Who made RatCoin, the latest cryptocurrency to hit the market? As crypto grows in popularity across social media and beyond, more and more people want to know where to buy RatCoin and whether Elon Musk is behind it.

What is RatCoin and where can you buy it?

RatCoin is a new digital currency which, like other cryptocurrencies, uses decentralised technology to manage and record transactions.

You may have heard of Bitcoin, which first launched in 2009. Since then, more cryptocurrencies have been created as the market has grown over the years.

On its official website, it states people can purchase and trade on Freak Exchange, Bololex and Stake Center.

Who made RatCoin?

Who actually made RatCoin is not stated on the cryptocurrency’s official site and therefore the owner not currently known.

However, some sources have linked the crypto coin with Elon Musk. And Twitter being Twitter, it didn’t take long for a debate to arise on the Tesla CEO’s connection to RatCoin.

In the meantime however, it has been confirmed that Musk is not responsible for RatCoin nor is he associated with the currency in any way.

The final word in this debate came from the cryptocurrency’s official Twitter account, where it was confirmed the Tesla CEO was not the one who made RatCoin.

However, some Twitter users may have linked Musk to RatCoin because of his previous tweets endorsing a different cryptocurrency, Dogecoin.

Back in February, he shared a meme featuring his face pasted alongside the Dogecoin symbol in a recreation of a popular scene from the Lion King.
