Soon after the announcement, Bitcoin surged 14 percent, hitting a new record high above $44,000. Analysts believe that this latest move by Tesla, one of the world’s best-known companies, could prove to be a game-changer for bitcoin.

In its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the electric carmaker stated “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.”
