Elon Musk Tweet Pumps Meme Coins Over 60%

After the head of Twitter, Tesla, and Space X posted his Shiba Inu dog named Floki in a sweater with the inscription CEO on the social network, the rate of Dogecoin, SHIB, and FLOKI meme coins skyrocketed.

On the evening of Tuesday, February 14, Elon Musk showed a ‘new CEO’ to his subscribers in a series of tweets and wrote:

The new CEO of Twitter is amazing. So much better than that other guy! He’s great with numbers!


While the billionaire’s tweets about Floki continue to gain likes and get retweets, Dogecoin, SHIB, and FLOKI rates are going up.

CoinDesk data shows that the price of DOGE and SHIB has risen by more than 6% over the past 24 hours. Meanwhile, the price of the FLOKI token increased by 64%.

One of the richest people in the world regularly speaks out in support of Dogecoin.

Still, the coin gained popularity, and now its capitalization exceeds $10 billion, mainly thanks to Elon Musk.
