However, by making a massive investment in the world of Bitcoin, it has mesmerized the whole world in a jiffy. According to a report, the organization has potentially invested around USD 1.5 billion in the market to diversify its enormous revenue. And, since the announcement, the overall rate of BTC has skyrocketed to USD 44,000 within a single day. It is expected to amplify even more in the near future as well.

But, why did Tesla make such a bold move all of a sudden, especially during such a financial crisis? Well, since the inception of BTC, Elon Musk has always supported it vocally. Moreover, over the years, he has also tried to endorse the same through social media and other platforms. So, now, he has decided to take the endorsement on another level by investing in it publicly. However, as per reports, that does not seem to be the only reason in this aspect. There is a lot more to it. So, be sure to keep reading the write-up until the end.

As a substantial part of the same plan, the company said that it would attempt to invest in another asset, including the digital ones. Hence, in a way, the investment was not sudden at all. It was pre-planned and well-executed. So, after proper speculation and assessment of the market, Tesla decided to invest USD 1.5 billion in BTC.

The policy of the same depicts that the electronic car-making organization can hold the acquired digital asset either for a long- or a short-term period. Nevertheless, the news does not end here. Aside from it, Tesla has also suggested that it would soon begin accepting Bitcoin as a proper form of payment in the upcoming future.

The policy will be made after reviewing the laws regarding it. Hence, it might take more than a year for Tesla to implement it.
