Dogecoin up 20% on Musk and Cuban endorsement

Dogecoin which many have labelled a “meme” cryptocurrency, today rose by close to 20%, as a result of tweets from Elon Musk and Mark Cuban.

The value rocketed on Wednesday as Elon Musk tweeted, “the DogeFather”, which was followed by a more detailed tweet from Cuban.

Cuban who is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks tweeted that, “Because Doge is the one coin that people actually use for transactions.  We take many others via @BitPay . But people spend their Doge and that means more businesses will start taking it”.
