Musk also said on Monday he held talks with Bitcoin (BTC) miners in North America and they have committed to publishing current and renewable energy usage. Musk’s comments indicate he may be rethinking his stance on Bitcoin following Tesla's announcement about halting payments in the apex cryptocurrency on May 12.
