Elon Musk signals “maybe more down the road” for Dogecoin after merch
Dogecoin jumped as much as 8% after Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter that he was going to “keep supporting Dogecoin.” He also stated he was buying the meme coin.
Since April 2019, when he tweeted about Dogecoin being his favorite cryptocurrency, Musk has been Dogecoin’s highest-profile cheerleader.
While responding to a tweet by Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus, who said that he wants Dogecoin to have a reason to exist—”something beyond pump and dump.”
Musk wrote, “Tesla and SpaceX merch, maybe more down the road.” In January, Dogecoin rose after Musk stated that it could be used to purchase Tesla merchandise.
“Shibetoshi Nakamoto” also expressed his desire for the community to understand what crypto is and what the crypto market is. To that end, Tesla CEO Elon Musk replied: “More currency-like.”
