Meme-based cryptocurrency Dogecoin jumped on Friday after Tesla CEO Elon Musk mentioned the electrical carmaker will settle for it as fee for merchandise. “Tesla merch buyable with Dogecoin,” Musk tweeted. His mid-December tweet saying such use of dogecoin will be allowed on a test basis sent the cryptocurrency up more than 20 percent.

Dogecoin, popular among retail investors, raced up 18 percent to above $0.2 (roughly Rs 14) after Friday’s tweet. Musk’s tweets on the cryptocurrency, including the one where he called it the “people’s crypto”, buoyed the meme coin and precipitated it to soar roughly 4,000 p.c in 2021.

Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency invented by software program engineers Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer, who determined to create a fee system. Almost 113 billion cash have already been mined.

Musk had earlier confirmed that the corporate is “most certainly” going to resume taking Bitcoin payment after some due diligence on the improvements in the energy mix used to mine the cryptocurrency.

“I wanted a little bit more due diligence to confirm that the percentage of renewable energy usage is most likely at or above 50 per cent, and that there is a trend toward increasing that number, and if so Tesla would resume accepting bitcoin,” Musk mentioned.
