Bitcoin (BTC) hodlers can now all own a Tesla electric car — as long as they have at least 1 BTC in their wallet.
As BTC/USD crossed $34,000 at the weekend and went on to hit $35,600 on Jan. 6, the brainchild of Elon Musk became more affordable than ever.
2021 exchange rate: 1 BTC = 1 Tesla
As per pricing on Tesla’s official website, the company’s entry-level offering, the Model 3, retails at $33,960 in the United States if no environmental fuel rewards are applied.
Musk, who has long taunted Bitcoiners with tweets and comments which leave it unclear whether he supports it, continues to face pressure to accept the cryptocurrency for Tesla purchases.
“A #bitcoin now buys you a Tesla. So, when will you accept it, @elonmusk ?” popular Twitter account Documenting Bitcoin wrote at the weekend.
Samson Mow, CEO of Blockstream, also noted the brand new price parity as Bitcoin hit new all-time highs.
