Elon Musk: "Dogefather" and love for memes
Popularly referred to as the "dogefather" in the Dogecoin community, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has long been regarded as a strong supporter of Dogecoin.
Tesla already accepts Dogecoin for some of its merchandise, and Musk reiterated this year that he will eat a McDonald's Happy Meal on the TV if the fast food chain accepts payments in Dogecoin.
Driven by his love for memes, Musk has made some tweets that the crypto community took to be an oblique reference to a few cryptocurrencies. Unlike Dogecoin, Musk has not directly acknowledged these tokens.
Earlier this month, prices of the controversial Milady's NFT collection increased after Musk tweeted a picture of a Milady NFT with the words "There is no meme, I love you."
More recently, Elon Musk shared a "Pepe the Frog" meme, which led to a brief rise in the price of the meme coin PEPE.
FLOKI saw an impressive rise at the year's start after Elon Musk posted a meme involving his dog Floki posing as the Twitter boss.
