He’s really like a sphinx. Hard to understand his motivations and understand why he does what he does,” Hoskinson postulated. Why does he have this bizarre fetish for Dogecoin? Is that he owns 20% of the supply?”</em></p> <p>However, the Cardano creator didn’t rule out that Musk might simply be fond of Dogecoin because of its furry, four-legged mascot. “Or is it just he just likes the f*****g logo? You just don’t know with a guy like that. That’s the magic of Elon Musk,” Hoskinson opined.  </p><p><span>Advertisement</span><a target="_blank" href="https://zycryp.to/GoogleNews"><img src="https://zycrypto.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/Follow-ZyCrypto-On-Google-News-1.png" alt="Follow ZyCrypto On Google News" /></a>  </p> <p>Elon Musk has been professing his love for DOGE for a couple of years now, with his first post about the OG meme coin dating back to 2019, when he called it his “fav cryptocurrency”. The Tesla/SpaceX CEO’s frequent endorsements and cheering on social media since then have spurred Dogecoin’s ascent, resulting in outsized returns for early investors.</p> <p>As you may recall, he dedicated a segment to DOGE during his appearance on SNL in May 2021, which coincided with the once-joke crypto hitting its all-time high price of 73 cents. Later the same year, the self-avowed Dogecoin evangelist confirmed that he owns DOGE. </p> <p>In March, DOGE rocketed after Musk <a target="_blank" href="https://zycrypto.com/super-bullish-for-doge-elon-musk-hints-at-possibility-of-buying-teslas-with-dogecoin-at-some-point/">suggested </a>that Tesla will, in the future, allow customers to purchase its electric cars with the canine-themed cryptocurrency. Reports also indicate that the eccentric CEO has been <a target="_blank" href="https://zycrypto.com/elon-musk-has-secretly-been-funding-dogecoin-development-report-reveals/">secretly financing the development of Dogecoin</a>.</p> <p>Sadly, the token has shed some 80.2% of its value since the 2021 highs, as per <a target="_blank" href="https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/dogecoin">CoinGecko</a>. Meme coin investors are hoping that DOGE will soon <a target="_blank" href="https://zycrypto.com/dogecoin-surges-13-higher-following-elon-musks-x-payments-revelation/">feature as a permanent payment option</a> on his microblogging platform X, which would propel the crypto higher, perhaps even to the fabled $1.00 threshold.</p> </div>
