BitPay, a crypto payments company, just added Dogecoin (DOGE) to its list of accepted coins alongside Coinflip, a crypto ATM operator, that has lent its support to Dogecoin (DOGE) too. BitPay has decided to partner with Dallas Mavericks being the first merchant to sign on to accept it as payment. Meanwhile, Coinflip has announced Dogecoin (DOGE) is available for purchase at its 1,800 crypto ATMs in the United States.
BitPay to Accept Dogecoin Partners with Dallas Mavericks
Dallas Mavericks is the second NBA team that accepted Bitcoin as a payment method for game tickets and merchandise for almost two years. The team has now partnered with BitPay to accept Dogecoin (DOGE) as a payment.
Like Bitcoin, Dogecoin transactions will be done through the crypto payment processor, BitPay.
The owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban, commented:
“The Mavericks have decided to accept dogecoin as payment for Mavs tickets and merchandise for one very important, earth-shattering reason because we can. We have chosen to do so because sometimes in business you have to do things that are fun, engaging, and hopefully generate a lot of PR.”
Coinflip ATM Adds Dogecoin Support
Major crypto ATM network, Coinflip announced this week that Dogecoin (DOGE) has now been listed on its 1,800-terminal network. Coinflip is the leading Bitcoin ATM provider in the United States.

Dogecoin was started as an internet meme and has grown to a near $10 billion market cap in recent months. Despite the cryptocurrency’s volatility, DOGE has had a steady climb in recent months. It’s up from 825.24% year-to-date.
The coin has been pumped many times due to support from celebrities such as Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, Snoop Dogg, Gene Simmons, and Kevin Jonas.
