What’s new? Electric car manufacturer Tesla has again added bitcoin to the code associated with making payments on the official website. This was noticed on July 20 by a Twitter user under the nickname LilMoonLambo. The ability to buy cars with BTC was first introduced in February 2021 and was active until May, when CEO Elon Musk announced the suspension of the initiative.

What else is known? To check for bitcoin in the code on the site, users need to go to, right-click and go to the code review section. Next, they need to type the word “Bitcoin” in the search bar and press “Enter.”

The fact that the company does not exclude the resumption of car sales for bitcoins became known in October 2021. Then in materials for the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Tesla indicated that “in the future restart the practice of transacting in cryptocurrencies.” The company emphasized that it considers digital assets as a tool for preserving value.
