Tesla Source Code Indicates Dogecoin Could Be Used As Payment Soon
Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter in late 2021 to announce that Tesla is going to be accepting DOGE as payment for “merch”. A month later, it appears that Tesla’s source code is ready to accept DOGE as payment, but it is not activated yet.

A software engineer known as “Tree of Alpha” on Twitter investigated the rumor more closely. Apparently, Tesla added a custom icon for DOGE payments and put their “crypto_continue.html” back online, which is meant to handle crypto payments.
Tesla now added a custom SVG icon for the Dogecoin payment option as well as a golden doge-like background color.

After having removed it before, Tesla also put the "crypto_continue.html" page, meant to handle Crypto payments, back online.https://t.co/TqixyDrD6i
You will find CSS for Doge integration directly into the source code of that page, as well as in its JS/CSS dependencies. pic.twitter.com/rgfKWcbzX7

Although none of this news has been confirmed by Tesla directly, it points to the fact that Tesla is likely to soon accept DOGE for cars — and not just “merch”. Basically, the payment option for DOGE is currently just hidden, so most people looking at their website can’t see it yet, but among closer examination of Tesla’s source code, it’s there.

Over the past 24 hours, all 15 top market cap coins are in the red, except DOGE.
