The new payment policy is only available in the United States for now, but Musk said it would be made available to other countries later in the year.

“You may not make purchases with us using any other digital asset, including Bitcoin fork products, such as Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin SV. Our Bitcoin digital wallet is not configured to detect or receive digital assets other than Bitcoin.”
