Tesla’s crypto holdings have remained consistent since the last quarter of 2022. Until September 30, 2022, the carmaker held $218 million worth of digital assets on its balance sheet. The company’s first Bitcoin purchase came in early 2021 when it spent a whopping $1.5 billion on the flagship cryptocurrency. This was followed by a rally in BTC’s price after CEO Elon Musk indicated that customers could purchase his electric vehicles by paying in BTC. However, the ambitious plan was abandoned after Musk cited environmental concerns associated with BTC.

The lawsuit cited a series of crypto wallets allegedly owned by Tesla; however, the latest response by Musk claimed that his EV company was not associated with the wallets listed in the complaint.
