Dogecoin to Mars? Palantir Co-Founder Joe Lonsdale Thinks So

There's a good chance Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) is going to be around for a while, Palantir Technologies Inc (NYSE:PLTR) co-founder Joe Lonsdale said Thursday on CNBC's "Squawk Box."

If Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) and SpaceX, decides he wants to make Dogecoin a currency on Mars, "I bet you he could do it," Lonsdale said.

Dogecoin grows at 2% per year he said, adding that there's nothing irrational about a slow-growing cryptocurrency.

"I don't think it's as crazy as it sounds," Lonsdale told CNBC. He followed that up by smiling and saying, "Even though it is dog money."
