For How Much did Tesla it Bitcoins?

According to the SEC filing, Tesla sold its Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency holdings before June 30. On the other hand, it is unclear exactly when Tesla sold their cryptocurrency.

Tesla bought its first bitcoins in the first quarter of 2021 for $1.5 billion but hid the average price paid. Later in the first quarter, the corporation sold a 10% portion of its holdings in bitcoin, increasing its earnings by $272 million. Until the most recent quarter, it hadn’t increased or decreased its stakes. 

Although the company withheld the selling price for its bitcoin in the second quarter, a quick calculation reveals that the average price would be roughly $29,000 per bitcoin, saving Tesla from having to take a significantly larger impairment charge. About $18,700 was the price of bitcoin at the end of the second quarter.
