Okay, we’ve all wanted a piece of the Tesla, and probably were still figuring out how to ship it into the continent, let alone drive it on these streets. But could you dream of spending your bitcoin on the car in any one moment? Huh!?
Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that it is now possible for people to buy Tesla vehicles in the U.S. with bitcoin. “You can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin,” tweeted Musk.

As you may anticipate, the news is a big push that is to take Bitcoin to the next level. Over the past few months, the cryptocurrency has been on the rise and is just not about to stop.
By now you ought to have known that Tesla recently bought $1.5 billion worth of bitcoin. The point that it would soon start accepting the world’s most popular cryptocurrency as a form of payment speaks volumes to the support the company has for it.
People outside the U.S. will be able to buy a Tesla with bitcoin “later this year.” Elon, however, did not disclose the countries outside the US that will be able to purchase Tesla cars using Bitcoin. Tesla is now using “internal” and “open-source software.”
The Tesla CEO added that the company “operates bitcoin nodes directly.” Nodes are computers on bitcoin’s network that work to verify transactions and avoid the cryptocurrency from being spent twice.
