The report reveals how the company has been dealing with inflation and preparing for the upcoming economic meltdown. Tesla said that it converted about 75% of its BTC holdings into fiat currency. The conversion generated $936 million in cash for the company and left the value of its remaining “digital assets” standing at $218 million.
Last year, Tesla invested $1.5 billion in Bitcoin and announced that it would accept Bitcoin as payment. As promised, the company started accepting Bitcoin in late March, then abruptly reversed itself in May, just 49 days later.

The company reported $2.26 billion profit in Q2, a 31 per cent decrease from last quarter, when it announced profits of $3.3 billion. The profit was earned on $16.9 billion in revenue, which is also down from Q1, where the company reported bringing in $18.7 billion.
Tesla attributes that to several factors, including “lower stock-based compensation expense,” more vehicle deliveries compared to last year, and an updated average selling price.
