Elon can’t take Dogecoin to the moon
But because of what happened yesterday with Dogecoin’s price action, the news is heavily contrasting. Although many Dogecoin investors have been expecting price rises because of the long-anticipated guesting of Elon Musk on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live, another thing occurred.
Musk came in a news skit as a crypto expert who can’t explain Dogecoin, calling it a “hustle,” then saying that it will go to the moon. But it didn’t do any good for the prices. Instead, it went down from $0.65 to $0.43. This incident caused a ruckus in social media.
