The token reacted with a strong price surge that drove its gains to around 80% at the time of writing. Musk posted another tweet saying “ur welcome.” He previously added another post saying that Doge is the people’s crypto and that the users don’t have to be “gigachads” to own the coin. The CEO of SpaceX was quite positive about the crypto industry and even updated his Twitter bio to say only “Bitcoin” which also boosted the price immensely though it has since been removed. He reaffirmed his support for the number one cryptocurrency by saying that BTC is a good thing and that he is sorry he didn’t buy one eight years ago.
As recently reported, The high-volume futures exchange BitMEX launched DOGE perpetual contracts and now traders and high volume crypto speculators can speculate on the future price of DOGE, the popular meme-coin starting on February 5th as per the press release that we have in our news today. The Hong Kong-based exchange was the first that introduced futures trading which is basically financial contracts that allow traders to purchase or sell assets at a predetermined price in the future to crypto markets, transacting billions of dollars each day. Its trading volume however dropped in the past few years because of the newer competitors and the legal issues around the founding team. Dogecoin’s product will be traded based on the underlying BTC equivalent of the DOGE/Tether price pairing on the exchanges.
