The popular businessman and inventor Elon Musk has said that his favorite cryptocurrency is Dogecoin, a coin that was originally created as a joke. More specifically, he has said the following on his official Twitter account:
"Dogecoin might be my fav cryptocurrency. It’s pretty cool."
Dogecoin might be my fav cryptocurrency. It’s pretty cool.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 2, 2019
Musk made this comment in a poll published on April 1 to find a CEO for the project.
Musk won the vote with 54% of the votes beating Metal Pay CEO Marshall Hayner, Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin and Litecoin creator Charlie Lee.
Dogecoin founder, Jackson Palmer, has "made fun of" Musk by saying that now that he has attracted 4.2 billion in funds, he wants to sell the company. This tuit referred to an unfortunate publication made by Musk on the social network last year that forced the SEC to take action against Tesla.
