Elon Musk is still holding his BTC
In the slide deck that is accompanying the company’s Q1 earnings results Monday, Tesla mentioned the sale of some BTC.
“Year over year, positive impacts from volume growth, regulatory credit revenue growth, gross margin improvement driven by further product cost reductions and sale of Bitcoin ($101M positive impact, net of related impairments, in ‘Restructuring & Other’ line) were mainly offset by a lower ASP, increased SBC, additional supply chain costs, R&D investments and other items. Model S and Model X changeover costs negatively impacted both gross profit as well as R&D expenses,” as the online publication mentioned above notes.
