Pizza Day 2.0: Acheter une Tesla avec Bitcoin pourrait être une erreur

Le prix du Bitcoin a connu une forte volatilité depuis qu’Elon Musk a révélé sur Twitter que sa société Tesla commencerait à accepter Bitcoin comme mode de paiement.

Presque immédiatement, la plate-forme de médias sociaux a été remplie de captures d’écran de ces commandes en cours d’exécution, mais ces acheteurs impatients prêts à échanger leurs pièces pourraient finir par vivre avec un énorme regret. Voici comment deux délicieuses pizzas s’intègrent dans ce casse-tête et pourquoi même quelque chose de plus précieux comme une Tesla pourrait encore être un mauvais achat à la fin.

Comment dépenser du BTC sur une Tesla pourrait être une énorme erreur

Cette semaine, le PDG et fondateur de Tesla et SpaceX, Elon Musk, a révélé que le constructeur automobile vert avait permis au site Web de la société d’accepter Bitcoin comme mode de paiement pour les véhicules proposés.

Internet a été mis en effervescence avec les nouvelles et le prix de la pièce a grimpé en flèche au départ. Un rejet de la résistance a secoué le marché pour un bref passage – avant l’expiration des options historiques de cette semaine.

But as crypto bull Max Keiser points out, ten years from now, people will be shocked that someone was foolish enough to have spent a whole Bitcoin on a Tesla.

The comment isn’t meant as an insult to anyone taking the plunge and buying a Tesla with their coins, but is a reality that hindsight might end up making the purchase a regrettable one. Returning a Tesla is also a catch-22 for those paying in BTC.

The One Time Eating Pizza Was Regrettable, But Without It Bitcoin Might Not Be

On May 22, 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz announced via the BitcoinTalk forum that he had successfully purchased two pizzas in exchange for a total of 10,000 BTC.

At the time, the coins were worthless by all standards, not even yet trading for a penny each. In his mind, he was getting a great deal and making history by completing the first ever documented transaction for goods involving Bitcoin.

Today, those 10,000 BTC are worth half a billion dollars, making those two pizzas the most regrettable pizzas of all-time. Even someone who got food borne illness from a pie, would have less lasting impact than wondering what could have been.

A Tesla now costs nearly a full coin – which is a heck of a lot more valuable than two pizzas. However, given how fast cars depreciate the moment they’re driven off the lot, and how far Bitcoin could ultimately climb in years to come, could make buying a Tesla with BTC just as regrettable as Laszlo’s transaction in 2010.

In ten years’ time, people could be appalled by the idea of spending a full coin on a car. The major difference between these people and Laszlo, is that he’s a pioneer that will forever by synonymous with the history of the cryptocurrency, potentially being a primary factor in its development into what it has become today.

Who knows, without his proof-of-concept purchase of two pizzas, the technology might have failed to gain mainstream adoption. And while buying a Tesla is cool and all, there’s nothing more recognizable than a delicious pizza pie.
