In a surprising move, Tesla has quietly updated its website to allow customers to pay with Dogecoin (DOGE) for the new Tesla Cybertruck model.
Because when the site codes are examined, it is seen that there are many new codes related to DOGE integration.
However, this change has not been officially announced, it is currently only available as coded information on the website and it is not currently possible to pay with DOGE.
This isn't the first time Tesla has accepted Dogecoin as a form of payment. Previously, when Tesla added the ability to pay for an ATV for kids with Dogecoin, the DOGE price increased significantly. However, the price had dropped the next day.
Tesla's journey with the Cybertruck has been a long one. The first production candidate Cybertruck was completed in July, nearly four years after it was first announced and two years after production was scheduled to begin. Last year, CEO Elon Musk cited supply chain issues affecting the supply of components as a factor in delaying Cybertruck production to 2023.
After four years of delays and missteps, the Tesla Cybertruck has finally arrived. Musk hosted a delivery event at the company's factory in Austin, Texas, where he highlighted the vehicle's towing capabilities, bulletproof doors, and straight-line speed. A few customers picked up their Cybertrucks at the event, but opening the door was a bit difficult. Following the event, the company published updated details about the vehicle's features, price, and more on its website.
Elon Musk previously accepted Tesla car payments with Bitcoin, but canceled this type of payment, citing environmental concerns.
