Tesla may return bitcoin as payment
Tesla hinted in a report to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that it may again start accepting cryptocurrencies as payment for its products. She noted that she “believes in the long-term potential of digital assets,” both as an investment and as an alternative to cash.
Elon Musk's "relationship" with bitcoin began in February 2021, when Tesla invested $ 1.5 billion in bitcoin with an average purchase of $ 34,963. And in March, the electric car manufacturer began accepting payments in bitcoin for its products. However, in May of this year, the initiative was canceled due to the "non-ecological production" of the first cryptocurrency.
