Glauber Contessoto made the leap in February when he bought five million Dogecoins at about 4 cents each and spent the past weeks witnessing his investment skyrocketing.
He is now claiming that he officially become a Dogecoin millionaire in just 69 days (yes, really) since he placed his money on it. Contessoto reached this milestone on April 15 and believes he is the first Dogecoin millionaire of 2021!
"And like many holders of dogecoin, “a reason why I put my savings into dogecoin is Elon Musk,” who has repeatedly tweeted about the cryptocurrency."https://t.co/6rJxotvE90

The 33-year-old music industry worker’s decision was inspired by the Dogecoin community on Reddit which grew in 2021. He also admitted that he was motivated by Elon Musk, who has emerged as Dogecoin’s most prominent backer.
Recently, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO’s Twitter feed was drowning with memes and advice about investing in the currency, in which he claimed that in February he bought Dogecoin for his son.
