Dogecoin Price Boost: Mark Cuban Gets Huge Support From Doge Co-Founder and Fans
Mark Cuban advertised himself as a very strong supporter of Dogecoin. On April 14, he tweeted a brief sales report about Mavs merchandise sold in Doge. Cuban also said his team would not sell any Dogecoin it received.

Cuban's investment plan gained recognition from the Dogecoin community. According to Bitcoinist, the billionaire was also praised as a high-profile individual pushing for real-world applications on the meme coin. The self-proclaimed "Dogefather" Elon Musk also approved Cuban's initiative.
Another incredible support came from the Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus. Notably, Markus never showed his support for Dogecoin in the last seven years. It took the internet by surprise when he retweeted the Dogemania event.
At the time of writing, Coin Desk listed Dogecoin with a $0.27 price and 0.78 percent increase in the last 24 hours.
