"Out of curiosity, I acquired some ASCII hash strings called 'Bitcoin, Ethereum and Doge'. That's it," he said in a Tweet. "As I've said before, don't bet the farm on crypto! True value is building products and providing services to your fellow human beings, not money in any form".
In another Tweet, the 50-year-old SpaceX founder also termed Dogecoin as "people's crypto". Musk said that several people, who are not financial experts, at Tesla and SpaceX own Doge which is why he has decided to support it.
