It has been almost 24 hours since Tesla CEO Elon Musk launched a poll to find out if the community wishes the prominent car maker to start accepting meme coin Doge as payment.

Over three million people vote for Tesla + "DOGE"

Up to this very minute, 3,901,106 votes have been counted, with 78.2 percent of the respondents voting "yes"—that is over three million voters. And 21.8 percent voted against it.

Earlier this year, Elon Musk made a statement that Tesla would start accepting the world's flagship cryptocurrency, BTC, as payment from customers. He promised that the received Bitcoin would not be converted into fiat.

Tesla also allocated $1.5 billion to buy Bitcoin. Later on, however, it was revealed that the company cashed out 10 percent of its BTC holdings.
