There were rumors about whether Elon Musk’s Twitter would accept Dogecoin payments, and he only fueled them.
After months of speculation, drama, and lawsuits, Musk’s acquisition of Twitter was completed in less than a week.
Previously, Tesla CEO Elon Musk promised to improve the social media platform by removing bots and fake accounts, among other initiatives.
Following the firing of most executives, Musk announced on Twitter a monthly subscription that will allow blue-tick certification, which will differ from the current system of “lords and peasants.”
The initial speculation was that it would cost $20 per month, but he stated that it would be $8.
His concept will now work in tandem with Twitter Blue, a $5 monthly subscription for “more comfortable reading mode and editing tools.”
Given Musk’s previous hints that Dogecoin could be used for these types of payments, the crypto community was quick to ask if such a feature would be available soon. In keeping with his nature, his response was more curious than informative.
Although he has yet to confirm this, it is worth noting that the majority of the other businesses he owns accept DOGE as payment. The Boring Company was the most recent to do so.
