The billionaire’s stipulation came with a further condition that the name change must remain in effect for a minimum of a year. The problem is not changing the name but in the name that he wants Wikipedia to change to.

Musk had made multiple posts earlier Sunday criticizing the Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit that hosts Wikipedia, for asking for money.

It all started after the X (formerly Twitter) owner, Elon Musk shared a screenshot of Wikipedia’s homepage which read “Wikipedia is not for sale” and “a personal appeal from Jimmy Wales”.

“Have you ever wondered why the Wikimedia Foundation wants so much money? It certainly isn’t needed to operate Wikipedia.

“You can literally fit a copy of the entire text on your phone! So, what’s the money for? Inquiring minds want to know.” he captioned the post.
