Hello y'all. What happens if you keep asking same question again and again? So we asked Papa Elon what he thinks of The Token Dispatch, again👇
No two days are similar. Dammit 🤦
You folks we trust, each day, everyday … show us some love on telegram 🤟
You can't keep Elon Musk out of action, out of news, out of your life.
A year ago Musk made a promise. No matter it was just a quirky exchange, and a matter of Billions of dollars.
Twitter's blue bird logo has been replaced with the popular "Doge" meme. He made a promise, and now he has delivered, as promised. Man of his words.
How does all this hold up with all them dreams Musk has for Twitter?
He has big plans. To turn Twitter into the X everything app and transform it into the biggest financial institution in the world.
How? Digital banking.
An idea he has hung on to for more than two decades. That's right, forget about those traditional banks, soon you'll be able to wire money to your buddies with just one click and earn some sweet interest while you're at it. Who needs a piggy bank when you've got Elon Musk and Twitter?
So now … you must ask.
What's happening here?
Elon Musk is being sued for $258 Billion over accusations that he ran a pyramid scheme to boost Dogecoin. This number is triple the decline in Dogecoin's market value in the 13 months leading up to the lawsuit.
This hasn't gone down too well. You see. This is also what you give out when, you are all of the things below:
One of the richest person in the world. If not the richest (keep flickering).

TTD Blockquote 🔊
Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic senator from Massachusetts
“You are buying air …with Bitcoin, there’s no underlying asset that backs it up, it’s simply a matter of belief.”
In a recent interview on "Meet the Press Reports" with NBC's Chuck Todd, Warren compared buying Bitcoin to "buying air." That's right, AIR!
But here's the kicker, even though she doesn't trust banks, Warren thinks it's time for us to move towards central bank digital currency (CBDC).

AI commentary will be making its debut at this year's Masters Golf tournament now. This isn't just any ordinary AI commentary - it's going to be informative and engaging.
IBM trained their AI to understand the language of golf, so it won't use technical jargon that would confuse casual fans. People can access this AI commentary through the official Masters app or Masters.com. Plus, IBM's AI models will analyse six years' worth of historical Masters performances ( approx. 120,000 golf shots in total) to cast the predictions.
Sorry to break it to you, Elon, Steve and co., but AI just keep getting better and better each day. What's next? AI-powered caddies?
TTD Think about it 🧠
Artificial Intelligence has the whole world waist deep in amazement. Driven by significant advancements in text-to-image generation, advanced language learning models, and platforms that make it possible to use such technologies in everyday life situations. The world might be divided in its views, but AI ain't going anywhere.
A new study has found that people in emerging countries are more likely to trust artificial intelligence (AI) than those in developed countries. With 82% of respondents claiming to have some knowledge about it, and many countries reporting high engagement with AI at work.
The study, conducted by the Center for the Governance of AI at the University of Oxford, surveyed over 154,000 people across 142 countries. It found that people in countries such as China, India, and Indonesia were more likely to trust AI than those in the US and Europe. The study also found that trust in AI was higher among younger people and those with higher levels of education.

An Ethereum validator has gone rogue and used their position to frontrun MEV (miner extractable value) bots, resulting in a profit of $25 million. MEV refers to the additional value that miners or validators can extract from a block by reordering transactions or including their own transactions. The validator in question used their knowledge of pending transactions to prioritise their own transactions and profit from the MEV. This incident highlights the potential risks and vulnerabilities in the Ethereum network and the need for better security measures.
