Tesla Inc chief Elon Musk has just tweeted that people can now buy a Tesla vehicle using Bitcoin. Last month Tesla had also confirmed purchasing $1.5 billion of bitcoin and would soon accept it as a form of payment for cars. Having said that, this mode of payment is currently active in the United States only. According to the sources, the Bitcoin payment option will be available outside the United States in the coming months.
Tesla is using only internal & open-source software & operates Bitcoin nodes directly.
Bitcoin paid to Tesla will be retained as Bitcoin, not converted to fiat currency.

Nothing like good old fashioned bullish news to reverse a short-term downtrend. Yes, Tesla accepting Bitcoin payments and running its own Bitcoin nodes is massively bullish. Others will follow.
