The option is currently only available to the company's American clients. “Tesla will not convert bitcoins received as payment into fiat currency,” Musk said.
Against the background of the company's announcement, the bitcoin rate began to rise sharply. Over the past hour, the cryptocurrency has risen in price by $ 1.7 thousand, to the current level of $ 55.4 thousand per virtual coin.
The opportunity to order a Tesla car for bitcoins appeared today on the company's official website.
After specifying the details of the order, the client will be redirected to the payment page with the address in the form of a QR code and in alphanumeric format, as well as the amount to be paid in cryptocurrency.
The company notes that it is not responsible for sending bitcoins to the wrong address and may cancel the order if an incomplete amount is received. After successful payment, the client will receive a notification to the email address specified during the ordering process.
Earlier it was reported that Tesla earned more thanks to its investments in cryptocurrency in January 2021 than in all of 2020, thanks to the sale of its cars.
