Once again, the billionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, has made another supportive tweet for his favorite cryptocurrency, Dogecoin (DOGE).

The billionaire made this known by responding to a question on Twitter, whether he wants the Dogecoin cryptocurrency to be listed on the exchange. He responded with a “yes,” agreeing with the comment that Dogecoin listing on Coinbase will make the cryptocurrency more accessible to many people.

The US exchange supports lots of cryptocurrencies, including DeFi tokens like SKALE (SKL), Polygon (MATIC), and SushiSwap (SUSHI), which were recently listed on Coinbase Pro, precisely on March 10.
