Tesla Will Start Accepting Payments in Dogecoin


Tesla: SpaceX founder Elon Musk is known for his interest in the cryptocurrency scene, especially when it comes to dogecoin. This Tuesday (14), Musk posted a message on Twitter and revealed that Tesla’s store will begin testing to accept payments in dogecoin.

According to the billionaire, the cryptocurrency could be used to buy some Tesla products, ranging between $50 and $1,900, but he didn’t specify which ones — in the store, brand fans will find everything from the Cyberwhistle whistle , even the Cyberquad quad for kids, both recently announced.

“Tesla will make some products buyable with Doge and see what happens,” Musk revealed in a tweet.

Payment in dogecoin: accepted!

A few hours after the tweet, the value of the coin rose by as much as 24%, from US$0.15 to US$0.21 — at the exact time this news was published, the average value is US$0.19. Anyway, it’s important to remember that Musk’s tweets about dogecoin have already increased its value by up to 5,859%.

A few months ago, Tesla’s CEO took a poll on his Twitter profile questioning users’ interest in using dogecoin to buy the brand’s products. In May, the electric vehicle maker stopped accepting bitcoin payments just two months after it started accepting the currency.

It is important to point out that the novelty will only work with products from the Tesla store, that is, at least for the time being, it will still not be possible to use dogecoin to buy the brand’s electric vehicles.
