Elon Musk is thought for a couple of issues on this world. Depending on the worth of Tesla’s inventory, he generally holds the title of ‘world’s richest particular person’; he’s also called the Founder of the corporate that made electrical automobiles ‘sexy’. However, in 2021 Musk has added one other title to his resumé: DogeCoin (DOGE) CEO.
Ok, he was joking. All the identical, although, Elon Musk appears to have developed a little bit of an obsession with DogeCoin. The newest examples of this fixation occurred over the weekend when Musk posted a number of DOGE-related tweets.
In one occasion, Twitter person @itsALLrisky requested Musk if he could be in favor of a Coinbase itemizing of DogeCoin. “Hi Elon, I saw a report that Coinbase was used for the Tesla BTC purchase (nice entry btw). Do you think Coinbase should enable dogecoin on their platform? It would enable many folks to easily access DOGE.” Musk merely responded, “Yes!”

“Why Are You So Dogematic, They Ask.”
Musk’s private Twitter web page was lit up with DOGE-related tweets on Sunday.
“Doge day afternoon,” he wrote, together with an “origin” story: “Origin of Doge Day Afternoon: The ancient Romans sacrificed a Dogecoin at the beginning of the Doge Days to appease the rage of Sirius, believing that the star was the cause of the hot, sultry weather.”
Origin of Doge Day Afternoon:
The historical Romans sacrificed a Dogecoin initially of the Doge Days to appease the fad of Sirius, believing that the star was the reason for the recent, sultry climate.

“Ah, you’re a man of culture as well,” wrote person @itsALLRisky in reply. “The Dogan War is a classic.”
“Why are you so dogematic, they ask,” Musk wrote in a separate tweet.
Additionally, he wrote that: “I’m getting a Shiba Inu #resistanceisfutile.”

Historically, Musk’s Attention on DOGE Has Had Major Effects on DogeCoin Markets
Interestingly, Musk’s DOGE-related tweets didn’t appear to have a lot of an impact on the worth of DogeCoin, which has steadily declined over the course of the final 24 hours.
Historically, this has not been the way in which of issues. Throughout the month of February, the worth of DOGE would leap as Musk tweeted about it: memes of himself as Rafiki from the Lion King holding up a Shiba-Inu Simba to the solar; and an ‘instructional’ video about DogeCoin, and presents to purchase out DogeCoin whales.
Each time Musk would do that, even when he was making a joke about DogeCoin, the worth of DOGE would spike. For instance, following a flurry of DOGE-related tweets on February seventh, quite a lot of analysts pointed to Musk because the causative issue behind a 40% DOGE value leap throughout the following 24-hour interval.
Elon musk tweeted about Doge coin, and in lower than an hour it has rose in worth at about 50%. He’s Unarguably the Biggest influencer on this planet.

How Serious Is This?
It has by no means been completely clear how severe Musk is about DogeCoin.
At one level, Musk commented throughout a dialog on social networking app, Clubhouse that: “I occasionally make jokes about Dogecoin, but that is because Doge was made to make fun of crypto assets. The most ironic outcome would be that Dogecoin becomes the currency of earth in the future.”
However, not everyone seems to be completely happy that Musk has been shining such a giant mild on DOGE.
A person on the r/Cryptocurrency Reddit web page, u/Jones9319, mentioned that: “this doge situation is seriously damaging to crypto.”
“Elon Musk literally tweeting ‘Doge’, and it skyrocketing the way it has is just giving more reasons for governments to take legal action against crypto,” u/Jones9319 wrote.
“So many will lose money from this and any credibility Elon Musk has about crypto will be gone. The whole doge thing is funny, sure, but I’m not sure we want mainstream media using it to define crypto as a literal joke.”
