Tesla is yet to accept Dogecoin for its electric vehicles. The Tesla merchandise that can be bought using Dogecoin can drive the utility of the cryptocurrency. Dogecoin price received a major boost and posted over 16% gains within minutes. 

Tesla had started accepting Bitcoin payments in May 2021; however, the electronic vehicles giant stopped soon after, citing environmental concerns. Musk has repeatedly stated that Dogecoin is a better alternative for payments than Bitcoin. 

Dogecoin core’s new release reduces fees for all memecoin’s network participants. 

@CryptoKaleo, a crypto analyst and trader, has predicted that Dogecoin price could hit the target of $0.24. The analyst believes that the memecoin has bullish potential. 

FXStreet analysts believe Dogecoin could form a dead-cat bounce before a fatal crash to $0.09.
