While the broader cryptocurrency market has entered strong consolidation, mem crypto Dogecoin made a strong move after Elon Musk called its people’s cryptocurrency. In his recent Tweet response, Musk explained his reason to support DOGE after calling it people’s crypto. Musk said:
Lots of people I talked to on the production lines at Tesla or building rockets at SpaceX own Doge. They aren’t financial experts or Silicon Valley technologists. That’s why I decided to support Doge – it felt like the people’s crypto.
Earlier this year in May 2021, Elon Musk also declared that it will accept payments in Dogecoin for its upcoming space missions. As per the recent survey by Finder, the United States has doubled the adoption rate of DOGE in comparison to the rest of the world. The report notes that one-third of crypto investors in the U.S. are invested in Dogecoin superseding even Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).
Elon Musk has been an ardent supporter of Dogecoin (DOGE) and has shown major interest in supporting the Dogecoin ecosystem. While Dogecoin has been consolidating over the last few weeks, Shiba Inu (SHIB) has taken the lead.

Over the last month, Shiba Inu (SHIB) has skyrocketed over 500% while hitting an all-time high of $0.000042 on Sunday, October 24. As of press time, it is trading close to its ATH levels.

As per on-chain data provider Santiment, the crowd sentiment is currently negative for Shiba Inu, however, the meme cryptocurrency has always rallied whenever the euphoria cools off.
