After making a massive investment of $1.5 billion in Bitcoin, the electric car manufacturer firm Tesla has now announced to accept payments in the world’s biggest digital currency.

This news has turned the leading cryptocurrency bullish.
US Citizens Can Now Purchase a Tesla Using Bitcoin
Elon Musk, who is Tesla’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), has made another big move. After stepping into the world of digital currencies with a gargantuan $1.5 billion BTC investment, Tesla CEO has now announced to add support for Bitcoin as a payment method in order to allow people to purchase Tesla with this renowned cryptocurrency.
The company is going to allow only the resident of the United States to access this offering which means those residing outside of the US will not be able to purchase a Tesla with Bitcoin as the offering is not supported in the world’s other countries. However, the company has plans for extending this offering to other countries as well, and the company is expected to do that before the end of the current year.

On the 24th of March, Tesla CEO said that you are now allowed to buy Tesla with BTC. Within the time frame of few minutes, over 15k retweets were seen on this tweet.
