Dogecoin has skyrocketed again quite a bit After Elon Musk’s tweets that Tesla merchandise is now ‘Purchasable‘ with tokens. In a tweet on January 14, 2022, Elon announced that now Dogecoin can be used as a means of payment for Tesla purchases.
This statement then brought Dogecoin to fly away that nearly 20% of the previous price. Elon Musk, also known as the founder and CEO of Tesla, has once again given a boost to the meme-inspired cryptocurrency Dogecoin. And this seems to be a breath of fresh air in the future, especially for the digital currency Crypto Dogecoin.
Previously, Musk also tweeted in December saying that electric car maker Tesla would accept Dogecoin as payment for merchandise. Therefore, the price of Dogecoin immediately jumped high. Referring to CoinMarketCap data on Friday (12/1) at 14.20 WIB, the price of the meme-based cryptocurrency shot 19.08% to the position of US$ 0.2029.
Following the recent decline in all digital assets, the price of meme-coin has slumped to its lowest point since April 2021. Musk’s tweet in December 2021 about the dogecoin trial also gave him a good boost.

Last year, electric carmaker Tesla briefly accepted bitcoin payments for its products, including its cars. However, those payments immediately stalled in May 2021 after Musk voiced concerns about the environmental damage bitcoin mining was doing.
