Elon Musk talked business with Turkey's President Erdogan. No, Dogecoin and the lira were not discussed
Other topics discussed at the virtual meeting included the online economy and electric cars, Anadolu Agency reported.
The call comes amid an unprecedented slide in the Turkish lira, while Musk is known for advocating crypto alternatives to fiat national currencies, most famously Dogecoin. However, this was not broached in the meeting.
Musk - founder of the Tesla car company and wealthiest person on Earth - spoke with Erdogan about Ankara's space efforts and Turkish state and private collaboration with Musk's firms, particularly on space and satellite development, the Turkish Communications Directorate said.
Time made Musk its 2021 Person of the Year on Monday.
