The reason for all the selling that took place shortly after Musk’s SNL appearance was that the Dogecoin community expected something a lot better than hearing Musk say that Dogecoin is a hustle.

To be clear, here are some other things that Musk said about Dogecoin when asked during the “Weekend Update” segment of the show to explain what Dogecoin is:

  • It started as a joke based on an internet meme
  • It was created in 2013 and has a circulating supply of 117 billion coins, of which 113 billion have already been minted
  • It’s a digital currency
  • About as real” as a one-dollar note
  • It’s the future of currency
  • It’s an unstoppable financial vehicle that’s going to take over the world
  • It’s a cryptocurrency you can trade for conventional money

Unfortunately, after saying all of the above, when asked if Dogecoin is essentially a hustle, he agreed that it was.

As for the wider crypto community, one person that seemed to have enjoyed Musk’s comments about Dogecoin is Pomp:

LMAO Elon said dogecoin is just as real as the dollar ???
