Musk added that Tesla is running their own Bitcoin nodes. He further stated that Bitcoin received by the California-based firm would not be converted to fiat.
Tesla’s Bitcoin support page indicates that if a user sends the incorrect amount, their transaction might get canceled. Those interested in buying a Tesla with Bitcoin must also be residents of the United States.
