CEO of electric car maker Fisker on why the company won’t accept crypto
Henrik Fisker, the founder and CEO of electric car maker Fisker, says his company won’t accept cryptocurrency due to environmental concerns, adding that he is ‘open to’ accepting digital currency if it’s’ sustainable.’
Photos of Fisker Inc. CEO Henrik Fisker's meeting with Pope Francis on May 20 to pitch building an electric "Popemobile" may be worth a thousand words and millions in marketing exposure, but video from the event tells a bit more of the story about how it played out.
Fisker told FOX Business that a mutual acquaintance "set up the meeting, we met in the Vatican, it was an amazing experience."
Video posted by the Vatican News shows that two were introduced in a reception line during an event in Rome’s Trastevere neighborhood at the headquarters of the Scholas Occurrentes, an international student educational outreach started by Francis when he was an archbishop in Argentina and constituted as a International Organization of Pontifical Law in 2013. Francis was there to celebrate the opening of five new offices for the organization around the world via a livestream broadcast.
The property isn't in Vatican City proper, but is one of several extraterritorialities of the Holy See located within Rome. Fisker’s wife, Fisker CFO Dr. Geeta Gupta Fisker, met Francis first and said she was "very honored and humbled to help this great cause for the children" before asking him to "bless our car company."
