“Crypto-villan” Elon Musk has been quiet regarding cryptocurrencies in recent weeks. That was until he relapsed today by replying to a tweet from Dogecoin co-founder Billy Marcus.
Dogecoin is best enjoyed when funny
Marcus tweeted that the Dogecoin narrative needs to stay funny, adding that seriousness “ruins its charm.”
“IMO, $DOGE is at its best when it’s funny. Wanting the future world / universe economy to ironically be satirical meme money is a fun story that people can get behind. When people get too serious or militant about it, for me, that ruins its charm. Keep $DOGE fun and absurd,” he said.
He also forwarded a Reddit post he made in 2014, titled “Keep Dogecoin Absurb,” saying a similar thing. Marcus stated that Dogecoin’s appeal comes from having fun and parodying the ridiculousness of cryptocurrency.
Musk responded to Marcus’ message most succinctly, with a simple clicking of beer glasses emoji.
