Elon Musk names himself 'Technoking of Tesla'

Elon Musk continues to make Tesla sound like a fun and chill place to work, moving on Monday to name himself "Technoking of Tesla," in addition to the more prosaic "CEO." The regulatory filing, reported by People, additionally announced that Zach Kirkhorn, chief financial officer and first of his name, will be anointed Tesla's "Master of Coin."

Musk, who previously erected a guard tower outside the SpaceX headquarters and called it "medieval futurism," is a big fan of Game of Thrones in addition to being a generally irritating person. It would appear, however, that Kirkhorn's title also serves to reference Tesla's recent, massive investment in Bitcoin.

Admittedly, it is not the most auspicious title, judging by what happened to the last Master of Coin.
