Elon Musk has thrown his weight behind Dogecoin many times and it is not a secret now that he wants to take it to the next level. His tweets about the Shiba Inu face-themed currency, now has a staggering market cap of Rs. 2.1 trillion. The Tesla CEO warned that Bitcoin and Ethereum — the world's two biggest cryptocurrencies — were pursuing a multi-layer transaction system, but their transaction rate was slow and the cost was really high.

Musk’s comment came as a response to a tweet by Dogecoin investor Matt Wallace. "Reminder: The Dogecoin update is coming soon. It will position Doge perfectly to become one of the most used currencies in the world," tweeted Wallace. Replying to the tweet, Musk wrote, "BTC [Bitcoin] and ETH [Ethereum] are pursuing a multilayer transaction system, but base layer transaction rate is slow and transaction cost is high."

In recent times, Doge is maximizing base layer transaction rate and minimizing transaction cost with exchanges. Following an active presence and explanation of various aspects of Dogecoin by Musk, the Cryptocurrency token which was dipped nearly 10 percent has gained eight percent gain.
