Elon Musk Hints that Starlink Could Be the Next Company to Accept Dogecoin (DOGE)

Elon Musk’s backing of Dogecoin needs no explanation. At the event in which Musk was named the TIME’s 2021 Person of the Year, Elon Musk explained why Dogecoin was better, in his opinion, than pioneer cryptocurrency, Bitcoin.

Weeks after, Musk announced that his electric car company, Tesla, would begin accepting Dogecoin for the purchase of merchandise. Now, albeit much more subtly, Musk may have hinted that another of his companies will soon accept DOGE.

Musk Hints at Starlink Accepting Dogecoin

In what seems to be a random Twitter exchange regarding Tesla’s FSD AI, one Twitter user, Johnna Crider, raised the idea that SpaceX and Starlink should accept DOGE. 

Starlink is a satellite internet constellation that provides high-speed broadband internet access to individuals worldwide.

Musk, who called himself the ‘Doge Father,’ replied to the idea with a simple winking face emoji.

Lending credence to the cryptic message, SpaceX launched a Moon mission in 2021 titled “DOGE-1 Mission to the Moon,” which is intended to be entirely funded in Dogecoin. The mission is to demonstrate the application of crypto even outside earth.

With Dogecoin going to the moon quite literally, and this new cryptic message from Elon Musk, the Doge community’s hopes have been raised that Starlink, and possibly SpaceX, could go in the same direction as Tesla and soon accept the token.
