Why Is It Moving? DOGE traded in tandem with other major coins, which were in the red as the global cryptocurrency market cap fell 1.7% to $2 trillion.
DOGE was among the most mentioned coins on Twitter. At press time, it attracted 419 tweets, according to Cointrendz data.
The three most mentioned coins were Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Cardano, which attracted 2,928, 1,109, and 929 tweets respectively.
Tough comments by regulatory authorities in India and Pakistan coupled with the restriction of cryptocurrency advertisements by the Monetary Authority of Singapore were cited as some examples of “actions that will only shift economic value to other countries who are more accepting of this [cryptocurrency] revolution, like El Salvador,” said Marcus Sotiriou, a senior analyst with United Kingdom-based digital asset broker GlobalBlock.
On Tuesday, DOGE-bull and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban expressed agreement with a tweet by “Crypto Jebb” that asked Bitcoin users to “kiss the A$$ of dogecoin and the doge coins because they are the gateway drug to Bitcoin”
DOGE co-creator Billy Markus also chimed in and took a dig at Bitcoin maximalists, bemoaning their “marketing.”
I’ve said this too. Bitcoin marketing from maxis is basically “I am better than you, you are all stupid losers, come join our circlejerk of sanctimonious, all male, toxic humorless jackasses” and it was never going to grow the space or attract new people.

Meanwhile, Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk tweeted a photo of a rocket headed towards the Moon and said in a separate tweet “Back to the moon soon.”

Going to the moon is often a reference in cryptocurrency talk for the price of a token rising to extraordinarily high levels.
Musk’s tweet attracted the attention of several DOGE-oriented Twitter handles soon enough.
Can’t wait to see the #Dogecoin placed on the moon
