This is not the first time that Musk has supported the “not your keys, not your crypto” crowd. In February, he tweeted that any cryptocurrency wallet that doesn’t allow users to control their funds should be “avoided at all cost.”Back then, Musk also posted a Chuck Norris meme about Mt. Gox, the now-defunct cryptocurrency exchange that lost 850,000 BTC in the devastating 2014 hack.

Crypto holders are typically discouraged from holding their crypto on exchanges due to possible hacks or other incidents. However, there are also those who believe that newbies shouldn’t self-custody their crypto since the process is too cumbersome and may result in the loss of funds.Source
