Dogecoin has, consequently, been experiencing something of a heyday.
On Monday, February 8, DOGE prices spiked by 31 percent after Mr Musk plugged the token in a one-minute video shared to Twitter.
And as of Wednesday at 5.17pm GMT, the token is trading for £0.053 ($0.074044) – up by four percent on the last 24 hours, according to Coindesk data.
To make matters even more bizarre, Mr Musk tweeted today he has bought Dogecoin for his son X Æ A-Xii – pronounced “Ash” – who is only nine-months-old.
He tweeted: “Bought some Dogecoin for lil X, so he can be a toddler holder.”
