Bitcoin recorded over 11% rise Sunday when following Elon Musk’s comment that Tesla Inc. will resume accepting bitcoin when mining is done with some 50% clean power.


“When there’s confirmation of reasonable (~50%) clean energy usage by miners with positive future trend, Tesla will resume allowing Bitcoin transactions”, Musk said on Twitter on Sunday.

Bitcoin hits $39,000 representing morethan 11 % increase in value, according to Coindesk data as a result of that revelations.
