Elon Musk made Dogecoin grow with the already familiar method today . At 10:35 Moscow time in the comments under one of his last messages on Twitter depicting a rocket in the background of the moon, he left only the word “Doge”.
Over the next half hour, the price of the meme coin rose 45% from $ 0.04 to $ 0.058. Against this background, Dogecoin became the largest cryptocurrency in terms of liquidation of margin positions per hour with a value of $ 19 million.
“Are you sure?” – wrote below the Huobi exchange account. “Most likely the most curious outcome,” Musk replied, referring to his earlier announcement that Dogecoin could become the world’s currency.
Dogecoin experienced a sharp rise last week, hitting new all-time highs above $ 0.08 with a gain of 1,000%. Since then, the rate of the cryptocurrency has corrected, but it still remains several times higher than the previous all-time high, indicating that new holders have joined it.
At the same time, the mention of bitcoin, which he also posted there last week, disappeared from the description of Musk’s profile on Twitter. At the time of publication, this field does not contain any information. On February 2, Musk wrote that he would be leaving Twitter for a while.
Another confirmation of Musk and his companies’ interest in bitcoin is the registration of a SpaceX representative for a MicroStrategy-sponsored conference on cryptocurrencies for executives. Available records indicate that SpaceX’s chief financial officer, Richard Lee, is among the registered members.
Musk himself recently said : “I’m joking about Dogecoin, but it’s just a joke. Dogecoin was meant to be a joke to make fun of cryptocurrencies. But fate loves irony. The most ironic outcome and the funniest outcome is the most likely. The most ironic and funniest outcome for Dogecoin is if it becomes the world’s currency in the future. “
UPD: Musk continues to write about Dogecoin and posted the following image with a “Please” comment:
“Dogecoin is a folk crypt. You don’t need to be gigached to have it, ”he added, referring to another popular meme. “No highs, no lows, just Doge.”
Users note that Musk’s recent messages were posted from a web app, whereas he usually uses an iPhone app.
