Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced this in his Twitter account.
Currently, this payment option is only available in the United States, but Musk promises that by the end of the year, residents of other countries of the world will be able to buy electric cars with Bitcoin.
However, a number of Musk’s Twitter followers are still complaining that even for the United States on the Tesla website, for some reason, there is no way to choose payment in bitcoins. Others have already boasted of a successful payment.
Also, while Tesla sells only cars for bitcoins. Car accessories and other goods presented on the company’s website are not yet sold for cryptocurrency.
The bitcoins paid to Tesla will be saved as bitcoins and not converted into fiat currency, Musk assured.
It should be added that against the background of this news, the bitcoin rate rose again, reaching 56.2 thousand US dollars.
As a reminder, in February it became known that Tesla acquired bitcoins in the amount of $ 1.5 billion.
