Elon Musk has said his rocket company SpaceX will now accept the meme-inspired cryptocurrency dogecoin as payment.

In a tweet he said the commercial space exploration firm will launch the “DOGE-1 Mission to the Moon” early next year.

It came as dogecoin continued to fall after the technology billionaire said on television that it was a “hustle”.

Last month, he tweeted that SpaceX was going to put a “literal Dogecoin on the literal moon”.
