Elon Musk has been promoting Dogecoin on Twitter again. His legal team is trying to dismiss the lawsuit that was filed against him accusing him of using influence to increase and decrease the value of the cryptocurrency to his benefit.
Musk wants to give away a million coins. This is not a free gift.
The New Yorker, for example, has reported that Musk's dad, Errol Musk purchased shares in a South African emerald mining company when Elon Musk was a young child.
In an interview with Insider in 2018, Errol Musk said that his family had "so many dollars at times that we couldn't close our safe."
Elon Errol, Errol's son, insists that these allegations are false, and has offered to pay anyone with proof.
I'll pay one million Dogecoins for proof that this mine exists!

A Twitter account of a Dogecoin and Elon fan wrote: "Elon Musk has never owned an Emerald mine." "An open invitation to all media outlets that are spreading false information. Send me proof and I'll take your doge."
Musk responded, naturally, by offering 1,000,000 Dogecoins to anyone who could prove it.
On Friday afternoon this would be just over $85,000.
Elon's obsession with the coin changed last week, when he replaced Twitter's infamous Blue Bird symbol with a photo showing the Doge meme - a Shiba Inu.
Musk has not revealed when he changed the bird symbol, but Twitter displayed its normal icon on Friday afternoon.
