Tesla has already made more than $1 billion (£727 million) from the bitcoin investment it made in January, thanks to the cryptocurrency nearly doubling in price over the last 10 weeks.

The electric car maker used $1.5bn of its cash reserves to buy an estimated 48,000 bitcoins earlier this year, when the cryptocurrency was trading between $30,000 and $40,000.

Bitcoin was off nearly 3% at $61,490 versus the dollar at 0754 GMT after the Turkish ban, which was criticised by the main opposition party.

Einhorn said Elon Musk and venture capitalist Chamath Palihapitiya ... Read more »
