Elon Musk announced that Tesla has begun accepting payments with Bitcoin.
Tesla, of which Elon Musk is the CEO, announced last month that he purchased $ 1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The electric car manufacturer, which left its mark on the sector with this acquisition, made a new Bitcoin decision. Accordingly, Tesla announced to the public that it started accepting payments with Bitcoin.
If you remember, after the $ 1.5 billion Bitcoin purchase, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk announced that the company will soon start receiving payments with cryptocurrencies. Drawing attention with these statements, the CEO confirmed this situation with a recent tweet.
“You can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin.” Announcing that customers will be able to pay with crypto money, Musk also said that these transactions will be carried out via open source software. In addition, underlining that this payment feature is limited to the USA for now, Musk states that this payment method can be used in other countries towards the end of this year.
