Mark Cuban decided to accept Dogecoin as a payment option for fans of his NBA franchise

In the wake of saying a month ago that the joke cryptocurrency “has no inherent worth,” the tycoon proprietor of the Dallas Mavericks said Thursday he has chosen to acknowledge Dogecoin as an installment alternative for aficionados of his NBA franchise.

“The Mavericks have chosen to acknowledge Dogecoin as installment for Mavs tickets and product for one vital, weighty explanation, since we can!” Cuban said in a press release.

“We have decided to do so in light of the fact that occasionally in business you need to do things that are fun, connecting with and ideally create a ton of PR,” Cuban added. “So we will take Dogecoin, today, tomorrow and potentially perpetually more.”

Dogecoin, a currency that was dispatched in 2013 as an exacting joke about a canine image by programmers, is extraordinary for youngsters needing to find out about account, Cuban has said.

“Dogecoin is not exactly a dime. You can purchase $1 worth or $10 worth, and have a great time watching it throughout the day,” Cuban told Forbes in January. He said he got some for his child and they “heads up and examine all its value developments and why they happen. It’s fun and instructive for him.”

“Gotten some Dogecoin for lil X, so he can be a little child hodler,” Musk tweeted.

As of early afternoon Thursday, Dogecoin was esteemed at a little more than 5 pennies. That is versus Bitcoin, the daddy of all cryptos which has been drifting around a valuation of $50,000 lately.
