“I wanted a little bit more due diligence to confirm that the percentage of renewable energy usage is most likely at or above 50 per cent and that there is a trend toward increasing that number, and if so Tesla would resume accepting bitcoin,” Musk said.
“Most likely the answer is that Tesla would resume accepting bitcoin,” he added.
