A student of Austrian Economics, Kevin found Bitcoin in 2011 and has been an evangelist ever since. His interests lie in Bitcoin security, open-source systems, network effects and the intersection between economics and cryptography.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has shared a dogecoin video on Twitter in a conversation about bitcoin mining on April 1. He says, “this video explains everything.”
Tesla and Spacex CEO Elon Musk shared a video about the meme cryptocurrency dogecoin (DOGE) on April 1 in reply to a tweet about bitcoin by Brett Winton, Ark Invest’s director of research.
In the tweet, Winton quoted a conversation about bitcoin mining where he seems to be having difficulty explaining to his mom on April Fools’ Day that bitcoin miners are computers. Replying with a meme video titled “Ð is for Ðogecoin” on the same day, Musk wrote: “Just show her this video explains everything.”
The short video features the DOGE mascot on a journey to the moon. The shiba inu on a rocket passed bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies as the price of DOGE soared.
Winton replied to Musk: “A meme too far for her I’m afraid. (On the other hand, my 5-year-old is now frantically agitating to set up a Coinbase account).”
Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus commented on Musk’s tweet, stating that the meme video is the “best cryptocurrency video in history.”
Musk shared this particular video on Twitter before, including on Feb. 7 last year when he tweeted: “Ð is for Ðogecoin! Instructional video.”
The DOGE community is ecstatic that Musk tweeted about their favorite cryptocurrency again. They have long called the Tesla CEO “the Dogefather” and appreciated him sending the price of dogecoin upward with his tweets.
Dogecoin, the 12th largest cryptocurrency by market cap, is trading at $0.1431 per coin at the time of writing, based on data from Bitcoin.com Markets. However, Musk’s latest DOGE tweet did not move the market much. The meme coin was hovering around $0.1420 when he tweeted.
Musk confirmed in March that he owns bitcoin, ether, and dogecoin, emphasizing that he will not sell them. The Tesla boss believes that dogecoin is the people’s crypto and DOGE is the best cryptocurrency for transactions. In contrast, he sees bitcoin as a store of value. His electric car company also accepts DOGE for some merchandise.
Below is the video about DOGE shared by Elon Musk.
