Musk also said that Tesla plans to also open a “futuristic restaurant/drive-in theater” in the Hollywood precinct. People will be able to pay for all of that with Dogecoin, according to Musk.
Previously Tesla accepts Dogecoin payments for its merchandise in web store. Now, it appears that SpaceX is also testing DOGE payouts as Dogecoin was recently spotted in SpaceX's source code earlier this week.
Additionally, Elon Musk himself recently hinted that in the future Starlink and SpaceX could start accepting Dogecoin payments. It didn't stop there, Dogecoin founder Billy Marksu also joined the DOGE campaign so that Twitter would accept the meme coin as a tip. Now Markus is encouraging the Dogecoin community to sign a petition for Twitter to launch a tip with the crypto image of the Shiba Inu dog.
