Tesla Inc Played A Big Role In The Growth of Dogecoin

The growth of Dogecoin is traced back to May when CEO Elon Musk announced that Tesla, an electric vehicle company, would start accepting Dogecoin as a mode of payment. Musk has been a big promoter of Dogecoin, supporting Dogecoin as a better medium of exchange than Bitcoin. He stated that bitcoin’s low transaction volume and high fees make it more of a solid store of value than a sustainable medium of exchange. The number of people and corporations using Dogecoin as a means of payment has increased since Elon Musk stated that Dogecoin can handle larger volumes per day with low fees. 

Dogecoin has seen a boost in adoption in the past months and according to Elon Musk, the meme coin will rise above others in payment.
