The American corporation Tesla, which produces electric vehicles, will again start accepting bitcoins as payment for its products when receiving this type of cryptocurrency becomes more environmentally friendly, CEO Elon Musk tweeted.
The entrepreneur noted that in the future, Tesla will again allow Bitcoin transactions.
As Musk noted, this will happen when there is evidence that the persons involved in the generation of this cryptocurrency receive approximately 50% of the energy required for this from environmentally friendly sources.
The businessman also added that Tesla had previously sold about 10% of its Bitcoin holdings.
According to him, this was done to confirm that bitcoins can be easily traded without hesitation in the market.
Earlier this year, Tesla announced that it had invested $ 1.5 billion in bitcoin and is starting to accept this cryptocurrency as payment for its products. Musk said in May that Tesla was suspending accepting bitcoins because the methods of obtaining this cryptocurrency are not environmentally friendly.
