The electric vehicle company started accepting the cryptocurrency in January, reports Teslarati.

Currently, SpaceX's merchandise shop still only accepts credit card payments.

Shop items are also only listed in dollars by default in the US, and no cryptocurrency conversions or prices are available for any items in the shop, the report said.
