Bitcoin investors have been asking Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, for years whether they can buy cars or tickets to Mars with the leading cryptocurrency. It’s become somewhat of a recurring meme, where when Musk mentions Bitcoin or cryptocurrency, those with BTC would ask if they can use it as a means of payment.
Responding to author Ben Mezrich’s comment that he will “never be paid in bitcoin again, Musk said, “me neither.” Mezrich is the author of the Bitcoin-themed book Millionaires by accident, which tells the story of the Winklevoss Twins and their rise to billionaire cryptocurrency.
While it’s unclear whether Musk is joking or not, in response to his tweet, many asked if they could buy Tesla Model 3s with BTC.
