Elon Musk gave a signal that soon it will be possible to buy Tesla cars or tickets to Mars paying in Bitcoin
The richest man in the world, Elon Musk, said on Twitter that „I would never refuse a payment at Bitcoin. The billionaire is CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, two giants in the United States.
For years investors in Bitcoin have been asking Elon Musk if in the Bitcoin Investor future it will be possible to buy cars or tickets to Mars with the digital currency.
Speaking about payments with crypto currency, Ben Mezrich said on Twitter that he „would never refuse a payment in Bitcoin.
Elon Musk replied, „Neither would I“.
Ben Mezrich is the author of the film The Social Network, which tells the story of Facebook, and author of the book Bitcoin Billionaires, which tells the story of the Winklevoss twins and how they became billionaires after investing in Bitcoin.
Although it is not clear if Musk is joking or not, in response to his tweet, many asked if they could buy a Tesla Model 3s with Bitcoin.
Elon Musk’s favorite cryptomeda is Dogecoin. However, he recently admitted to be enjoying Bitcoin by tweeting that digital currency is his „safety word“.
Before that, he said he would like to have Ethereum too (even if it’s a farce).
Earlier this week Bitcoin appreciated in value and reached a record $42,000, a figure never seen before that left the market capitalisation of digital currency at just $4 billion above Tesla.
In a notable Twitter incident, Musk signaled a possible entry into the world of crypto currency when he engaged in a debate with MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor.
The businessman advised the now richest man in the world to do his shareholders a favor and invest part of Tesla’s balance sheet in Bitcoin.
Elon asked the CEO if such a large transaction would be possible, and then Michael Saylor called him into a private conversation.
The result of the conversation was not disclosed.
For Elon Musk to accept payments in Bitcoin would not be a difficult task, it would be enough to adopt some payment platform, such as BitPay, and the currency holders could make the purchase directly.
Bitcoin has made new riches with the last high, certainly many people have some currencies to spend.
In Las Vegas, for example, a luxury car dealership has reported growth in payment sales in Bitcoin. The Vegas Auto Gallery has become a playground for Bitcoin wealthy investors.
No major automaker accepts Bitcoin yet, Elon Musk can make history if it begins to accept.
