Has Bitcoin lost one of its biggest supporters?

The electric carmaker Tesla, run by Elon Musk, has stopped accepting payments in Bitcoin, due to the environmental impact of mining the cryptocurrency. It's a major blow for supporters of Bitcoin, as Tesla's endorsement of it as a payment method in February was one of the factors which pushed its price to record highs. The price of Bitcoin slumped up to 11% in the hours after the announcement. Also today, Germany's financial regulator orders extra supervision of online bank N26.
