Dogecoin Price Drops During Musk’s SNL Appearance

Dogecoin (DOGE) fell as much as 29.5%, dropping to $0.49, during Elon Musk’s SNL debut.

Musk mentioned DOGE in his opening monologue and on SNL’s “Weekend Update.”  He even called himself the “Dogefather,” while howling “To the moon,” a catchphrase popular among crypto enthusiasts intent on driving the value of the cryptocurrency to infinity and higher.

DOGE retreated from its all-time high after the billionaire called it “a hustle” during the show.

Before the show, DOGE was priced at $0.66, near its all-time highs. During the course of the show, it went as low as $0.51 as holders cashed out.

Meanwhile, Barry Silbert, the founder of major cryptocurrency ventures, most notably Grayscale suggests that DOGE holders should sell their coins for Bitcoin.

Various analysts in the space agree that newbies making quick gains should siphon them into a safer risk-adjusted bet like Bitcoin.

He later went on to tweet:

Robinhood Crashes Amid DOGE Selloffs

During the course of the show’s frenzied DOGE sell-off, several Robinhood users complained that Robinhood’s crypto trading wasn’t working.

The trading platform confirmed the outage on Twitter while updating the service was restored in less than an hour, claiming that the issue was related to “high trading volume and volatility.”

This isn’t the first time that Robinhood experienced trading crashes in dogecoin. Last month, the trading platform said customers experienced “sporadic crypto order failures” during a dogecoin rally. The problems have persisted even this past week when a Dogecoin surge led to another outage.
