Amidst the ongoing Bitcoin rally, famous celebrities and millionaires are extensively participating in the crypto space. One such name is Elon Musk, the founder & CEO of conglomerates – Tesla and SpaceX. An engineer and business magnate, Elon Musk has led to massive transformation for both the companies to empower innovation globally. Moreover, he is famously known for his association with meme cryptocurrency, Dogecoin.

With Bitcoin on a continuous rally surpassing the people’s imagination, Musk mentions that he is never turning down payments in Bitcoin again. Moreover, this was in response to author Ben Mezrich’s comment. Mezrich is an American author with a writing career spanning over 19 years, authoring more than 20 books. One of his popular works includes the Mark-Zuckerberg themed-book “Accidental Billionaires.” It revolves around the story of Mark Zuckerberg and the rise of Facebook to a gigantic corporation.

However, it is unclear if Musk was keen about the remark. Twitter gained widespread attention, with many actively replying to his tweet. They enquired if Musk would integrate cryptocurrency payments for Tesla Model 3s cars. Also, one of the users @PostyXBT replied to Elon’s post saying,

“Elon my good friend, If you integrate the @HoldHQ wallet into @Tesla dashboards, I think that would be the final push I need”
