(Bloomberg) — Tesla Inc. CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter again early Saturday to air his views on cryptocurrencies.

Responding to a tweet from Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus, who said he wants people to “actually use it for something”, Musk wrote “Tesla and SpaceX merch, maybe later.” In January, the cryptocurrency with a Shiba Inu meme founded in 2013 surged after Musk said it could be used to buy Tesla merchandise.

Tesla briefly accepted Bitcoin as payment for its vehicles last year, but Musk backed out of the decision three months later due to the token’s energy inefficiencies.
