It is not surprising to see whales move large amounts of Dogecoin in the past day. The price of Dogecoin has spiked following news of Elon Musk’s Twitter deal nearing its conclusion.

Yesterday, Musk posted a video of him walking into Twitter headquarters in San Francisco, ahead of the court-ordered deadline to finalize the $44 billion deal. In the video, Musk was seen holding a sink and walking into the Twitter office.

Dogecoin Price and Social Sentiment Soar

The development got Dogecoin investors excited. Members of the Dogecoin community believe the Tesla exec will make decisions that will favor the cryptocurrency when he eventually takes over the social media platform.

Based on this, the canine-themed cryptocurrency has soared in different aspects in recent days. Data from leading cryptocurrency aggregator platform Coingecko shows that the price of Dogecoin is up 20.2% and is currently changing hands at $0.079.

Musk’s Twitter takeover is also being reflected in Dogecoin’s social sentiments.
