Elon Musk has recently changed his Twitter bio to “Former CEO of Dogecoin” and publishing a post which reads ‘Dogecoin rulz’ with a photograph of a dog smoking a cigarette. He also posted a news publication from the Onion which reads “Bitcoin Plunge Reveals Possible Vulnerabilities In Crazy Imaginary Internet Money”.
Is Elon Musk the CEO of Dogecoin?
Of course not and this is just another joke as Elon Musk keeps posting his funny remarks on bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies on his twitter account. The story began on April 1st or the April fools day when Dogecoin posted a poll on their twitter account asking people to vote for the best suitable CEO for Dogecoin which had four choices: Vitalik Buterin, Charlie Lee, Elon Musk and Marshall Hayner. Out of these, Elon Musk was the most voted person with 54% votes.
We have listened to your concerns. We have decided that Dogecoin does need a CEO. Someone who can lead us into the future while maintaining the core values of what we are.
