'Supply And Demand Is Undefeated': Mark Cuban Celebrates Dallas Mavericks' Dogecoin Merch Sales

NBA owner and entrepreneur Mark Cuban has been an outspoken supporter of cryptocurrencies and NFTs. Cuban shared thoughts on this week's run in meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin, as well as some related sales figures from the Dallas Mavericks.

What Happened: In March, the Dallas Mavericks began accepting Dogecoin DOGE/USD as a form of payment. Cuban tweeted that the Mavericks’ sales in Dogecoin are up over 550% in the past month. The team has sold more than $122,000 in merchandise for Dogecoin since accepting the crypto as a form of payment.

“I do know that supply and demand is undefeated. So it will find its level,” Cuban told CNBC about the rise in the value of Dogecoin.

The Mavericks hit a 24-hour record for merchandise sales in Dogecoin, Cuban shared on Twitter.

“Doge keeps going up, but our pricing at dallasmavs.shop stays the same,” Cuban said.

Why It’s Important: Cuban has supported Dogecoin while also acknowledging that the cryptocurrency was meant as a joke.

“If I had to choose between buying a lottery ticket and #Dogecoin…I would buy #Dogecoin,” Cuban tweeted in February.

Cuban said he didn’t want to be asked about choosing Dogecoin over anything else though.

The NBA owner also bought “a few dollars worth” of Dogecoin for his 11-year-old son in February.

Cuban has some confidence that Dogecoin will keep going up or at least won’t fall too much, as the Mavericks plan on holding.
