Coinbase’s e-commerce platform has started accepting Dogecoin (DOGE) payments.
As announced on Twitter this Wednesday, the integration puts DOGE in line with six other cryptocurrencies supported by Coinbase’s e-commerce portal: Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Casg (BCH), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and stablecoins Dai and USD Coin (USDC)

An integration with Coinbase.com enables Coinbase Commerce customers to effortlessly exchange their crypto payments into U.S. dollars, euros, British pounds or USDC without leaving the e-commerce portal. The same integration for Coinbase Prime and Pro accounts should also become available soon.
Just recently, Coinbase Commerce partnered with Sotheby as its payment partner during the auction of Banksy’s iconic protest artwork “Love Is In The Air.” Bidders had the option to use Bitcoin or Ether and Banksy’s artwork eventually got sold for $12.9 million, however whether the final payment was made with crypto was not disclosed.
Dogecoin’s inclusion to the platform will surely add fuel to the resurgent memecoin’s bid for crypto payments.
Days ago, Elon Musk, aka the ‘Dogefather’, got the community of memebased crypto wild as he had changed his profile image on Twitter to one of him earing sunglasses that have a Shiba Inu dog in the reflection.
A few weeks back, Coinbase also announced its desire to start a crypto app store where it will offer third-party developed products.
