In the online interview, Contessoto said that he took his time and learned all about DOGE via Reddit.
Without any delay, after knowing all the pros and cons of DOGE, Contessoto invested over $180,000 on February 5. As per him, not his learning alone, he also got motivated by how Tesla CEO Elon Musk has consistently shared a positive tweet about Dogecoin.
A reason why I put my savings into dogecoin is because of Elon Musk… I think the guy is a genius.
Of note, Contessoto invested his $180,000 at the time when DOGE was trading at 4.5 cents. As per him, the Reddit community reactions about Dogecoin also inspired him alongside Elon. He also values and admires how DOGE is represented by Shiba Inu.
Finally, Contessoto said he believes in Dogecoin potential and bullishness even more than what we are seeing now. He also believes that DOGE will build him a “generational wealth”. “I grew up really poor, so this is a huge deal for me,” he remarked.
