Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said previously that the company would not get involved in cryptocurrency, although he has shown some admiration for Bitcoin (BTC).
Bitcoin’s structure is brilliant but I don’t think it would be a good use of Tesla’s resources to get involved in crypto.
In fact, Elon Musk has had mostly positive things to say about Bitcoin and cryptocurrency, once saying that whoever owned the “early BTC deserves a Nobel Prize in delayed gratification” and that “cryptocurrency is my safe word”.
Developers have been designing new ways to integrate cryptocurrencies, whether it be tipping services on social platforms or ways to send and receive crypto between users on said platforms.
