Dogecoin and Elon Musk
The biggest meme crypto by market cap and the richest man in the world have a long history together.
Several times in recent years, Elon Musk wrote tweets about dogecoin, which he claimed to be ironic at first. However, it later turned out that the Tesla CEO was working with developers of the meme cryptocurrency.
Jokes or not, tweets from Elon Musk were often responsible for the increase in the price of DOGE. The anticipation of the CEO’s participation in the television show Saturday Night Live, in May 2021, led to dogecoin to its all-time high of $0.72.
Just as the rise was intense, the cryptocurrency’s fall was in the same proportion, melting more than 90% in the following year, according to Decrypt.
