Mary Barra, CEO of automotive giant General Motors, gave the green light that the company will start accepting cryptocurrency for payment.
General Motors CEO Mary Barra summarized the company ‘s position on selling cars with cryptocurrencies in an interview with CNBC .
When asked about Bitcoin by Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jones , Merry Barra said that General Motors can sell its cars for Bitcoin if there is enough demand from buyers . This official statement shows the company’s position on the matter. No provisions regarding safety , transparency or ecology . My speech is clear.
Tesla had given up on this decision.
Given that the announcement was made by the CEO and during a serious interview with a channel specializing in financial news , it’s also unlikely that General Motors will back down on its promises in the future .
In March, Tesla announced that its electric cars would be sold for Bitcoin, and in May , Elon Musk announced that they had withdrawn this decision due to the harmful effect of the cryptocurrency on the environment . In any case, it is possible to say that big companies are not in a hurry to switch to Bitcoin and are thinking about how they can use this cryptocurrency in their own business .
