Head of Tesla and SpaceX, Dogecoin fan and the asset’s most influential supporter, Elon Musk, has taken to Twitter to support the call from a Dogecoin-related Twitter account to spread the new Doge upgrade to as many computers as possible.

The release that was made nine days ago, according to GitHub, prepares the Dogecoin network to reduce fees—the issue that has been subject to heated discussions and arguments in the Doge community for a long while.

The new Doge upgrade prepares the ground for fees reduction

The blog post on GitHub says that, in the new release, various bugs have been fixed and the performance of the network improved in several directions. Now, Dogecoin devs urge all users to implement this upgrade and thus improve the performance of the entire network.

The upgrade can be easily installed over the current 1.14 installation, without having to uninstall it, reindex or redownload. The update is preparing the network for a reduction of fees. It is the first step in a two-stage upgrade that is required to lower Dogecoin fees.
