Billionaire tech investor and the Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is predicting the price of Dogecoin will eventually hit $1, via Cointelegraph.

On Saturday, Cuban said customers had used more than 20,000 Dogecoin – roughly $1,018 at the time of publication – in transactions for the Mavericks, claiming the franchise was now “the largest Dogecoin merchant in the world.”

Cuban predicted that if basketball fans were to purchase 6,556,000,000 DOGE worth of Mavericks merchandise, the price of the token would “definitely hit $1.”
