Tesla’s bitcoins have brought a “loss” to the company? The company’s digital asset depreciated by $ 51 million, but this is at the end of the third quarter
Tesla has published a report on the results of the third fiscal quarter of this year. And it mentions the company’s loss from investments in bitcoin in the amount of $ 51 million.

Tesla’s third quarter ended on September 30. On that day, Bitcoin was worth a maximum of about $ 44,000. At the same time, since that moment, the price of the asset has grown by one and a half times, so now the company is clearly in the black. However, according to US law, although the company is obliged to stipulate the depreciation of digital assets in its financial statements, it is not required to indicate their growth. According to some estimates, Tesla now owns more than 43,000 bitcoins, which at its current exchange rate equals more than $ 2.8 billion. In terms of the financial statement as a whole, the company generated $ 13.76 billion. Net income amounted to $ 1.62 billion, which is almost five times more than a year earlier. The automotive business earned the company $ 12.06 billion, and the company raised another $ 806 million from its energy business, which combines energy storage and rooftop solar panels. …
