Investor Ricardo Santiago, became the first person to actually purchase a car solely with Dogecoins.
This purchase took place at Daytona Toyota in Florida today! If you recall, just a few days ago, Daytona Toyota announced that they would be accepting dogecoin as a payment option within their dealership. Today they lived up to their word, as Mr. Santiago was able to buy his dream car!
Mr. Santiago also enjoyed enjoyed the benefits of being the first customer at the dealership to use dogecoin for his purchase. He said:
I was the first to buy on the promotion and got the deal of the century just to be the first customer and show support for this pioneer car dealership (use Dogecoins or fiat currency)- Ricardo Santiago #DaytonaNissan
I know many people were skeptical at first. It seems because of the "meme coin branding" many don't realize you can actually purchase anything with dogecoin, just like any real currency. It's even 10x faster than bitcoin when it comes to executing transactions. The coin may have started as a joke, but it's no longer a joke..it's technology is no joke. It's pretty much a fork of bitcoins core technology, with a few tweaks.
