DOGE investors bet big on Elon Musk’s SNL appearance today

  • Dogecoin has pumped by nearly 100 percent this week in anticipation of Elon Musk’s SNL appearance.
  • Expected to mention DOGE, the billionaire could make or break DOGE.

Tonight, Elon Musk will finally host the popular TV show Saturday Night Live (SNL). Since his confirmation, there has been plenty of speculation that he will use the opportunity to promote his favorite crypto asset – DOGE. With this in mind, investors have been pumping prices.

In the last 7 days, the coin has almost doubled. Starting the week just under $0.37, the token has come into the weekend above $0.70 to mark a new all-time high. With a market cap of a little over $97 billion, the coin is $6 billion short of flipping BNB in third place. Not bad for a crypto that started as a joke.

In the last week, its popularity has further led Gemini and Binance to both list it on their platforms. This has exposed the digital asset to more investors with Robinhood previously the only platform pushing the token to retail investors.

However, there still remains much controversy about its utility and centralization. Some market leaders have been critical of the fact that the coin has no utility or even innovative development. Doge is a bubble that will ultimately see most retail traders lose a lot of money, Cardano’s Hoskinson believes. There has also been controversy over its centralization.

Despite this, one in every four Americans believes that Dogecoin is the new Bitcoin. The token has had a phenomenal couple of months, partly because of Musk’s mentions of it. With more and more investors FOMOing around it, it is set to keep climbing.

Holders of the token expect that the digital asset will top $1 by the end of the weekend, at which point it will have flipped BNB. However, it all hinges on Elon Musk making a mention, a positive mention. In the past, he has suggested that DOGE could end up becoming the currency of the world – since life likes irony and DOGE started as a joke. A comment of the same nature will likely send prices to the desired levels.

You can bet on Elon mentioning DOGE and price hitting $1
