Tesla is testing payments with Dogecoin, but ticker is “SHIBA”

One more day, Elon Musk is once again attracting attention among cryptocurrency fans. This time Tesla’s CEO may have indicated that the assembler could move to accept payments with Dogecoin, surely such a development would be very positive for the price of cryptocurrency.

According to the website Gadgets, Tesla is testing the use of Dogecoin as a payment method. An analysis of the source code on the Tesla website shows options for “Buy like SHIBA” listed among the existing choices, in addition to purchasing with a credit card and Bitcoin.


The site points out that Twitter users started looking for more information in the source code and said they found information that “SHIBA” is actually a codename for Dogecoin and not for Shiba Inu (SHIB), as some were thinking.

The choice of Dogecoin makes a lot of sense, after all, Musk is always talking about the currency and has always declared his appreciation for the cryptocurrency community.

Because of Musk’s influence, Dogecoin ended up gaining some positions in the overall ranking and even entered the top 10 with the appreciation it had between 2020 and 2021 with the help of the billionaire.

Also according to Gadgets, Twitter user @Tree_of_Alpha revealed that the option to place orders using Shiba leads to an attempted purchase processing page with DOGE and not SHIB, confirming that the nice cart’s original currency may be Tesla’s choice in the future.


According to user findings, the payment system is relatively advanced. However, after the findings, there was no comment from Elon Musk or Tesla about the possibility of Dogecoin being used as a form of payment for the company’s services and products.

Remember that while Musk was hyping Dogecoin in early 2020, he even took a poll on his Twitter asking if his followers would like the possibility of paying for a Tesla using the cryptocurrency.

This is certainly encouraging for Dogecoin holders, but it can be a test that doesn’t go beyond the planning stage.
