Favorite Cryptocurrency of Musk
As Musk is known for sharing memes over his social media account, he has talked about Dogecoin (DOGE) several times over the last year. “Dogecoin might be my fav cryptocurrency. It’s pretty cool,” SpaceX said in April 2019.
Musk has been remained a supporter of cryptocurrency for a long time and even became the speaker for Bitcoin when Fed printed money in large amounts in response to Coronavirus. However, he accepted that he only owned 0.25 Bitcoin. He said:
“Pretty much, although massive currency issuance by govt central banks is making Bitcoin Internet money look solid by comparison.”
DTAP Capital founder Dan Tepiero said:
“Not looking like a top in TSLA. In fact, just broke out 7 days ago. At this rate, Elon Musk becomes world’s richest person in a few months. The market is always right. What is it telling us about the future? Net worth now equal to 25% of all Bitcoin. Maybe he buys a few?”
Dogecoin is one of the best performing coins in recent weeks. TikTok coverage and Musk’s interest in the coin are responsible for bullish sentiments towards DOGE.
