The vehicle manufacturer’s latest earnings report for the third quarter shows it’s made no changes to its Bitcoin holdings since its huge sell-off in the second quarter.
Electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla has made no further changes to its remaining stash of Bitcoin in the third quarter of 2022, despite nearly a $1 billion sell-off in the previous quarter.
The company’s Q3 report, released Oct. 19, shows $218 million worth of “digital assets” remains on its balance sheet, with no reported losses in the value of its holdings. Based on current prices, it’s estimated that Tesla still holds around 9,720 BTC.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk explained at the time that the sell-off was due to liquidity concerns from the COVID-19 lockdowns in China.
The sell-off during the quarter took a large chunk of the company’s $1.5 billion position in Bitcoin, which it had revealed in February 2021, at the time, made it one of the largest corporate holders of Bitcoin.
Overall for Q3 2022, Tesla posted $3.3 billion in profits attaining revenues of $21.45 billion, which reportedly fell short of analysts’ expectations, and saw Tesla’s stock price fall by nearly 14% in after-hours trading, according to Yahoo Finance.
