He had promised it, it is now possible … Elon Musk, the CEO of TESLA, just announced on Twitter that his American customers can now reserve their cars in Bitcoins! Last February, he announced that Tesla had just bought $ 1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin and promised that its customers would be able to use this cryptocurrency very soon.
Less than 3 months later it’s done! The “privilege” of paying Bitcoin is reserved for American customers for the time being, but Musk is making a new promise! This payment method will be available to customers all over the world in a few months!
Musk also makes it clear that the bitcoins will not be converted into dollars, but will be held. Using a VPN, you can find out how Americans can now pay for their Tesla with Bitcoin! The reservation fee is 0.0018 bitcoin or $ 100 at the current bitcoin price.
Specifically, you have to pay 1.42 BTC for a Tesla Model S Long Range or 2.04 BTC for the brand’s latest model called Plaid! Almost daily fluctuations in Bitcoin can cause the initial amounts to vary quickly. And even more so when this means of payment for an electric car spreads around the world.
You can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin

In 2013 a used Tesla was sold for the modest sum of 91.4 bitcoins … That would be a $ 5 million car today! In 2011, one bitcoin was equivalent to $ 0.30! Do a quick calculation to see how much this cryptocurrency has grown in less than 10 years!
