When the process begins, a 20 minutes countdown appears on the page. The buyers have to get done with the process within the time window or the DOGE amount expires.
Earlier, the rumors about the wide acceptance of the cryptocurrency boosted its price.
In December 2021, the CEO had said, “the company will make some merch buyable with Doge & see how it goes.”
At press time, the vehicles listed on the Tesla website continued to be listed in dollars as well as other items.
Chris Kline, the Bitcoin IRA’s co-founder, had already confirmed with his statement that Tesla would soon be accepting the meme cryptocurrency. “Elon Musk has been an advocate for the crypto community for many years. His latest announcement will usher in a new era of commerce and trailblaze a path for altcoins to expand their use case”, he said.
