DOGE as “valid payment mechanism”
Before his conversation about the ADA with Charles Hoskinson, Mark Cuban had been busy tweeting about DOGE. When asked what the point was behind the meme-inspired altcoin when it was inflationary, Cuban explained:
“Doge has a ‘deterministic inflation’, which means that the amount of inflation is defined. There is no uncertainty as to the amount created and its percentage of inflation, which could allow it to grow as a valid payment mechanism. The question is whether a sufficient number of people will use it like this ”.
