Tesla’s cash burn is emptying its treasure chest faster than its high-flying stock and other cash-raising techniques have been able to fill it.

According to an analysis piece by Fortune, the electric carmaker is spending close to one bitcoin, or $8,000 per minute. That translates to $480,000 every hour or more than $1 billion a quarter. Actually, this year’s second quarter alone saw about $1.2 billion worth of expenditures to finance Model 3 production and battery development. At its current pace of spending, Tesla is projected by Fortune to run out of cash by Monday, Aug. 6, 2018.

Over the past few years, Tesla has come up with some creative methods to secure financing. Most recently, the company received large deposits for its new Semi and Roadster, at $20,000 and $250,000 per vehicle, respectively. Costs for the semi are tiered based on range – $150,000 for a 300-mile version, $180,000 for a 500-mile version, and $200,000 for a limited “Founders Series” model comprising one of the first 1,000 trucks off the assembly line, according to Tesla’s dedicated Semi website.

Likewise, 1,000 deposits of $250,000 apiece for Founders’ edition Roadsters would effectively secure Tesla with a $250 million interest-free loan for the next three or more years for the car projected for 2020.

Collecting large deposits was also done with Tesla’s Model 3 reveal in early 2016, which saw more than 325,000 reservations raising $1,000 deposits apiece.

Another method has been its much-publicized mid-2017 bond deal to finance production for the Model 3. That junk bond offering helped raise $1.8 billion, chipping in $300 million more than its planned $1.5 billion.

In a Nov. 1 letter to shareholders, Tesla reiterated its expectations for cash flows from operating activities to increase and its debt obligations to decline. It specified a cash balance of $3.5 billion entering Q4 2017. Also, the letter tried to inspire investor confidence by calling out a record number of orders and deliveries for the Model S and Model X.

Other reassurances include a production rate of 5,000 Model 3 vehicles per week by late Q1 2018, a roughly ten percent increase in the number of Supercharger stations, South Australia’s advancing energy storage project, and growing demand.
