Dogecoin on the Cusp of Implementing Elon Musk-Supported Upgrade

Dogecoin Core 1.14.5, a new minor version release that finalizes the much-hyped fee reduction for all network participants, is almost finished, according to the most recent update from the team of developers.

Dogecoin Core 1.14.5 has been tagged ("gone gold", but for open source), and we're running the Gitian build process for it now. It's not done until we verify the build is good, but sooooon https://t.co/s3NolYxbI1— Dogecoin Developers (@dogecoin_devs) November 7, 2021

With the new upgrade, the recommended block inclusion fee is set at 0.01 DOGE (roughly $0.002) per kilobyte in the core wallet.While the network started supporting low fees with 1.14.4, it will now adopt them by default, which means that third-party wallets of the likes of Tesla CEO Elon Musk have voiced their support for reducing Dogecoin's transaction fees on multiple occasions.In his opinion, such an improvement would help to turn Dogecoin into a viable means of payment.

Super important for Doge fees to drop to make things like buying movie tix viable— Lorde Edge (@elonmusk) September 22, 2021
