Ellen DeGeneres surprised her audience – approximately one million viewers – and explicitly showed her interest in learning more about Dogecoin with none other than Mark Cuban.
Cuban, the well known billionaire, owner of Dallas Mavericks, crypto investor, media proprietor, and tv personality, is openly influencing different popular personalities into adopting Dogecoin.
Only last month the Dallas Mavericks’ merchandise was made available for purchase with the meme-based crypto currency.
He was interviewed via an online connection on Ellen’s talk show, and explained that Dogecoin started as a joke but attracted investors’ interest gaining value to become a solid digital currency to be taken seriously.
Mark Cuban is Boosting Interest in Dogecoin
Cuban highlighted the successful raise in sales the basketball team’s store experienced and suggested Ellen should try to implement the same on The Ellen Shop to boost sales.
The Dallas Mavericks’ store increased sales by 550% since they started to accept the DOGE token a month ago.
DeGeneres is not a stranger to the crypto universe, already owner of the ‘woman with a stick’ token, her producers launched it to raise money for the charity NGO World Central Kitchen.
Cuban’s enthusiastic speech suggested that DOGE could hit the iconic value of one dollar if DM’s merchandise continues to grow after accepting the token.
From its time of announcement in March as of April 13th, Dallas Mavericks merchandise sold with DOGE represented an operation worth of approximately $32,700 US dollars, and counting.
The Rise of Dogecoin Continues
The billionaire strongly believes investing in Dogecoin is also an excellent opportunity of learning and understanding crypto currencies for beginners.
Dogecoin has risen more than 14 thousand times since its rally began, and with the support of people like Mark Cuban and Elon Musk, that rally may continue.
Even if a small fraction of DeGeneres’ viewers showed interest in investing in Dogecoin, the price could rise significantly. What started as a “joke” is moving to a more and more serious level in the crypto markets.
