- Video of how Snoop Dogg celebrated Doge day
Popular musician Snoop Dogg has been one of the most influential public figures who have gotten behind the meme coin, Dogecoin. The music star continued his unending show of support for the coin on Tuesday, 4/20; a day set aside by Doge proponents to celebrate the meme coin.
The set date, ‘4/20’ is unofficially used to celebrate cannabis day. However, Doge proponents are starting a campaign to commence a celebration of the meme coin on the same date annually. The aim of Doge day this year was to push the coin to $1 which did not materialize however, the coin hit a new ATH on the 20th of April.
Snoop Dogg being a cannabis enthusiast and Dogecoin enthusiast, had the liberty to integrate both entities in his celebration. He celebrated both Dogecoin and cannabis in a video he shared on his verified Twitter platform yesterday. The rapper in the video pictured himself and a Shiba Inu dog (the dog breed that inspired Dogecoin) in a spaceship flying all to space. The ship had inscriptions of weed, and the dog, when it landed in space, was dressed in a cloth with pictures of cannabis.
He thanked his fellow doge proponent, Elon Musk, for the space ship and captioned, “Happy 420.” This is not the first time the musician would display public support for Doge as he has done so severally in the past alongside Elon Musk.
Snoop Dogg deeply rooted in crypto
Outside Doge, Snoop Dogg has firmly planted himself in the crypto space as he was also one of the top celebrities to embrace the booming NFT space. He launched his own digital collectible in collaboration with the digital artist behind the Nyan Cat meme to produce a “Nyan Dogg.”
His NFT was also launched on 4/20. Other similar products launched by the rapper and the same digital artist include Hazy Nyan Cat and Nyan Blunt – each sold for 0.420 ETH in another tribute to 4/20.
