Dogecoin Payment For Blue Check Marks On Twitter?
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and now Twitter, has been criticised for suggesting that influential Twitter users pay for their blue check marks.
Musk has suggested that verified users should pay a monthly fee of $5 to $20 to get the blue ticks on their handles.
But Musk's announcements and his purchase of Twitter have all caused the price of dogecoin (DOGE) to go up .
Since he took control of the company, Musk has been dropping hints about the potential incorporation of DOGE.
He tweeted a picture of a dog with a Twitter logo wrapped around it and a picture of a Twitter logo on a Halloween pumpkin with a winking face emoji on October 31.
"Elon is out here telling everyone he's going to make DOGE the primary cryptocurrency on Twitter," stated
Gokhshtein started the blockchain media company Gokhshtein Media. Everywhere, the price of Dogecoin is going up.
Earlier this year, when Musk was Twitter's biggest shareholder, he said that anyone who signs up for Twitter Blue might be able to pay for it with DOGE.
Twitter Blue has only been released in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand so far. It gives users "exclusive access to premium features."
