Elon Musk, the world’s wealthiest man, has a net worth of approximately 209 billion dollars. This equates to 861 billion Dogecoins.
While Elon Musk hopes that this money will be enough to eventually extend human life to Mars, some in the DOGE community envision DOGE becoming the currency on the red planet.

Matt Wallace, a Dogecoin YouTuber, has gone to the trouble of converting Elon Musk’s fortune into DOGE. According to Wallace’s tweet, the USD net worth is $209.4 billion, and the equivalent in the most popular meme cryptocurrency is approximately 861 billion DOGE (at the current exchange rate, that’s $205.9 billion in DOGE).
This is more than Warren Buffett’s ($101.6 billion) and Bill Gates’ ($132.4 billion) combined net worth, according to the YouTuber.
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk responded that he hopes his current fortune is sufficient to establish a permanent colony on Mars. He is thought to be one of the world’s largest Dogecoin holders, and Musk has recently admitted that he does own DOGE. The value of the meme coin he owns, however, has not been disclosed.
Elon Musk recently sent Amazon founder Jeff Bezos a silver medal emoji with a 2 on it on Twitter, mocking Bezos’ fortune in comparison to Musk’s – $192.2 billion versus $205.9 billion.

Some Dogecoin supporters in the comment thread speculated that DOGE could one day become an official currency on Mars.
DOGE is important to Musk, and he wants it to grow.
As previously reported by ULTCOIN365, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has emphasized the importance of DOGE fee reductions and has been working with the Dogecoin team on it.
Earlier this week, he backed DOGE co-founder Billy Markus’s tweet, in which the latter urged Dogecoin users to run DOGE nodes on their computers.
