Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla, has been on the agenda with his statements about cryptocurrencies recently. By writing Bitcoin on his Twitter profile, Musk succeeded in increasing the value of the world’s most popular crypto currency, and while talking about Dogecoin recently, Tesla received a last-minute statement.
Electric car giant Tesla announced that it purchased $ 1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin. While the acquisition became official with the notification to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), it was emphasized that the company took this step as a long-term investment and was also interested in other cryptocurrencies.
