Mark Cuban's Dallas Mavericks will accept Dogecoin
Mark Cuban announced on Thursday that dogecoin can be used to pay online for tickets and merchandise. This could make dogecoin a real player in the market. "I own some dogecoin, let's see what happens from here."
Mark Cuban statement release:
The Mavericks have decided to accept Dogecoin as payment for Mavs tickets and merchandise for one very important, earth shattering reason, because we can! Because we can, we have chosen to do so. We have chosen to do so because sometimes in business you have to do things that are fun, engaging and hopefully generate a lot of PR. So we will take Dogecoin, today, tomorrow and possibly forever more. For those of you who would like to learn more about Dogecoin we strongly encourage you to talk to your teenagers who are on TikTok and ask them about it. They will be able to explain it all to you”
Don't forget that Dogecoin was engineered as a joke back in 2013.
"Dogecoin, which was created based on technology similar to bitcoin, wasn’t necessarily intended to be used as a means of payment but its value may reside more in the community around it and growing adoption by users." source: market watch
