Elon Musk's Loop tunnel transportation network in Las Vegas has started accepting payments for Dogecoin trips, according to CNBC. The Boring Company, a tunnel construction company, introduced a new payment method the day after the opening of the fourth station.
The Loop transport system according to the project should expand to more than 50 stations. To buy a ticket, passengers will be able to scan a QR code at the station, one trip will cost 1.5 USD, and day passes - 2.5 USD, the article says.
Trips through the tunnel system are made by Tesla cars at a speed of about 56 km/h, which is much slower than planned by the company's founder Elon Musk. According to his plan, the speed of movement could be about 240 km/h. The Boring Company is considering increasing the speed in the future.
