From just being used to buy pizzas and other small items, crypto has now become a billion-dollar industry. Crypto has also made many people millionaires in a short span of time. There are also now famous celebrities, who have now started investing in cryptocurrencies.
So, let us see in this article some of the top celebrities who have invested in crypto!
Elon Musk is one of the celebrities who has gained popularity among crypto-investors for his tweets about crypto. Initially, Elon was advocating for bitcoin, but later on, considering environmental concerns, Elon has shifted his support to Dogecoin.
BTC & ETH are pursuing a multilayer transaction system, but base layer transaction rate is slow & transaction cost is high.
There is merit imo to Doge maximizing base layer transaction rate & minimizing transaction cost with exchanges acting as the de facto secondary layer.

In fact, Elon has been a major reason for the spike in the value of Dogecoin. When the above tweet was made by Elon, Doge jumped 10% in value. It was the same case with Bitcoin, when Elon tweeted that Tesla would not accept Bitcoin anymore, it crashed Bitcoin to a considerable extent. Although, Elon has not made it public on the amount of Dogecoins he has in his portfolio. It is clear from his tweets that, he holds a considerable amount of Dogecoins in his portfolio.

The point about DOGE that people miss is that DOGE’s imperfections and simplicity are it’s greatest strengths. You can only use it to do 2 things: Spend It or HODL It. Both are easy to understand. And it’s cheap to buy. Which makes it a community anyone can join and enjoy.
