Spacex and Tesla CEO Elon Musk say that dogecoin will soon be accepted at Spacex for goods, in the same way that Tesla accepts DOGE payments. Furthermore, Starlink subscriptions can also be paid with dogecoin «one day».
Spacex will soon accept Dogecoin for goods
Dogecoin received a small boost on Friday when Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced via Twitter that Spacex will soon accept the meme cryptocurrency for goods. The Spacex boss tweeted: “Tesla goods can be bought with DOGE, soon also Spacex goods.”[ads1];
In addition, Musk said that Spacex’s Starlink subscriptions can “one day” be paid with dogecoin. Starlink offers “High-speed, high-latency high-speed broadband Internet in remote and rural locations around the world,” the website describes.
After Musk’s tweet that Spacex accepted dogecoin, the price of the meme cryptocurrency increased. At the time of his tweet, DOGE was trading at $ 0.078399 per coin. It quickly rose more than 8% to $ 0.084927. However, the meme coin soon lost most of its winnings and is currently trading at $ 0.081469.
Tesla began accepting dogecoin payments in January for some items, and the electric car company currently does not accept any other cryptocurrencies. The company used to accept bitcoin for products, but stopped due to environmental concerns. Musk said in June last year that Tesla will continue to accept BTC when miners can confirm 50% clean energy use. However, he has not yet taken up the subject again.
Musk has long been a supporter of dogecoin. He is known in the crypto community as the Dogefather. The Tesla boss previously revealed that he owns bitcoin, ether and dogecoin. However, Spacex only owns bitcoin. In April, Tesla’s balance sheet shows $ 1.26 billion in digital assets.
The Spacex boss said in May that dogecoin has potential as a currency while bitcoin is better suited as a value store.
The CEO of Tesla and Spacex is currently trying to buy Twitter. However, the agreement is currently put on hold pending details that support the calculation that spam and fake accounts represent less than 5% of users of the social media platform.
