Elon Musk says Tesla may start accepting bitcoin again.
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, and SpaceX said today that Tesla would likely return to accepting the cryptocurrency Bitcoin as payment. The electric vehicle maker moved to ban Bitcoin due to grievances over the impact its mining process has on the environment. Many bitcoin miners have since moved to implement renewable energy sources in response. Tesla CEO had tweeted in June that he would allow bitcoin transactions again “when there’s confirmation of reasonable (~50 %) clean energy usage by miners with the positive future trend.” Musk had gotten a lot of flak from the crypto community for suspending bitcoin payments.
