Tesla Website Adds Dogecoin Payment Code Again


After Twitter sleuths spotted references to DOGE in the source code, Tesla appears to have re-added Dogecoin payment logic to its website backend.

Excitement built over Tesla’s expected inclusion for Dogecoin after the brief addition of ‘SHIBA’ to the payment code last year. The code, however, was removed, and Tesla continues to refuse to accept DOGE.

This follows Elon Musk’s announcement that Tesla will begin selling products using Dogecoin in the near future.

The Tesla Model Y payment website has been modified yet again, this time with specific mentions of Dogecoin, as originally observed by Twitter user @BitDeepu.

The ‘v3’ source code, which was verified by Planet Crypto and Twitter user @KBluezr, clearly references Dogecoin as a cryptocurrency in a payments section.

The code ‘crypto: “Dogecoin” is, for example, in a section with different payment kinds in one case. Apple Pay, cards, and direct debits are all included. Two references to Dogecoin’s brand colours may also be found in a second file in the source code.

In addition, Dogecoin appears to be the sole cryptocurrency supported by the payment code. Bitcoin, which was previously accepted, is not mentioned.
