  • Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk has shared some of the most important Dogecoin improvements.
  • He clarified that he does not have anything to do with the Dogecoin Foundation.
  • This could be an interesting time to buy the Dogecoin (DOGE) token.

Dogecoin DOGE/USD was initially created as a “meme” token; however, over time, it has become one of the most popular ways to transfer value.

It has undergone a lot of price fluctuations that heavily rely on social media exposure.

On Sunday, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk made several tweets about cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and the Shiba Inu Token.

Specifically, he said that he would be the first Dogecoin Trillionaire. Additionally, he talked about Dogecoin’s improvements. 

Musk was asked whether or not he had any recent interactions with the Doge Development team. He said that he did not interact with them, and in his own words, said: “Neither Jared, nor me, nor anyone I know has anything to do with this foundation.”.

He tweeted the following: “What matters imo is lowering fees, decreasing block time & increasing block size. A single layer network with exchanges as de facto layer 2 seems like the simplest solution for a medium of exchange.”

Dogecoin’s co-creator, Billy Markus, responded to Musk’s Doge improvement tweet, where he stressed that his option that Dogecoin does not be yet another blockchain that hosts NFTs or other tokens, and that DOGE just being fast, scalable and inexpensive to send is all that it really needs to be.

The Dogecoin Foundation re-launched in August, and its website lists Jared Birchall as one of the four board advisors.  Other board advisors are Markus and Vitalik Buterin.
