Bitcoin traded at Rs 50,40,223 around 8.25 am (India time) with a dominance of 46.49 percent. This was a 1.16 percent decrease over the day.
In February, Tesla revealed it had bought $1.5 billion of Bitcoin, world’s leading cryptocurrency, and would accept it as a form of payment for cars.
He announced in May that Tesla would no longer accept Bitcoin for car purchases, citing long-brewing environmental concerns for a swift reversal in the company’s position on the cryptocurrency. Bitcoin fell more than 10% after his tweet.
The billionaire said that he believed cryptocurrency has a promising future, but it cannot be at great cost to the environment.Internet Explorer Channel Network
