Elon Musk has been showing his interest in cryptocurrency for a while now. The Tesla CEO has announced that customers will now be able to buy a Tesla by paying in Bitcoins. Musk made the announcement official via his Twitter handle.
Just like most of his tweets, this one was also a one-liner. He just tweeted, "You can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin." He further shredded more light into this by tweeting, "Tesla is using only internal & open source software & operates Bitcoin nodes directly. Bitcoin paid to Tesla will be retained as Bitcoin, not converted to fiat currency."
Elon Musk further claimed that initially buying a Tesla using Bitcoin will only be possible in the U.S. However, they will soon bring the capability to other countries like Canada, United Kingdom and more.
