Strong institutional demand has propelled Bitcoin and many altcoins to new all-time highs.
Bitcoin (BTC) broke out to a new all-time high today, buoyed by the news that Tesla has purchased $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
In addition to the Bitcoin purchase, Tesla also plans to offer its customers the option of buying products with BTC. Instead of converting BTC payments to fiat upon receipt, Tesla may decide to add it to its reserves.
