You’re probably sick of hearing about Time’s Person of the Year – Elon Musk, but we couldn’t resist mentioning him one more time.

When we’ve mentioned him it’s typically been his latest favoured cryptocurrency, which has changed a few times this year to the benefit or expense of holders of those coins.

Crypto aside, the Telsa boss has had a good year, with his company’s share price surging another 50%+. He also cashed out over US$14 billion of shares in 2021.

But this week, Musk has discovered he just might have a long lost twin brother. A Chinese man gained fame on Chinese social media for looking exactly like him. His appearance and expressions were just like Musk and he was standing next to a luxury cary – it was unclear if it was Tesla.

Musk briefly responded saying,” Maybe I’m partly Chinese.” This has led to netizens coming up with all kinds of names for him including “Elon Mosaic,” “Clone Musk,” or even a Chinese name, “Yi Long Musk…”

To markets…
