Previous remarks of Elon Musk on Dogecoin

Previously, Elon Musk has stated that dogecoin is the "strongest" cryptocurrency currently in use as a means of trade. On August 14, Musk supported fellow billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban's statement regarding dogecoin. Mark Cuban, a longtime admirer of dogecoin, had stated that it is the greatest cryptocurrency as a means of trade. Following Cuban's remark, Elon Musk came out to declare the same. 

During an interview with CNBC, Cuban stated that the dogecoin community is the strongest in using it as a trade method. The billionaire marketed the coin even harder and praised its benefits. Cuban also added that since allowing dogecoin as payment for items in March, the Dallas Mavericks, an NBA club owned by him, has seen significant sales. "I've been saying this for a while," Tesla CEO Elon Musk responded to Cuban's claims on Twitter. Musk's backing for the coin was reaffirmed in the tweet. 

Musk had previously stated that the coin's increase in value over the previous year had pleased him. On the other hand, the cryptocurrency community has been dubious of Musk and Cuban's vision for dogecoin; they consider it to be highly volatile and more difficult to use than other cryptocurrencies.
