Elon Musk Backs Dogecoin Upgrade, Claiming It Could Outperform Other Coins 'Hands Down'...

No comments

Musk, apparently browsing Dogecoin chatter on Twitter saw one user say the upgrade "helps secure the network and lower the transaction fees" triggering a response from Musk, saying he sees this as "important".

The thread continued to outline how the dogecoin upgrade will improve the network, saying there's currently only 205 computers "running the newest update" and "more nodes need to upgrade."

In another recent reply to another tweet about Dogecoin getting an upgrade, Musk shared his view on what that upgrade would do "There is merit to doge maximizing base layer transaction rate and minimizing transaction cost with exchanges acting as the de facto secondary layer"

The tweet he was replying to stated that this "will position doge perfectly to become one of the most used currencies in the world."

The end result, according to Musk "Doge speeds up block time 10X, increases block size 10X & drops fee 100X. Then it wins hands down."

Considering Musk once polled the question 'Do you want Tesla to accept Doge?' - it's not out of the realm of possibilities that once a Dogecoin upgrade was complete, this is how he would show his approval.   

Remember, it was Tesla accepting Bitcoin that set off Bitcoin's biggest bull run of this year - what effect would this have on the world's biggest memecoin? 

There's a growing group of people set on turning a coin that started as a joke into a legitimate cryptocurrency - at what point does it cross over, and 'memecoin' is no longer an accurate label?
