Elon Musk is marching to the Bitcoin future as Tesla goes all the way – you can buy Tesla with BTC now. Largely, just like we collect registration for Tekedia Mini-MBA with BTC, there is no risk on this playbook. Yes, Tesla can get you to pay with BTC, and settle the transaction immediately in USD in its bank account. Where people have problems is when they begin to hold BTC in perpetuity.
