In an article in Time Magazine on Monday, after being awarded the magazine’s Person of the Year for 2021, Musk also spoke about the meme-inspired coin.

‘Fundamentally, Bitcoin is not a good substitute for (a) transactional currency. Even though it was created as a silly joke, Dogecoin is better suited for transactions’. He added that while Bitcoin was more suitable as a store of value, dogecoin ‘encourages people to spend, rather than hoard as a store of value’.
