The owner of the Dogecoin dev account “Doge Whisperer” reminded the community of the significance of the recent 1.14.4 Dogecoin upgrade, which was supported by Elon Musk, the world’s major innovator-entrepreneur, centibillioinare, and the most influential DOGE fan.
A total of 763 Doge nodes have been upgraded.
On August 30, Musk tweeted that the new Doge node upgrade was critical, as it would make the network more secure and lead to lower transaction fees in the future.
According to Doge Whisperer’s tweet, 763 nodes have now implemented the upgrade. However, the network requires many more new nodes, according to the tweet.

On September 7, the eighth-ranked Dogecoin fell below the $0.30 level, reaching a low of $.22, while Bitcoin fell below the $50,000 mark. DOGE was last seen at this price level in early August.
Musk mocks the media for turning his tweets into clickbait headlines.
Billy Markus, a Doge co-founder, shared a screenshot of a news headline referencing Elon Musk’s recent tweet about time being the ultimate currency.
The media has turned the tweet into a clickbait title involving Dogecoin, and the coin’s cofounder trolled the news outlet’s attempt to capture the audience’s attention in this manner.
Elon Musk responded with a double ROFL emoji.
