The 10-k SEC filing submitted by Tesla for the fiscal year 2020 shows the company owns $1.5 billion worth of bitcoin.

The announcement was found in a SEC Form 10-k filing which says the firm may “hold and may acquire digital assets that may be subject to volatile market prices, impairment and unique risks of loss.â€

“In January 2021, we updated our investment policy to provide us with more flexibility to further diversify and maximize returns on our cash that is not required to maintain adequate operating liquidity,†the Tesla 10-k SEC filing continues.

“As part of the policy, which was duly approved by the Audit Committee of our Board of Directors, we may invest a portion of such cash in certain alternative reserve assets including digital assets, gold bullion, gold exchange-traded funds and other assets as specified in the future. Thereafter, we invested an aggregate $1.50 billion in bitcoin under this policy and may acquire and hold digital assets from time to time or long-term,†the SEC filing notes.

“Moreover, we expect to begin accepting bitcoin as a form of payment for our products in the near future, subject to applicable laws and initially on a limited basis, which we may or may not liquidate upon receipt,†Tesla’s filing details.

Significantly large BTC short positions were immediately liquidated at $42,700 per unit. After the Digital Currency Group founder, Barry Silbert, tweeted about the competition between Microstrategy and Grayscale, and Silbert welcomed Elon Musk into the race.

“Player 3 has entered the race. Good luck, Elon Musk,†Silbert tweeted. At the time of publication, bitcoin (BTC) is exchanging hands for prices between $43k and $44k.
