“Of course, you can pay in DOGE”: Elon Musk
Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, revealed over the weekend that Tesla charging stations will be able to accept Dogecoin as payment in the future.
On Twitter, the CEO added, “And, of course, you may pay in DOGE.” Tesla’s Ryan Zohoury tagged Musk in a post regarding Tesla charging stations that opened recently in Santa Monica, and Musk reacted. According to Elon Musk, Tesla also wants to build “a futuristic diner/drive-in cinema” in the Hollywood district.
According to U.Today, Dogecoin creator Billy Markus proposed using the #DogeTwitterTipJar hashtag on Twitter to “pester” the social media giant’s workers.
The idea is to persuade Twitter to introduce Dogecoin tipping after allowing consumers to pay their favorite content providers in Ethereum.
