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.

Rumors have been circulating on Twitter after multiple individuals took a closer look at Tesla’s Javascript code on their website and found code that includes DOGE as a payment option for three different vehicle models.

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.

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.

DOGE Price Update

This news sent the price of Dogecoin up amidst the rise of the entire crypto market yesterday. DOGE gained around 7 %, and what is more impressive is the trading volume actually doubled. The news wasn’t enough to send Dogecoin “to the moon” (as Elon would say), but DOGE continues to steadily increase amidst a sea of red. Over the past 24 hours, all 15 top market cap coins are in the red, except DOGE.
