After Tesla, SpaceX to accept Dogecoin for merchandise soon
Tech billionaire Elon Musk said that his aerospace company SpaceX will soon accept Dogecoin as a payment option for merchandise, joining Tesla. Musk who has openly shown his likeness towards Doge for the past couple of years – will begin accepting the coin as payment for SpaceX merch soon.
Currently, SpaceX’s merchandise shop still only accepts credit card payments.
The electric vehicle company started accepting the cryptocurrency in January. At Tesla, to purchase using Dogecoin on the Tesla Shop, a customer needs to have a “Dogecoin wallet.” A Dogecoin wallet is a device, platform, app, or software that supports Dogecoin transfers.
Musk, a frequently vocal supporter of some cryptocurrencies, announced on Twitter, first reiterating that Tesla merch could be bought with the crypto.
Musk wrote on Twitter, “Tesla merch can be bought with Doge, soon SpaceX merch too.”

However, the concrete date of when it would begin accepting Dogecoin for the merchandise has neither been announced by Musk, nor SpaceX, yet.
As per reports, the shop items are also only listed in dollars by default in the US, and no cryptocurrency conversions or prices are available for any items in the shop.
Musk also stated that “maybe one day” Starlink users would be able to pay for their subscriptions to the internet service with Doge. Musk did not detail a specific date for this, either.
