Earlier, U.Today reported that Elon Musk stated in an interview that Dogecoin is much more convenient for payments than Bitcoin. However, he did refer to BTC as a store of value.
At the start of this year, Tesla began accepting Bitcoin for its e-cars. However, later on, the company shut down BTC payments as Musk became concerned with the harm to the environment brought on by Bitcoin mining. That rejection of BTC payments by Tesla crushed the Bitcoin price.
