Dogecoin climbs as Elon Musk says it can be used to buy Tesla merch

Dogecoin (DOGE-USD) tokens briefly climb past $0.20 per coin after Elon Musk said the meme coin can be used to buy Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) merchandise. "Tesla merch buyable with Dogecoin," according to Musk's Twitter post. Dogecoin (DOGE-USD +11.9%) jumps to the 11th largest crypto by market cap on Friday, standing at $25.4B. But the coin is still well off its $0.69 peak in May, now changing hands at $0.19 per coin, according to data from CoinMarketCap. This isn't the first time Musk mentioned the Shiba Inu meme token in the context of payment transactions.
