SpaceX CEO and Dogecoin enthusiast Elon Musk announced Tuesday that the company is targeting April 20 for a test flight of its Starship rocket.

It just so happens that April 20 (4/20) is celebrated by the Dogecoin community as “Doge Day”.

April 20 was declared Ducal Day by the Doge community in 2021 with the aim of driving the value of the coin to new highs. April 2021 was when Doge spiked to fresh highs of around $0.30, before rising to $0.70 in early May.
“The team is working day and night on many issues. Maybe 4/20, maybe not,” Musk tweeted about the launch on Tuesday. The release was originally scheduled for April 17 before Musk tweeted on a frozen “pressure valve”, delaying takeoff.
Some in the Dogecoin community, however, think this is part of Musk’s “master plan” to launch a Doge Day rocket.

“Launch of the largest rocket on the planet, delayed for the sake of memes, tweeted Dogecoin graphic designer DogeDesigner on Monday “All hail the meme lord.”
Dogecoin Foundation member Marshall Hayner also posted a simple “420”, possibly referring to Doge Day.
In 2021, SpaceX helped plan a Dogecoin-funded rocket launch to the moon, farther from Earth’s surface than any other CubeSat ever reached. The mission was named “DOGE-1”.
