These criteria highlight the importance of delivering a seamless and high-quality user experience during the event or presentation.

Elon Musk Sheds Light on Future Plans With X
In the latter part of the stream, Musk took questions from his viewers and offered additional insights into the goals and objectives of Project X.

Putting a more realistic approach forward, Musk said that “specialist apps” will still have an upper hand and will function better than X. Yet, his social media platform has the potential to become the “best generalist app.”

Though Musk mentioned the features to add on X ahead, there was no mention of adding a cryptocurrency payment system over the platform. He proclaimed to make the popular microblogging social media platform turn into an “everything app” and adding a payment solution is also said to be part of his plan.
