Elon Musk has issued short shrift to Freewallet on Twitter after the cryptocurrency wallet provider attempted to use the Tesla CEO's tweet celebrating dogecoin to promote its services.
- Saying Freewallet's app "sucks," Musk stated Wednesday his belief that crypto users should avoid wallets that do not give them access to their private keys.
- Musk followed this up by tweeting an image of Chuck Norris saying the martial artist and actor "can withdraw bitcoins from Mt. Gox", a take on the popular "Chuck Norris Facts" meme
- The sentiment has given rise to the popular expression, "Not your keys, not your coins."
- According to other tweets, Musk seems to have tried Freewallet and initially had trouble accessing the app.
