Dogecoin has recently seen endorsement from celebrities including the billionaire American corporate heads to Hollywood stars among others. Here is a list of celebrities who have endorsed Dogecoin including Tesla CEO Elon Musk who has been posting funny messages around the cryptocurrency in a series of tweets.

Dogecoin was initially meant to satirise the cryptocurrency hype and the speculative bubble. But the meme-currency has emerged as a serious player on its own with several celebrities hopping on board. It’s hard to decide whether the celebrities are genuinely endorsing the cryptocurrency represented by a classic meme featuring a Shiba Inu dog but every post on social media by them has helped to boost the value of Dogecoin.
