Musk launches a Twitter poll on Dogecoin and Tesla

Musk is a big fan of DOGE and he talked about this coin a lot of SNL this Saturday during his appearance.

Earlier today, the Musk announced that Tesla would start accepting Bitcoin and would not convert BTC into fiat.

However, as it turned out later, the company cashed out 10 percent of its BTC holdings after all. According to Musk, this was done to prove the Bitcoin’s liquidity.

Now, Elon considers whether Tesla should begin accepting his favourite meme-coin DOGE and has launched a poll on his Twitter page to see what the community thinks about it.
