Newegg shoppers can now buy graphics cards, gaming monitors, and other popular hardware products using the world’s most popular meme coin. The retailer revealed the new payment option in a press release published yesterday, which confirmed that it had begun accepting Dogecoin payments via bitcoin payment service provider BitPay. Users who hold the inflationary cryptocurrency can simply click “edit” in the payment section on the checkout page and then select BitPay to make their purchases. While the meme coin is already priced at an admirable 0.4172 at the time of this posting, Dogecoin is expected to break through the resistance by leveraging the tremendous hype behind today’s “Doge Day” event.
