Why Is Dogecoin Price Rallying?

One of the possible reasons for the rise in the price of Dogecoin was the support of the American rapper Snoop Dogg. On February 6, he published a meme with a cryptocurrency symbol, a Shiba Inu dog, in the image of himself and noted Elon Musk.

Tesla and SpaceX CEOs responded with a joke. In a scene from The Lion King, Musk is holding Kiss musician Gene Simmons, who previously talked about investing in Dogecoin .

The cryptocurrency was also supported by musician Kevin Jonas.

Musk later posted a comic video called “D is for Dogecoin”.

The founder of the cryptocurrency bank Galaxy Digital, Mike Novogratz, expressed concern about the future of the asset. According to him,  the DOGE madness will end badly. For the same reason as GME. Greed and attraction. DOGE has no purpose.

Earlier, Dogecoin was up nearly 50% in less than an hour after Musk’s series of tweets were posted.

Recall that an unknown cryptocurrency whale has concentrated more than 28% of Dogecoin coins on its address.
