Tesla CEO Elon Musk has announced that his company will now be accepting Dogecoin as payment at its Supercharger station in Santa Monica. Taking to his Twitter account, he confirmed that the Dogecoin will be one of the modes of payment at Tesla‘s Santa Monica supercharging stations. As expected, this announcement triggered a slight upward trend in Dogecoin’s value.
However, the 50-year-old business magnate did not confirm what customers can purchase using the meme-based cryptocurrency.
Nevertheless, a report by IndiaTimes confirms that the Santa Monica Supercharger has become the first Supercharger in the EV maker’s network to accept crypto as a mode of payment.
This is actually unsurprising, considering that Musk deemed Dogecoin “Egod” back in March last year. Many assumed that Tesla Supercharger stations will start accepting DOGE.
