Cryptocurrency (DOGE) has witnessed a notable surge in value, with its market capitalization soaring to an estimated $12 billion today. The uptick is largely driven by the anticipation of new utility features and rumors suggesting a potential integration into Elon Musk’s X Payments system.
The digital currency, often fueled by its vibrant community and high-profile endorsements, has seen mixed results in its price performance. However, a significant positive trend was observed on Saturday as Dogecoin notched a sharp rise above 10%, climbing from $0.078 to $0.090, amid the debut of Elon Musk’s Xpayments. This correlated with a CoinMarketCap data showing a threefold rise in DOGE’s trading activity, indicative of market optimism.
Dogecoin’s association with Elon Musk, who has been an advocate for the meme-inspired cryptocurrency since 2019, continues to play a significant role in its market movements. With Musk’s “everything app” strategy for X, peer-to-peer payments may soon include Dogecoin, aiming for roll-out by mid-2024. The cryptocurrency community is abuzz with talk of DOGE becoming an X payment option following the company’s acquisition of money operations licenses.
