Elon Musk Causes Social Media Storm After Promising to Put ‘Literal’ Dogecoin on the Moon

Dogecoin was created in 2013 as a joke after Bitcoin’s success prompted a wave of copycat cryptocurrencies. The cryptocurrency uses a shiba inu dog meme as its logo. Musk is big fan of cryptocurrencies and often tweets humorously about dogecoin. However, one such joked increased the price of the cryptocurrency by 25 percent.

Tech maverick Elon Musk has caused a stir on social media after revealing one of his aims for SpaceX. According to Musk, the company, which pursues a commercial space programme intended to take amateur astronauts to the Moon and eventually Mars, will put a “literal” dogecoin cryptocurrency “on the literal Moon”.
