Elon Musk helps Dogecoin jump to new monthly high

Musk keeps dogecoin

Dogecoin (DOGE) has continued its bullish price action for the second straight day, with the leading meme coin jumping to a new monthly high of $0.08022 today.

Dogecoin was trading at around $0.077614 a piece at press time, up 16.7% over the past 24 hours. Trading volumes also spiked by 196% over the same period.

The move higher comes after Dogecoin fell sharply from its all-time high of $0.0855 on May 8th, with the coin tumbling as low as $0.058 within two days. Since then, however, Dogecoin has been on a tear higher, with the coin now up more than 38% from those lows.

On a weekly note, DOGE has gained more than 31%, the largest weekly gainer among the top 20 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization. The meme coin is now up more than 515% since the beginning of the year.

Dogecoin, the tenth-largest cryptocurrency with a market capitalization of $10.5 billion, is less than a billion dollars away from surpassing Solana (SOL).

Thanks Elon

The main reason behind Dogecoin’s bullish price action is likely Elon Musk’s recent announcements about his Twitter acquisition.

Tesla’s Chief has been a big-time backer of Dogecoin, leading to increased enthusiasm among investors.

Besides the Musk factor, on-chain metrics also show strong positive growth for Dogecoin.

Published

on

The contagion from the FTX crypto collapse has claimed another major scalp.

Cryptocurrency lender BlockFi has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

BlockFi claimed more than 100,000 creditors with liabilities up to $10 billion.

BlockFi was founded in 2017 and is now hoping bankruptcy protection will allow it to stabilize the company and restructure.

In a statement, the company says:

“With the collapse of FTX, the BlockFi management team and board of directors immediately took action to protect clients and the Company,”

“From inception, BlockFi has worked to positively shape the cryptocurrency industry and advance the sector.”

Days after FTX declared bankruptcy, BlockFi said it had significant exposure to FTX and its other corporate entities.

BlockFi is now the fourth crypto-focused company to seek bankruptcy protection this year, following FTX, Voyager Digital, and Celsius Network.

It’s Musk v Twitter in tech war

Published

A war has broken out between Elon Musk in his battle against Apple.

In a tweet, owner Musk says Apple may ban Twitter from the App store, which would be devastating for his company, and wonders if it has to do with free speech. He even tagged Apple boss Tim Cook.

Musk says: “Apple has threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store, but won’t tell us why.”

This all comes in the wake of other organisations allegedly following Apple’s suit and cutting back their advertising spending since the $44 billion Musk takeover.

General Mills and Pfizer have been two companies that have gone down this path and diverted their spending elsewhere.

Right now users can still see ads in their Twitter feeds.

Bitcoin failed to break its descent and fell more than 3 percent.

Protesters outraged by harsh COVID-19 regulations called for China’s strong leader to quit.

China is the world’s second-largest economy and has a significant impact on global financial markets.

Stocks and cryptos aren’t considered safe havens, leading to bearing price action.

Analysts are hoping for a sharp bullish reversal if and when the protests end.
