is Satoshi.”

Another posted: “So this is what pumped BTC.”
And a third teased: “You know when you know.”
In 2009, Nakamoto published a white paper describing crypto titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-To-Peer Electronic Cash System".
It’s not known who Nakamoto is but it’s been suggested that computer scientists could be behind the identity.

Hal Finney, who died in 2014, received the first transaction on the Bitcoin blockchain from Nakamoto in January 2009.
Cryptographer Nick Szabo was rumored to be another name as he published a paper on “bit gold” – one of bitcoin’s precursors. He has since denied that he’s behind Nakamoto’s identity.
Musk, who’s the CEO of SpaceX, rubbished speculation after an intern in 2017 claimed he was Nakamoto.
The Tesla mogul tweeted at the time: “Not true. A friend sent me part of a BTC a few years, but I don’t know where it is.”
It comes as Musk is delaying the Mars-bound Starship rocket’s first orbitual test launch to prioritize cyber defense in Ukraine amid the war, according to a report by Futurism.
The billionaire said SpaceX is dedicating more resources to fighting Russian cyberattacks on Starlink satellites.
Musk added that overcoming signal jamming of Starlink internet satellites is also a priority for SpaceX.
Several Starlink terminals were sent to Ukraine after its Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov called out the billionaire for not helping during the invasion, which has disrupted the country's internet service.
Musk tweeted it would likely make Starlink a huge target for Russian cyberattackers.
He wrote: "Starlink is the only non-Russian communications system still working in some parts of Ukraine, so the probability of being targeted is high. Please use with caution.
"Turn on Starlink only when needed and place antenna away as far away from people as possible.
"Place light camouflage over the antenna to avoid visual detection."
Musk has expressed in the past that he is optimistic the first orbital launch for Starship would occur sometime in 2022, according to NBC.
He suggested that SpaceX could save the International Space Station if Russia decides to pull out.
