Almost a week ago Elon Musk had directly commented about the future of digital assets and their potential. On Monday, the Tesla CEO proclaimed that the ‘Musk Effect’ is still robust, especially with his favorite crypto coin DOGE.
At the end of June, SpaceX CEO shared that he would be getting a pet Shiba Inu soon, and announced naming it ‘Floki.’ Earlier on Monday, he posted a tweet, a photo of his new puppy.

Elon Musk effect is still influencing prices in the crypto market
Since earlier 2021, the meme-based cryptocurrency has turned on those who didn’t take it seriously. Elon Musk wouldn’t resist tweeting about the coin until it reached an all-time high in mid-April. Indeed the such a semi-ironic motion involved thousands of buyers, tens of thousands of online posters, and the world’s richest man, Elon Musk.
Dogecoin soared up by more than 60 percent over the last 24 hours and experienced an increment of more than 1,400% in trading volume according to CoinMarketCap. It is noteworthy that in 2019, DOGE had lost almost 90% of its value, until 2021.
Is Dogecoin a potential project?
Billy Markus, a software engineer at IBM, set DOGE live. Since its establishment, Dogecoin has also been used to donate money to charity cities. These have included the 2014 Jamaican Bobsled team who couldn’t have the money to get to the Sochi Winter Olympics. Moreover, the clean water project in Kenya is called Doge4Water.
