Tesla accepts Bitcoin as payment to buy new cars, said Elon Musk in a Tweet.
Mr. Elon Musk, this Wednesday, 24 (March 2021), tweeted that “you can now buy Tesla with Bitcoin” and that “all Bitcoin paid with Bitcoin will be retained and not converted to FIAT”.
All orders in the US, to buy a Tesla, can now be reserved by paying the equivalent of a $100 deposit in Bitcoin.
It seems that in the upcoming months, this option will be rolled to other countries as well.
The California-based company invested $1.5 billion investment in Bitcoin in February and signaled its intent to begin accepting the cryptocurrency as a form of payment at the time, catapulted prices to a new ATH. The world’s leading EV maker made the Bitcoin bet after updating its investment policy in January to allow it to buy digital assets.
Bitcoin rose 3% to $56,108.
