Elon Musk Denies Reports Of Bitcoin ATM At Nevada Gigafactory

KEY POINTS

  • Tesla CEO said reports of a Bitcoin ATM inside one of its facilities are inaccurate
  • LibertyX reportedly added Bitcoin selling feature to three ATMs at the facility
  • They can be accessed only by Tesla employees

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has denied recent reports that there is a Bitcoin ATM inside the car company’s Gigafactory in Nevada.

“I don’t think this is accurate,” Musk tweeted Monday, while replying to a tweet by news website Teslarati. The Teslarati tweet has since been deleted.

On Sunday, Will Reeves, the CEO of cryptocurrency payments and rewards app Fold, tweeted about spotting a LibertyX “bitcoin ATM at the Gigafactory,” along with a Google Maps image. LibertyX is a manufacturer of cryptocurrency ATMs in the United States. 

News outlet Finbold, on Sunday, reported that the LibertyX Bitcoin ATM, mentioned in the tweet, was in existence at the Gigafactory since August and it was only available to Tesla employees. The report said LibertyX did not install any new ATM kiosk but added Bitcoin selling feature to three ATMs that were already there at the facility.

In a statement to Finbold, the firm said it partnered with ATM manufacturers Genmega and Hyosung to offer “Bitcoin software preinstalled on traditional ATMs. Once operators activate the feature, consumers can start buying bitcoin with their debit card from ATMs nationwide.” 

LibertyX said there are already 5,000 ATMs with the feature activated in various locations across the nation and it is planning to roll out to more than 100,000 ATMs after this year.

Musk was a known advocate of cryptocurrency, although he claimed he only owns 0.25 BTC. Some recent data showed similarities between the benchmark cryptocurrency and Tesla stock.

In the past, people even speculated that Musk is the real identity of Satoshi Nakomoto, the anonymous creator

SAP’s Bob Stutz rips off the enterprise software pricing Band-Aid as DSAG reports significant redlines in member revenue

(Image by pasja1000 from Pixabay)

Last Friday, Paul Greenberg and Brent Leary, two of the best-known analysts in the CRM space hosted a public LinkedIn video discussion with senior executives from SAP, Oracle, Adobe, Microsoft, and Salesforce. Events of this kind are rare and there are plenty of learnings to be had from that session.

Towards the end of the 90 plus minute discussion, Bob Stutz, President of Engineering and Operations for SAP Customer Experience threw a curveball that has long been missing from discussions around responses to the COVID-19 pandemic:

I think the biggest question that I constantly get, and it’s not directed towards the current company I work for, but more around the industry is when is the software industry going to change its pricing model?…I mean, subscription models are hard. And, constantly I get asked the question, when will this industry move to a pay as you consume model?  And it’s a valid question at the end of the day. Why should in this day and age, when you look at how things are built, if I use the hyperscaler, I get billed for what I consume, and it’s pretty darn accurate down to the second, usually? But if I use an SFA app, I’m getting charged a subscription. And depending on which company it is, it could be anywhere from $150 to $800 a month. And the question really is a valid one. When will the industry change?

Why can’t I just pay for what I use at the end of the day? I think in the pandemic, this is even more critical because companies do struggle. Subscriptions are killing because customers can’t afford to keep paying the subscriptions, especially when their business is faltering. Why does the industry make me pay from the time I
