Rapper Snoop Dogg tagged Elon Musk, DOGE’s greatest lover, to congratulate him on “International 420 Days” on April 20th: an informal holiday for marijuana smokers and Doge Day.
Rapper Snoop Dogg Congratulate Elon Musk on DOGE Day
The rapper posted a music video on YouTube called “Snoop Dogg 420 DogeCoin Video” that features Shiba-Inu (the dog in the original Doge meme).
On April 20, Snoop Dogg tweeted:
Ooohwee! @elonmusk got me a fly ass spacesuit 4 the trip 2 the moon. 2 infinity n beyond.
At the time of going to press, Dogecoin ranks sixth on CoinMarketCap with a transaction price of $0.3314. As reported on Monday, April 19, the token rose to a record high of $0.44.
Dogecoin is mainly powered by Elon Musk’s tweets. However, earlier this week, DOGE payments were integrated by several large companies, which also contributed to the Dogecoin price surge.
Newegg Added DOGE as Payment Through BitPay
Newegg announced on Tuesday that the company has added this option through its crypto payment platform BitPay.
The company announced that this new feature kicked off with Doge Day – the community crypto holiday promoted by Doge’s supporters, will be celebrated on April 20th. According to online reports, Dogecoin supporters are clearly hoping DOGE hits $1 today.
Andrew Choi, Newegg’s senior brand manager, said the growth momentum in the cryptocurrency is “undeniable”. He pointed out, “The recent surge in Dogecoin value underscores the need to make it easier for customers to make purchases with this popular cryptocurrency.”
