Elon Musk has started a Twitter poll asking whether or not Tesla should accept dogecoin.

  • The poll had received more than 500,000 votes within 20 minutes of its posting, with the overwhelming majority (~75%) replying "Yes."
  • The Tesla CEO appeared on "Saturday Night Live" on May 8 in which some jokes about DOGE may have triggered a downturn in the meme-based crypto's price.
  • Elon Musk has been known to discuss crypto on his Twitter page, first announcing via a tweet in March that Tesla vehicles could be purchased with bitcoin.
  • He famously described DOGE as his "fav cryptocurrency" on Twitter in April 2019.
  • Thanks in part to Musk's tweets, the price of dogecoin has risen by nearly 11,000% year to date.
  • The poll has prompted a bounce in DOGE's price, trading at $0.52 at the time of writing compared to $0.46 beforehand.
