Tesla boss Musk wants to accept Bitcoin again with a better environmental balance

According to company boss Elon Musk (49), Tesla will only accept Bitcoin as a means of payment again when the environmental balance of the digital currency improves significantly.

As a benchmark, Musk stated in a tweet on Sunday a share of renewable energy of around 50 percent in Bitcoin production. Bitcoin are created through complex arithmetic tasks on computers. Large amounts of electricity are used in this process. Environmentalists therefore criticize the digital currency as a climate killer.
