The council was first teased by Tesla CEO Elon Musk as “potentially promising”, but the website has officially clarified that Musk has no role at the BMC:

“Elon Musk has no role at the BMC. The extent of his involvement was joining an educational call with a group of North American companies to discuss Bitcoin mining.”

Musk had been previously criticized for his centralized attempt to control the mining industry on meeting the council members. However, Tesla CEO’s involvement with the group appears to have only involved as educational.

The group further confirmed that it is completely independent of the Bitcoin network itself and has no intentions to disrupt its decentralization.

Elon Musk Was Pressured to Drop Bitcoin Payments

Tesla CEO, Elon Musk had been pressured to cut down Bitcoin as payments for its electric car manufacturing company, according to the notable investor and Shark Tank host Kevin O’Leary.

“Elon was pressured, I believe, by the shareholders of Tesla to speak out about this because they live with sustainability committees, and they’re not on the side with Bitcoin being used as a currency to buy Tesla cars. And so they probably pressured him to make the statement he made” he said.

O’Leary even urged those involved with BTC mining to resolve the ESG (environmental, social, and governance) issues while validating Tesla’s decision “echoed what every institution is saying they need an answer to the sustainability issue. You can’t just burn coal to mine bitcoin. That has to stop if you want institutions.”
