For years, Bitcoin investors have been asking Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, if they can buy cars or tickets to Mars with the leading cryptocurrency. It’s become somewhat of a recurring meme, where whenever Musk mentions Bitcoin or cryptocurrency, those with BTC would ask if they can use it as a means of payment.

Responding to author Ben Mezrich’s comment that he’s “never turning down getting paid in bitcoin again, Musk said, “me neither.” Mezrich is the author of the Bitcoin-themed book Accidental Billionaires, which tells the story of the Winklevoss Twins and their rise to billionaire status via cryptocurrency.

While it is unclear if Musk is joking or not, in reply to his tweet, many asked if they could buy Tesla Model 3s with BTC.

Me neither

Musk Talks Bitcoin, Dogecoin

Over the past few months, Musk has mentioned Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and other cryptocurrencies on Twitter on multiple occasions.

Responding to a comment on BTC from JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, Musk said that internet money is more viable than fiat money, which is being inflated away.
