Dogecoin Goes to Church as First Miami Presbyterian Now Accepts DOGE Donations


  • Florida’s First Miami Presbyterian Church is now accepting Dogecoin for donations
  • The church started accepting Dogecoin on Easter Monday
  • Elon Musk’s bid for Twitter has brought attention to DOGE as he had suggested it can be used as a payment option on the social media platform to access a potential subscription service

Adoption of the popular meme-coin of Dogecoin continues to gather pace, with Florida’s First Miami Presbyterian Church now accepting donations in DOGE. The development in Dogecoin adoption was announced via Twitter by Reverend Doctor Christopher Benet in response to a tweet by Elon Musk wishing everyone a Happy Easter.

First Miami Presbyterian Church Has a History of Embracing Technology

In his response to Elon’s Easter message, Reverend Doctor Christopher Benet of First Miami Presbyterian Church tweeted that Dogecoin donations would be accepted at the church beginning April 18th, which was Easter Monday. He also shared pictures of himself at the pulpit in front of a digital banner with the Dogecoin logo announcing the launch of DOGE donations.

The First Miami Presbyterian Church has a history of embracing technology as it has both in-person and online services every Sunday at 11 am ET. Furthermore, past Sunday sermons and scripture readings have been uploaded on the church’s website for anyone who would like to listen to the word of God.

Dogecoin Could Become a Payment Option on Twitter if Elon Musk’s Bid is Successful

Recently, Dogecoin has made news headlines due to Elon Musk suggesting that DOGE could become a payment option on Twitter once his bid to take it private is successful. Elon had hinted that Twitter Blue – a possible subscription service for those willing to pay for exclusive content and verification – could potentially have an option to pay in DOGE.

Elon further explained that Twitter Blue would be priced at roughly $3 per month and discounted to $2 per month if paid for using an annual subscription. Furthermore, the service will feature no ads, and pricing ‘should be proportionate to affordability and in local currency.’
