Tesla Model S sells in digital currency

  • After a university gave its students the option of paying their tuition using Bitcoins, the currency recently took another step toward becoming mainstream: A Newport Beach Lamborghini dealer sold Tesla Model S for 91.4 Bitcoins, using its payment service. 

    China, on the other hand, doesn't let banks use Bitcoin since the nation looks to "protect the status of the renminbi as the statutory currency, prevent risks of money laundering, and protect financial stability." 

    Speaking of risks, reports suggest that a scammer may have stolen Bitcoins worth $100M.
