“Tesla merchandise for sale with dogecoin,” Musk tweeted. It includes a belt, a whistle, and a quad for children. In December, the billionaire had already announced that that possibility would come. After Musk’s tweet, dogecoin received a significant boost. According to crypto platform Coinbase, the value rose by almost 14 percent on Friday.
Dogecoin – symbolized by a meme of a dog – was launched in 2013 as a joke on the internet. Musk, who has repeatedly shown support for the crypto currency, has already caused large fluctuations in value several times with tweets.
