Just hours after the announcement of his new perfume, hundreds and thousands of the product were immediately sold. With each bottle costing around $100, it’s been said that the billionaire has already made a revenue of around $2 million dollars within the past 2 days.
I was awake at 12 A.M when Elon Musk tweeted about a new perfume from his Boring company.
I clicked and it was $100 a bottle.

So far, it’s not known yet how many of these bottles were bought using cryptocurrencies, but many in the community, especially SHIB & DOGE investors have expressed enthusiasm of Musks inclusivity in adopting crypto payments.
This isn’t the first time Musk has added crypto payment options, earlier this year he also allowed people to start buying TESLA and SpaceX merchandise using cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Dogecoin too.
