People who bet against Elon need to understand the mindset of those who believe in Musk like Chamath does.
The true believers will "never" sell their shares because "where else would they put their money into". Buy the dips.

A Chamath interview with a green Tesla chart behind him. Feel like I've seen this picture more than 5 times already. Shorts never learn.

Mr. Locke:
You can see that Chamath is really trying to hold back his gloating smirk with these idiots. He has been investing in Elon for a very long time and telling everyone that they are crazy for not doing so. Chamath was right...again.

He's not even 50.

Well it makes sense. He truly is, *crazy* smart.
I mean yeah, my man Elon Musk building and testing rockets to space, making electric cars and trucks, he's the future.
Chamath is cool, these other clowns that laughed at him for years, now they are finally waking up.

Extremely well communicated! Don't sell what works. Buy more when you can afford to.
Chamath was laughed at was it 5 or 6 years ago when he said amazon would be more than a trillion dollar company

And that being said, I’m buying more Tesla !
Love to see someone like Elon who cares about the world and people as a whole become the most successful person ever!!! This is a first and it's a great moment for humanity !
I wish chamath reminded this guy of their interview a couple years ago where he kept asking chamath dumb questions about Elon’s style or Elon’s tweets and chamath saying people just don’t get it.

Elon Musk is the hottest topic right now if you ask me,so tesla stocks should be up there as the hottest stocks too. maybe i am being sentimental because of the profits i just made from tesla stocks.
they laughed at this guy when he invested in tesla, aint laughing now..
Doctor Jack Has Your Back
Doctor Jack Has Your Back:
Chamath is someone that gets it. Hence his success. What’s more impressive is that even though Elon is the world’s richest person he has not cashed out any of his stock unless forced to. A billionaire that still sleeps in the factory floor to be closer to his company. How many CEOs do this?
But, look at what he spends. Almost nothing on himself. He's working towards the future the planet. Unlike all other mega wealthy person.

Not going to lie, I thought Tesla was overpriced a few months ago when I was buying stocks and now I’m just like “dammit!”
Elon musk is the only billionaire who deserves to be where he’s at right now

True North Treasure Seekers:
This is the most well articulated investment thesis for Tesla I’ve ever seen. I had this thought it’s going too high too fast. I’ll check back in 10 years and see how it did.
wow this is great!
Oh my gosh I never ever would’ve thought this would happen I remember reading of Tesla in 2014 when they were nearly nothing... Elon musk has created wealth faster than anyone i can think of in history, slightly faster than Jeff bezos, seriously mate...the last 10 years he’s pretty much made an average of $17 billion a year, or $50 million every single day. Think about that! 10 days go by and he’s made $500 million (every single time)
I hear the music and I'm dancing and riding forever. Well, until my time is up on earth.

He cancels it out with the electric cars? Hahaha I always thought the same thing. It’s very counterintuitive
D C:
1:45 when that TSLA ticker hit 800.00 was so neat to see.
Hahaha when Tesla was brought up, the guy in the top left casually drinks his water from the straw.. he's like I missed out on this bad
Chamath also grate businessmen, he told this befor. And also I remember what he told about bitcoin
