In this U.S., the only payment option for the medical-grade stainless steel collectible is Dogecoin, the meme-based cryptocurrency that Musk has taken a particular interest in. When Tesla first began accepting DOGE as payment for merchandise in January, the Cyberwhistle cost just 300 DOGE.
DOGE is currently trading 68% below its January price level ahead of $0.19. At press time, DOGE was trading at $0.06, down 5% over the last 24 hours, as per data from Benzinga Pro.
After Musk’s tweet, crypto trader Jackson Markley noted that 50 million DOGE was traded in under one minute.
