The buying frenzy that occurred last week as a result of Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter was fueled by Dogecoin’s continued rally on Monday. After Musk took control of Twitter (TWTR), Dogecoin (DOGE-USD) performed better than all other major cryptocurrencies.
A breakout of memecoins was sparked by Friday’s completion of Musk’s Twitter acquisition, with dogecoin leading the pack. Dogecoin’s price increased by more than 104 percent last week, but it dropped early on Monday.
However, the price rebounded to over $0.12 thanks to strong investor support, so this was only a brief decline. According to data from coinglass.com, over $4 billion worth of dogecoin short positions have now been settled on multiple cryptocurrency exchanges.
Dogecoin has been in a ‘bear channel’ since May 2021.
