The two billionaires rally the Dogecoin after calling it the “strongest” cryptocurrency in terms of being a medium of exchange.
Voicing Their Opinions
We all have a reason why we believe one cryptocurrency is better than the other. Some of them are logical and based on numbers and statistics while others tend to be triggered by emotion. Dogecoin for example is one that people love to have a strong opinion about but no matter what it is, it rarely has the same effect on the world as when Mark Cuban or Elon Musk voice theirs.
In an interview with CNBC on Friday, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks firmly stated that when it comes to paying for goods and services, dogecoin is at the top of the list.
The Dogefather Has Spoken
As the Shark Tank legend isn’t the only one driving the doge train, Tesla CEO Elon Musk made sure that all of his almost 54 million Twitter followers heard his own take on the subject.
Replying to Cuban’s comment made on CNBC, Musk tweeted in agreement that “I’ve been saying this for a while.”
His support of the Dogecoin shouldn’t come as a surprise since Musk is jokingly known as the Dogefather.
People’s Way to Pay
Reaching out to his own 8,5 million Twitter followers, Mark Cuban released a few tweets of his own, making sure to back up his own claim with the help of his own business statistics.
“ Where we allow people to pay in ANY crypto, 95% of the sales are in DOGE. Customers CHOOSE to use DOGE. We can argue everything and anything re BTC, but right now DOGE is the people’s way to pay.”
For those of you who are frequent visitors of our site, you might recall reading about how Cuban convinced Ellen Degeneres that accepting Doge in her shop was the only way to go.
Special Doge Offers Coming Up
The NBA owner was not done promoting the Shiba Inu coin and promised Dallas Maverick fans to keep an eye out for a special announcement. Calling it a summer merch sale with special pricing for those who pay with dogecoin.
Considering that Mark Cuban doesn’t mess around when it comes to business, this one might be worth looking out for.
A 12% Price Spike
Did the comment made on CNBC and the following tweet from Elon Musk have any effect on the price? Surprise, surprise, the doge jumped a nice 12% up to $0.33.
There is a strong push at the moment and even a trending hashtag with the goal to drive the price all the way up to a solid $1. It seems to be a matter of when rather than if, so let’s see what happens!
