Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted today that they have started accepting Dogecoin (DOGE) for merchandise payments. Previously, on December 14, he mentioned in a tweet that they might start accepting payments for merchandise purchases via DOGE crypto token. Earlier, Tesla even accepted Bitcoin for a shorter duration for selling cars. However, customers won’t be able to buy electronic vehicles using Dogecoin as of now.

Musk has been very vocal about the uses of the DOGE blockchain and has tweeted about the same several times in the past. He has even said that he will work closely with the developers of DOGE and help them.

Not only Tesla but several other major retailers and companies also accept DOGE as a payment method. Some of them are, SpaceX, Dallas Mavericks, Newegg, Kronos Advanced Technologies, Energy Electronics, AirBaltic, Snel.com, Post Oak Motor Cars, HostMeNow.org, Estate Diamond Jewellery, and others.
