Dogecoin received popularity and adoption only recently, despite existing in the market for longer than most popular cryptocurrencies. Over the last couple of years, DOGE caught the eye of GenZ, millennials, and anyone interested in crypto. Elon Musk, one of the wealthiest in the world, became a cheerleader and contributed vastly to spiking the adoption rate of DOGE. After making its presence felt in the market, DOGE was stuck in terms of value. Musk remained an ardent supporter of the asset and was now being questioned about its price. Is it fair?

Billy Markus, who also goes by Shibetoshi Nakamoto, took to Twitter and called out the recent lawsuit. He noted how the entire crypto market, the stock market, and the housing market, including the monetary system itself, might be a pyramid scheme if Dogecoin was one.

Several community members shared their opinion about the whole event. Some focused on the asset’s price, unable to hit the $1 milestone; others were optimistic about Musk’s support of Dogecoin. Yet, the community expressed confusion suggesting that Musk wouldn’t want to be associated with the token anymore.

As expected, Musk stood his ground and persisted in his support for the OG meme crypto. He took to Twitter to affirm the same,

The community was relieved seeing this, and Dogecoin noted nearly a 6% hike in its value. DOGE was changing hands at $0.0585 at press time.
