DOGE - powered by Musk's activity
Bitcoin has added another 3.3% in the past 24 hours to $20.8K, bringing the gain over the past seven days to 9%. Ethereum is growing at a higher rate, reaching $1570 (+5.8% in 24 hours and 21% in 7 days).
Over the last day, major altcoins added between 1.5% (DOT) and 21% (DOGE). According to CoinMarketCap estimates, total cryptocurrency capitalisation surpassed the $1 trillion mark, up 3.3% on the day.
Dogecoin was again buying from Twitter's acquisition by Elon Musk, who had previously said he might add the coin to pay for the social network's services. However, the latest rise looks more like a 'buy rumour' pattern, and it can't be ruled out that the pump will soon turn into a dump.
