In case you haven't heard of it yet, Bitcoin is open-source peer-to-peer electronic currency, basically money you trade on a computer. It's freely traded and its value is decided by trading, like stocks and bonds.

Lamborghini Newport Beach
, an exotic car dealer from Costa Mesa, California, says it sold the white Tesla Model S Performance and received this online tender in return. We have no details about the transaction, but the Tesla looks like it's worth about $90,000, which is equivalent to about 75 Bitcoins right now.

An electric car bought with electronic money – wait until Musk hears about this!
