Tesla starts accepting Bitcoin as payment method

Tesla Inc. has enabled customers to buy vehicles using Bitcoin as a payment method, CEO Elon Musk announced on Wednesday.

"You can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin," Musk tweeted. "Tesla is using only internal & open source software & operates Bitcoin nodes directly. Bitcoin paid to Tesla will be retained as Bitcoin, not converted to fiat currency," he added.

Earlier this year, the electric carmaker announced it bought $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin to ensure "more flexibility to further diversify and maximize returns" on its cash.
