KISS bassist Gene Simmons shared on Twitter himself as a “God Of Dogecoin” and fans creator of Dogecoin answer his tweet. Gene Simmons has claimed himself, God, for the Dogecoin cryptocurrency.
Dogecoin is a popular cryptocurrency created by Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer in 2013. He created a payment system as a “joke”, making fun of the wild speculation in cryptocurrencies at the time. All cryptocurrencies are digital currencies that are not under the control of central bank systems. Secured by cryptography, they’re designed to be secure and invulnerable to government interference and counterfeiting. The most well-known instance is Bitcoin which was introduced in 2008 and whose value has increased to $0.30 for each coin at the time of its launch up to $40,000 for each coin in the past week.
Snoop Dogg, the rapper, as well as KISS bassist Gene Simmons, have expressed their support in the “DOG Army “Doge Army” on the weekend with Tesla and SpaceX‘s CEO Elon Musk. In the aftermath, DOGE’s price increased to a new high of 27% since Feb. 7. DOGE is the primary cryptocurrency of Dogecoin that has grown into the most popular cryptocurrency over the past few months.

Also, in February 2022 Gene Simmons interviewed with Bitcoin.com about his thoughts about cryptocurrencies:
“When I was a kid I started reading stuff, the kind of stuff that the other kids did not read. So as you know reading is fundamental and the more information I got, the more questions I had. I learned about capitalism and how it works, how the government prints money. That it was once based on gold, and there lies the value, and then at some point in the past before most of you were born, the dollar was no longer based on gold.
(The dollar) is based on nothing.
“That’s ok if everything works. Then the world continues to somehow base value on dollars. Even the terrorists want to get paid in dollars and not by local wombat coinage – I’m not the expert and I’m not directing or suggesting that anyone get into cryptocurrency, I’m just telling you what I am doing. The more governments that include the United States government, continue to keep printing money which is based on nothing, at some point, you gotta pay the piper. I did a little research about Satoshi and where he came from and what it was. It seems to me that the value of things is determined by people. The value of the real estate is only based on what people say it is. The value of gold is only what people agree on what it is, and even Wall Street and stocks based, you can make your own valuation, but unless people buy the stock, it means nothing. Crypto seems to be a friendly neighbor to that, which is that it has much more roots in people.”
He also added:
“I don’t believe for a second that most people understand what cryptocurrency is, what it is designed to do, but it is immediate and you don’t have to deal with banks— I like that.”
A month later, he also blocked the creator of Dogecoin and Billy Markus said it:
“Gene Simmons blocked me for unknown reasons, may not be part of dogefam anymore, or maybe just doesn’t like me haha”
