Elon Musk Unveils Powerful Tool to Combat Deepfakes on X

Tesla CEO and the new owner of the X platform (formerly Twitter), Elon Musk, has shared with the X and crypto communities that there is now a better tool to beat deepfake scams on this social media giant.

Musk revealed this while quoting a tweet from Community Notes – a feature on the X app that offers corrections to posts, often warning readers about fake or misleading information or simply providing updates. The Community Notes team has rolled out an update, which includes improved image-matching capabilities. This update will help show Notes on a larger number of X posts, roughly 30% more, that contain similar or identical images.

Elon Musk commented on this update: “This should make a big difference in defeating deepfakes (and shallowfakes).” His tweet brought up multiple comments from the crypto community, with many X users expressing excitement about this new rollout and thanking Musk and the Community Notes team.

Elon Musk, X, and the Battle Against Misinformation

XRP activist @XRPcryptowolf, who is familiar with making such comments, jokingly asked Musk once again when XRP payments would be made available on X. Earlier reports stated that Vet, an XRPL validator, dismissed rumors about testing XRP payments on the X platform. However, the company plans to launch internal payments later this year.

The Dogecoin community hopes that Musk, a big fan of DOGE, will add this meme cryptocurrency to the payment options on X. No one has spotted any recent statements from Musk about that yet. One thing is clear, though—according to Elon Musk’s tweets, X will not launch its cryptocurrency “Xcoin.”

This move by Musk and the X team to combat deepfakes and misinformation is a significant step towards ensuring the platform remains a reliable source of information and a safe space for users.
