General Motors may start selling cars for bitcoin
General Motors CEO Mary Barra said the auto giant could start selling its cars for BTC. According to her, this is possible if such a need arises among the company's clients. “Nothing prevents us from doing this. We will be guided by the wishes of our customers,” Barra said. Earlier, the media wrote that Tesla abandoned the idea of selling its cars for bitcoins. Canadian entrepreneur Kevin O'Leary said Tesla shareholders had a significant impact on the decision to refuse to accept payments in BTC. John McAfee claims to have lost his cryptocurrency fortune
American businessman John McAfee, who is in a Spanish prison, said that he had lost his fortune in cryptocurrencies, and other assets of the entrepreneur were confiscated. In the US, McAfee faces legal proceedings related to allegations of tax evasion, money laundering, and market manipulation. “The US believes I have hidden crypto. I wish I did but it has dissolved through the many hands of Team McAfee (your belief is not required), and my remaining assets are all seized. My friends evaporated through fear of association. I have nothing. Yet, I regret nothing," McAfee wrote on Twitter. CEO of Pantera Capital is confident that the time has come to buy BTC
Pantera Capital CEO Dan Morehead spoke about the fall in the cryptocurrency market and the resulting panic. According to the entrepreneur, this is a great opportunity to buy bitcoins. In a letter to investors, Morehead noted that it is necessary to buy digital currencies, like any other asset, when the markets are "below trend." In the case of BTC, now is a good period for its acquisition - bitcoin was so “cheap relative to the trend” only 20.3% of the time during its entire existence. The investor believes that the significant increase in the rate of the main cryptocurrency in the last year is not evidence that bitcoin is overvalued. “The year-on-year return never went literally off-the-chart like in past peaks. It’s currently trading at 281% year-on-year — which seems entirely plausible given the money printing that has occurred in that period,” Morehead said.
