Elon Musk boosts Dogecoin again amid fresh ‘strong interest’ in altcoins

28 Apr 2021   #Dogecoin

Musk is about to host Saturday Night Live, something he says he will do as “The Dogefather” as DOGE/USD shoots up more than 20%. Dogecoin (DOGE), the meme-based cryptocurrency that is a pet favorite of Elon Musk, has a new date for its price diary - Musk’s appearance on Saturday Night Live. In a tweet on Wednesday, Musk described himself as “The Dogefather” as he prepares to host the popular American television show on May 8.

Musk is well known for his PR stunts when it comes to Dogecoin, with social media posts often sparking price gains — something which has also benefited Bitcoin (BTC).

Bitcoin continued to range, meanwhile, failing to cement $55,000 support in a boon for those expecting a continuation of “alt season 2.0.”

“This recent recovery in Altcoin Market Cap is much sharper than the post-retrace recovery in February,” popular Twitter account Rekt Capital commented on Tuesday, comparing different retracements in 2021. “Even the actual -17% April retrace itself is shallower than the one back in February. These are all signs that point to a strong interest towards Altcoins in general.”

Unsubstantiated rumors that Facebook would announce a BTC allocation in its quarterly earnings due later on the day provided some bullish counterpoint to the mood.
