قد تبدأ شركة جنرال موتورز في بيع السيارات مقابل عملات البيتكوين
General Motors can follow in Tesla's footsteps by selling its cars for cryptocurrency, but does not intend to invest in it. This was announced by the company's CEO Mary Barra.
General Motors became aware of the potential use of the main cryptocurrency on the market as a means of payment when Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas asked the CEO about it. Barra responded only to clarifying that the company is still looking at the asset and assessing whether customers are interested in using it to pay for the automaker's products.
