Currently, the Dogecoin price is around $0.08. Its market cap stands at above $11 billion. It is the largest meme coin and the 10th largest cryptocurrency in general.
Elon Musk talked about Dogecoin and cryptos before. He said in March that he owns Bitcoin, Eth, and DOGE adding that he wouldn't sell the cryptos.
Tesla CEO finds it's better to own assets like a home or stock in companies that make new good products than dollars at the times of high inflation.
Currently, the total crypto market cap stands at about $1.2 trillion. Bitcoin trades at $30,500 and Ether at $1,900.
