The world’s richest person, Tesla‘s Elon Musk, caused quite a stir throughout the Cryptoverse again.
Musk is back from his brief Twitter hiatus, and he tweeted a picture of an ascending rocket with just one word: ‘Doge’.

The 14th cryptocurrency by market capitalization (per Coingecko), dogecoin (DOGE), is up 48.6% in the last 24 hours and a whopping 344.9% in a week, at 7:57 UTC on Thursday morning.
“Occasionally I make jokes about dogecoin, but they really just meant to be jokes. Dogecoin was made as a joke to make fun of cryptocurrencies obviously,” Musk said last week, adding that “the most ironic outcome would be that dogecoin becomes the currency of the Earth.”
Meanwhile, Musk removed the Bitcoin (BTC) symbol he had put in his Twitter bio a few days ago, which also caught the Cryptoverse’s attention.
He also removed #Bitcoin from his bio.
Are we dead ?

Time for us to do some mental gymnastics and somehow turn this into a bullish crypto tweet. https://t.co/lPANLQ1quk
