The announcement comes just a day after Musk claimed DOGE could work as a better payment system than Bitcoin. Musk made those comments in his TIMES interview where he was named Time Magazine’s Man of the year.
“Fundamentally, bitcoin is not a good substitute for transactional currency, Instead, I suggest dogecoin even though it was created as a joke.”
