Tesla Allows Dogecoin Payments:
On December 14, 2021, Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed in a tweet that:
Tesla will make some items purchasable with the Doge.
He added that they will see how it goes.
It’s only been a few weeks since the announcement, and Tesla has already made DOGE available as a payment method for merchandise.
This means that customers can now choose from a variety of items, with the option to pay for them with the popular meme currency.
These items include some electronic equipment.
Tesla makes DOGE the only cryptocurrency payment option:
Interestingly, this decision makes Dogecoin the only cryptocurrency accepted by the electric car giant.
Although in early 2021, Tesla began accepting bitcoin for its cars, it quickly backtracked a few months later.
The company’s CEO became concerned about the potential environmental impact of bitcoin mining and removed bitcoin as a payment option, which was followed by a significant price drop.

DOGE is up 14% in 24 hours and climbed to a monthly high (above $0.2) this morning, following the Tesla announcement.
This also marks the fifth consecutive day of gains for the currency, which is now up about 25% over the past week.
