Elon Musk wants you to help develop Dogecoin

Elon Musk has put out the call for Dogecoin developers.


Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been one of the most outspoken supporters of the ongoing Dogecoin cryptocurrency phenomenon. However, even with Musk's legions of followers, Dogecoin isn't going to shoot itself to the moon. It's going to need some help, so Musk is putting out the call to would-be developers.

On Twitter, Musk referred his followers to GitHub and to the Dogecoin subreddit. He's asking for ideas, though he wasn't specific on what kinds of ideas. The GitHub page does offer some ideas on how to get started and how anybody with any kind of programming experience can get right to work on helping the cause.

Musk's call comes minutes after tweeting, "Spoke with North American Bitcoin miners. They committed to publish current & planned renewable usage & to ask miners WW to do so. Potentially promising."

His backing of Dogecoin has not gone unnoticed by the cryptocurrency community, especially as Tesla stopped accepting Bitcoin for payments.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
