- The token’s price reacted positively to the news, rising to approximately $0.00003987: 40% more than the valuation 24 hours ago.
- FLOKI has been one of the best performers on the crypto market in the past several months. A possible reason behind that could be Elon Musk’s interaction with it, even if they don’t seem directly correlated at times.
- One of the wealthiest people on the planet displayed a sarcastic picture of his dog in February, wearing glasses and signing a contract to become the new CEO of Twitter.
- Keeping in mind that his Shiba Inu breed is named Floki, it is no wonder why the price of the dog-themed digital asset – FLOKI – climbed by over 40%.
- This was not the first time Musk had triggered a price increase for the memecoin. He dressed his dog in a Santa Claus outfit on Christmas 2021.
- FLOKI skyrocketed by 19,000% in the next 48 hours before tumbling shortly after.
