Elon Musk and Twitter is not exactly a love story. The billionaire needs to finalize the deal until tomorrow, or otherwise he will have to meet Twitter and its shareholders in court. First it seemed that Musk would take them head on and fight, but after a few weeks it became more likely that he would close the deal. The reason behind this feud is the result of Musk’s due diligence. He believes that Twitter is way more stricken with bots than the company is willing to admit.
Why has this anything to do with Dogecoin and will Musk finally settle the deal by tomorrow?
The former CEO and founder of Twitter Jack Dorsey is maybe one of the biggest proponents of Bitcoin, and before he left the company Dorsey had plans to integrate Bitcoin and payments via the Lightning Network.
This led many people to belief that Musk could do the same for Dogecoin and make it some sort of payment method or increase its visibility otherwise.
With the revival of the Dogecoin Foundation and Musk’s wingman Jared Birchall in the role as an advisor to the Foundation this speculation only sounds plausible. If you consider that there is also a lot of development going on such as Libdogecoin and a “GigaWallet”, it seems even more possible that some kind of coup is going to happen in the future.
While it is true that Musk’s appearance in Twitters headquarters yesterday had some impact on the price of DOGE, this is not the only reason why the price is pumping. The whole crypto market is witnessing a relief rally for the last three days and this affects also the price for Dogecoin.

It remains to be seen if Musk can have a positive impact in the near future, since crypto is still heavily correlated with US stocks. This correlation reveals that there is a chance that if stocks are going to fall to new lows, crypto might follow them.
With Musk having a followership of over 110 million accounts on Twitter alone he can affect the price with his statements. This is true for crypto assets with lower liquidity like Floki Inu and Shiba Inu which both profited from Musk’s tweets in the past. That being said, he might not be able to stop a bear market with his outreach, but he can fuel ongoing rallies for sure.

Elon Musk has taken over Twitter and while we are only four days in after he took over, popcorn is already becoming the ultimately scarce resource on planet earth. He started by firing three executives including the CEO who managed to corner him and basically forced him to honor his initial offer for Twitter. Now Elon Musk is reversing “woke speech” and replacing it with free speech. Some fear that this could have a negative impact on democracy while others believe that even toxic or outright hateful opinions should be allowed on the social media platform. What are Elon’s plans for Twitter, and how could a subscription model contribute to Dogecoins mass adoption?

Elon Musk is back and this time the Dogefather is driving the mass adoption of his favorite meme coin even further. The Boring Company is perhaps the most successful running gag of all time offering products for sale that nobody needs, but everybody wants to buy. Today, Musk made yet another announcement that involved Dogecoin after facing harsh criticism for his comments on the war in Ukraine over the last week. Why is Musk betting on Dogecoin and how is it integrated into the Boring Company?

Dogechain had a great start, but nevertheless caused a lot of controversy in the crypto space. Some people thought it was an unacceptable move to advertise the DeFi product as something that is based on Dogecoin rather than admitting that both the blockchain and the brand have nothing to do with the project. Even the Dogecoin Foundation had to make a statement to set things right. Fast forward: A few weeks later Dogechain seems to have the first security incident and yet again two versions are passed around on social media. Was there even an exploit at Dogechain and were any funds at risk?

Dog coins are somehow most attractive to retail investors and even to people like Elon Musk. The reason is simple, they involve a strong sense of community and a lot of fun. Another factor that drives many investors is the idea that their favorite meme coin could reach $1 one fine day. Last year Dogecoin made this almost possible scoring $0,70 at its all-time high. Ever since new meme coins are popping up trying to create a similar success story. What is Dogechain, how is it affiliated with Dogecoin and why is everybody so excited?
