Elon Musk has revealed that Tesla’s upcoming futuristic diner and drive-in theater, planned for the Hollywood area, will accept the meme cryptocurrency dogecoin.
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted about future dogecoin payment acceptance Friday in reply to a tweet by developer Ryan Zohoury, who said a new Tesla supercharger station in Santa Monica, California, is almost full 10 minutes after it opened.
Elon Musk is always looking for ways to innovate. One of the ways he does this is by incorporating cryptocurrencies into his creations. The latest example of this was last week when Elon Musk tweeted that Tesla’s upcoming futuristic diner and drive-in theater in the Hollywood area will accept DOGECOIN as a payment option.
Some people are skeptical about Elon Musk’s announcement and think it is just another publicity stunt to get people talking about his company again or because he really really likes Doges (the currency).
