One user hinted at Elon’s affection for Dogecoin and said, “Idk Elon, I have got to say Dogecoin is the ultimate currency.”

Many users also commented that the tweet is derived from one of the dialogues of the 2011 sci-fi In Time, starring Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake.
Elon’s Twitter handle and the tweets on it are an interesting phenomenon. His tweets have been very influential on the cryptocurrency rates in the past. For example, Bitcoin’s value once sky-rocketed when Elon stated that people can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin.
He recently volleyed a tart tweet at Amazon founder Jeff Bezos where he said that filing lawsuits against competitors is Bezos’ full-time job.

The tweet was in the wake of Amazon requesting FCC to dismiss Starlink Generation 2 amendment.
Earlier, Elon stressed the fact that while cryptocurrency was indeed the future, one had to be careful with their money.
In an interview with TMZ, at a public signing, Elon mentioned that Dogecoin cryptocurrency may be the future. In the interview, he noted that “There is a good chance that crypto is the future currency of the world. Then the question is which won is it going to be? It could be multiple,” he said.
He then explained the origins of how Dogecoin was invented as a joke, essentially to make fun of cryptocurrency, and that’s the irony, explained Teslaman. “That the currency that began as a joke, becomes the real currency.”
In the video, he did add that, “Don’t invest your life savings into cryptocurrency. That’s unwise.”
