Tesla accepts DOGE, SpaceX testing Dogecoin payments

In December 2021, e-car producing giant started Dogecoin trials by selling some of its merchandize for the original meme cryptocurrency.

Now, it appears that SpaceX is also testing DOGE payments as Dogecoin has been recently spotted in the source code of SpaceX earlier this week.

Aside from that, Elon Musk himself has hinted recently that in the future both Starlink and SpaceX may start accepting Dogecoin payments.

Campaign for DOGE tipping on Twitter

Earlier this week, U.Today reported that DOGE cofounder Billy Markus shared an idea on Twitter on “pestering” the team of the social media giant with the #DogeTwitterTipJar hashtag. The goal is to get Twitter to introduce tipping in Dogecoin after they had enabled users to tip their favorite content makers in Ethereum.

A Bitcoin tipping feature was rolled out in September 2021. Now, Billy Markus is urging the community to sign a petition to get Twitter to launch tipping in the “OG cryptocurrency” DOGE.
