A member of the Dogecoin and X teams known as “DogeDesigner” (@cb_doge) has made an important statement to the DOGE army about exactly which cryptocurrencies are accepted by Elon Musk’s leading company Tesla, the electric car maker.

Among frequent cases of scammers and rumor-makers spreading misleading data about Tesla giant and crypto, @cb_doge issued a reminder that Tesla accepts payments in just one cryptocurrency – Dogecoin.

The DOGE community took in this announcement very positively. One X user tweeted that it is time for Elon Musk “to replenish the store for us with some goodies,” which can be bought with Dogecoin.

In January 2022, Elon Musk announced that Tesla started accepting DOGE as an experiment. Since then, users have been able to buy Tesla merch in the company’s online store using the original meme cryptocurrency. Among the merchandise being sold for DOGE are the “Giga Texas” belt buckle and a Tesla Cyberwhistle.

A few months later, SpaceX did likewise and began selling its merchandise for DOGE. In May this year, Dogecoin was officially added as a payment option to Tesla’s website.

During a recent visit of Berlin Gigafactory, Musk confirmed that at some point Tesla is likely to start selling e-cars for DOGE.

Several times this year, Musk confirmed that neither X, nor Tesla nor any of the companies run by Musk is going to release a native cryptocurrency. This followed multiple misleading rumors about X planning to roll out an “X coin.”
