One thousand five hundred million dollars is what Tesla has spent to buy Bitcoins, which has caused another new push up in the valuation of said currency. It is something that could be seen coming, because Elon Musk already put the word “Bitcoin” in his Twitter bio a few days ago, so those who knew how to listen, bought on time.
The data is known because the reports are public, as well as the presentation of the Securities and Exchange Commission, but the news does not end here, as Tesla plans to accept the cryptocurrency as payment for its cars at some point in the future.
At the moment Bitcoin already exceeds 36,000 euros, and continues to rise as a result of the operation of one of the largest technology manufacturers in the world.
