Tesla CEO, Elon Musk remained outspoken about Dogecoin, though most of the time he made fun of the cryptocurrency with his tweets, it seems like the demand for the cryptocurrency has increased due to his Dogecoin statements.
“I occasionally make jokes about Dogecoin but that’s because Doge was made to make fun of crypto assets. The most ironic outcome would be that Dogecoin becomes the currency of earth in the future,” Musk said during a conversation on social networking app Clubhouse recently.
In his latest tweet about the cryptocurrency, Elon Musk teased the crypto community by saying that Dogecoin is the people’s crypto.
