It appears that Elon Musk, the richest person on the planet, is dead serious about his obsession with meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE).
After days of non-stop DOGE memes, Musk now talks about Dogecoin’s technical viability in a more serious tone. In a recent tweet, he took a shot at Bitcoin’s presumably deflationary monetary policy to make a case for the Shiba Inu-inspired crypto:

Doge appears to be inflationary, but is not meaningfully so (fixed # of coins per unit time), whereas BTC is arguably deflationary to a fault.    

He also notes that Dogecoin is “a few orders of magnitude faster” than the Big Daddy of crypto.

Dogecoin is back in the top 10

It was a hair’s breadth away from beating its previous all-time high of $0.0875 that was set after the cryptocurrency soared over 1,100 percent in just one day.   

The ultimate meme coin is now above Stellar (XLM) and Rover Ver-backed Bitcoin Cash (BCH).    

Dogecoin’s revival is undoubtedly a testament to Elon Musk’s Twitter power. The centibillionaire at the helm of Tesla and SpaceX made a return to Twitter to tweet about DOGE last week, which sent the token through the roof.
