However, the San Francisco-based company will only add such an alternative payment option when crypto becomes more efficient and environmentally friendly. 

Bitcoin’s massive energy footprint has been a major hurdle to wider merchant adoption. Tesla, the top e-car maker, suspended payments in the flagship cryptocurrency last May because of persistent climate-related concerns.

With that being said, it should be noted that the share of sustainable energy in the Bitcoin mining sector has now climbed to 58.5%, according to a January survey published by the Bitcoin Mining Council (BMC).     

Tesla, however, continues to hold roughly $2 billion worth of Bitcoin on its balance sheet. 

When it comes to corporate adoption, Khosrowshahi rejected the idea of adding cryptocurrencies to Uber’s balance sheet last September:
