Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson says Dogecoin should become a Cardano sidechain and is willing to help the meme coin migrate free of charge.
Charles Hoskinson made this statement in response to a tweet asking about what would happen to Dogecoin after Elon Musk bought the social media platform Twitter.
According to Hoskinson, there is a possibility that DOGE will merge with Twitter. When asked whether the meme coin 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 the meme coin 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 application of Dogecoin on the social media platform. 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.
