SHIB Army Rejoice: Elon Musk Sells His "Burnt Hair" Perfume for SHIB

Elon Musk sells his perfume for SHIB

On Wednesday, Oct. 12, the Tesla boss and the world's richest, if not to say extravagant, entrepreneur Elon Musk announced the launch of a branded perfume produced by one of his companies. Curiously enough, it was The Boring Company, the enterprise whose mission is to solve the problem of traffic in cities by making tunnels underground.

The perfume is callee "Burnt Hair" and sells for $104 a bottle. On the first day of the launch, 10,000 bottles worth $1 million were sold.

Musk announced in a tweet that DOGE is acceptable as payment; however, BitPay payments processor also provides the opportunity to pay in Shiba Inu, Bitcoin, Ethereum and several other cryptocurrencies.

The following day, Musk tweeted "20,000!!" which some believed to be a report on a rise in "Burnt Hair" sales.

The Dogecoin price did not respond to that. A member of the DOGE dev team even complained in a comment that he faced difficulty paying for the perfume in the meme coin, saying that the whole process was pretty complicated and never mentioning whether he finally succeeded or not.
