Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson says Dogecoin should become a Cardano sidechain and is willing to help the DOGE migrate free of charge to the ADA network.
Charles Hoskinson made this statement in response to a tweet asking about what would happen to Dogecoin after Elon Musk bought Twitter.
According to Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson, there is a possibility that DOGE will merge with Twitter. When asked whether Dogecoin would be converted to a proof-of-stake network, he said:
“(Dogecoin) should be a Cardano sidechain. I’d do the migration for free. Hell, I’d even add smart contracts.”
This statement aligns with his earlier views that Cardano will be the network of blockchains with several sidechains connecting to it.
Speculation Over Dogecoin After Elon Musk Buys Twitter
Elon Musk was largely responsible for the rise of Dogecoin price after promoting it in several tweets. He also made it a means of exchange for Tesla’s merchandise.
Before buying Twitter, there were reports that Elon Musk planned to support the integration of Dogecoin on the social media platform. Some rumors on Reddit even talked about using DOGE for payments on Twitter, like Elon Musk is already doing for Tesla merchandise. Speculation around a potential integration rises with his acquisition of the firm.
Although Tesla CEO Elon Musk has already made a few changes to Twitter, he is yet to announce his actual plans for the social media platform.
Tech blogger Jane Manchun Wong also claimed that Twitter is working on a prototype wallet that supports crypto deposits and withdrawals.
