Following Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter for $44 billion, digital currency markets jumped in value and crypto meme tokens saw a significant spike.
24-hour statistics at 4 p.m. (ET) on Monday had shown dogecoin (DOGE) jumped 26.3% in value against the U.S. dollar.
Dogecoin (DOGE) is still up 18.8% today and is hovering just above the $0.15 zone.
Many believe the rise is based on mere speculation that Musk could possibly implement dogecoin payments into some of Twitter’s operations.
