Tesla to accept DOGE for merchandise

Elon Musk said Tesla Inc. will accept payment in Dogecoin for some merchandise, in the latest in a series of tweets supporting the cryptocurrency.

Some of Tesla’s “merch” would be buyable with the digital coin, the chief executive officer said Tuesday, with products including the $150 Giga Texas belt buckle featuring the carmaker’s logo. Last month, Tesla’s $50 Cyberwhistle sold out almost immediately.
