TIMES person of the year Elon Musk is doubling down on his Dogecoin (DOGE) payment take as he announced Tesla will accept DOGE payments for some of its merchandise.  Musk in a tweet said the company would see how Dogecoin payment works with the system.

The announcement comes just a day after Musk claimed DOGE could work as a better payment system than Bitcoin (BTC). Musk made those comments in his TIMES interview where he claimed BTC is not suitable for daily payments.

“Fundamentally, bitcoin is not a good substitute for transactional currency,” Musk told Time Magazine after being named Time’s 2021 Person of the Year. “Even though it was created as a silly joke, dogecoin is better suited for transactions.”
