There was no 10x rally, but the price of Dogecoin did see a 10% jump on Sunday as a result. The jump occurred despite Dogecoin co-founder Jackson Palmer making a quick return to Twitter to cite his dissatisfaction with the crypto industry.

Dogecoin’s other co-founder Billy Markus took to Twitter to post his own meme about Musk’s market-moving powers — which are debatable considering that half of Dogecoin’s gains have already been wiped out with the cryptocurrency currently trading at $0.18, according to CoinMarketCap.
As compared to the days of yore, the crypto community has likely grown tired of Musk's tweets, possibly making his influence fade away as just another passing fad.

Dogecoin started out the year at around $0.004 but soared by more than 15,000% to $0.70 in May. The rally allowed some, like Goldman Sachs executive Aziz McMahon, to cash out and leave their jobs. Since the days of yore, the cryptocurrency has lost over 70% of its value.

The crypto community has criticised Musk in the past of creating volatility with his comments. Some got so sick of his antics that they even created a cryptocurrency to get their message across called StopElon.
