Elon Musk’s crypto tweet affected Dogecoin price
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is known for his revolutionary work, as well as his interest in DOGE, the largest meme coin in the cryptocurrency space. Musk often tweets about this altcoin. One of these posts was posted this morning. Musk’s meme refers to the example of “time dilation” depicted in Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi movie Interstellar. The episode, which is stated in the movie as one hour on the landed planet equals seven years on earth, became a meme on Facebook and Reddit a few years later.
This concept of time dilation, central to the plot of the movie, has also become a joke within the cryptocurrency community due to the volatility of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. For example, in early 2021 DOGE saw a nearly 20,000 percent spike in just 90 days, making some people millionaires. It is now trading 75 percent below its all-time high.
DOGE rose from $0.159 to $0.166 after Musk’s tweet. The meme coin, currently ranked eleventh with a market cap of $21.9 billion, is trading at $0.165 at the time of writing.
