Needless to say, Dogecoin’s massive moves that investors have been seeing lately made the digital asset a superstar. Elon Musk continues to pump the coin, and lots of frustrated people could be getting a reason to celebrate in the near future.
It’s been revealed that Coinbase could be adding the digital asset to their platform soon.
CoinDesk just revealed that Coinbase would add meme-based cryptocurrency dogecoin to the U.S. cryptocurrency exchange’s offerings, CEO Brian Armstrong said on the company’s Q1 earnings call.

Elon Musk and Dogecoin
Elon Musk is more than supportive of Dogecoin these days. After he’s been boosting the digital asset for a while now, he created a poll on Twitter, asking followers whether they want Tesla to start accepting Dogecoin.

More than 77% of the people who responded said that they would like this to become a reality.
A follower tweeted this message: “If this happens, then it’s going to get more recognition and acceptance as a payment method. My choice – Why not?”
