Dogecoin now worth more than Twitter, Dogecoin price flies to the moon 69

Dogecoin was priced at $0.56 at the time of writing, with a market capitalization of around $70 billion... $27 billion more than the second-largest social networking site in the world: Twitter. Twitter has a market cap of around $43 billion at the time of writing.

To put Dogecoin's new $70 billion+ market cap into perspective, Dell has a market cap of $73.6 billion, COVID-19 vaccine maker Moderna has a $69 billion market cap, Activision-Blizzard has a market cap of $68.9 billion, and even Heineken with its $67 billion market cap. Dogecoin might have started off as a joke, but it's serious business now.

The price of Dogecoin is unstable like all cryptocurrency as it could fluctuate by 10-20-30% virtually instantly, like all other cryptocurrencies. Elon Musk is hosting Saturday Night Live on May 8, to much controversy with the cast of SNL triggered by his hosting -- more on that here, as Musk tweeted out "Let's find out just how live Saturday Night Live really is" without context. Maybe he'll say "alright everyone, buy Dogecoin right NOW and we'll watch it rise in the ad breaks" or something... imagine that.
