Yes, you read it right. Now you can purchase a Tesla Car with Bitcoin.

Recently, Tesla converted $1.5billion to Bitcoin and the company is now offering the Bitcoin as a payment method starting with the US. Tesla head Elon Musk confirmed the news on Twitter and said it payments to Tesla will “be retained as Bitcoin”.

Elon Musk tweeted: “You can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin.

“Tesla is using only internal and open source software and operates Bitcoin nodes directly.

“Bitcoin paid to Tesla will be retained as Bitcoin, not converted to fiat currency.”

He further added how paying via Bitcoin will be “available outside” the US later this year.

Over recent weeks, Mr Musk’s social media presence has helped to move financial markets.

Last month, the price of bitcoin also rose after Mr Musk said he was a “supporter” of the cryptocurrency.

Mr Musk said on Clubhouse: “I am late to the party but a supporter.

“I think Bitcoin is on the verge of getting broad acceptance by conventional finance people.”

He added: “Many friends of mine have tried to convince me to get involved in bitcoin for a long time.”

He then posted: “In retrospect, it was inevitable.”

Bitcoin’s price rose above $38,000 after the Tesla boss changed his Twitter biography to “#bitcoin”.
