Those are NFT gaming metaverse Valhalla, a marketplace for merchandise, FlokiPlaces, and Floki Inuversity, an educational content platform.

400 million DOGE wired by top-tier whale

Speaking of another meme cryptocurrency related to Elon Musk and massively favored by him, a staggering amount of Dogecoin (400 million of it) has been transferred over the past two days.

That is worth approximately $69 million. The transaction was made by a top 20 Dogecoin wallet, whose owner paid only $4 to move that amount of crypto.

Meanwhile, the Dogecoin community is looking forward to Elon Musk making his promise come true; earlier in December, he tweeted that Tesla will launch some merch to be paid for with DOGE as an experiment.
