In a surprise move, Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk has offered to give away 1 million DOGEs to anyone who can provide evidence of the existence of a mysterious emerald mine such as a certain vehicle. The media credited it to his family.
A designer of Dogecoin claimed that Elon Musk never owned an emerald mine, and offered a reward of 69,420 DOGEs to any media that can provide evidence of the existence of emeralds. Musk jumped in right after that and upped the ante, offering a whopping 1 million DOGE for the same proof.
Rumors of the Musk family owning emerald mines in Africa date back to 2014. At the time, Elon Musk apparently admitted in an interview with Forbes that his father owned such a mine in Zambia. However, the post has since been deleted and all that remains is the web archive page. It’s unclear if rumors that the Musk family owns the pearl mine are true, but it’s clear the billionaire wants to settle the matter once and for all.
Regardless of his motives, the generous bounty has certainly caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts and treasure hunters. Whether anyone will be able to provide the evidence Musk is looking for remains to be seen, but one thing is certain: the hunt for the mysterious emerald mine is reigniting.

On Twitter alone, Shibetoshi has more than 2.1 million followers, and considering his stature in the industry, Elon Musk’s registration could win even more followers for the tech guru.
