Tesla’s Updated Payment Methods Include Dogecoin

In the biggest meme coin news this week, Tesla is now accepting DOGE as payment for its products.

The payment page has been updated to include this mega-popular meme coin.

“Look for the Dogecoin symbol next to the “order” button for Dogecoin-eligible products,” the FAQ page says.

To make a purchase on the Tesla Shop, users will need a Dogecoin wallet. The buyer is responsible for any fees associated with a Dogecoin transaction, it added.

However, there are significant drawbacks to take into account when making purchases.

All Dogecoin purchases are final – the order can’t be canceled, and the items cannot be returned or exchanged for another product or cash.

Dogeverse Presale Hits $13 Million Milestone

Dogeverse is one of the hottest meme coins at the moment. It is the first meme coin operating across six major blockchains.

Notably, it raised nearly $1 million in less than two days after its presale launch in April.

While its presale is still ongoing, the team behind it announced on Thursday that the project raised over $13 million.

We Did It! $13 Million.

The main idea behind Dogeverse is to create a joint crypto universe for coin holders to trade across different blockchains.

The rising investment suggests investor confidence in the project’s potential and a notable market demand for the token.

Dogeverse’s price will go up with each stage of presale.

The team has plans to list its native token (DOGEVERSE) on different exchanges.

The roadmap also includes plans to offer higher rewards and expand use cases, which could drive demand and increase the token’s value.

Additionally, the team recently launched the official website, promoting “Cosmo, the chain-hopping Doge” as “the heart of Dogeverse.”
