Elon Musk Polls Whether Tesla Should Start Accepting Dogecoin

Earlier today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to start a new poll asking, “Do you want Tesla to accept Doge?”, as he referred to the cryptocurrency Dogecoin (via Tesla North).

The poll, which has already received nearly 4 million votes with 11 hours still to go as of writing, shows that almost 78% of voters want the electric car maker to start accepting Dogecoin as a payment method for its vehicles.

Following Musk’s SNL appearance over the weekend, SpaceX also made a surprise announcement saying it would accept the DOGE cryptocurrency for a lunar satellite mission in Q1 2021. Ever since, many have already speculated it would only be natural for Tesla to accept Dogecoin as payment, with the latter joining Bitcoin.

While it is not yet known if Musk is being serious about Tesla accepting DOGE, but he has been backing the cryptocurrency for quite a while now.

Musk’s tweet asking the question sent DOGE shares up 20%, before falling back down to $0.50 USD.
