Dogecoin is not getting all the attention it craves to shoot up in price from Tesla CEO Elon Musk in 2023. Musk’s attention has been moving toward ChatGPT and overall artificial intelligence (AI) technology since the start of the year.

The billionaire mentioned Dogecoin only once in February as a reply to a tweet sitting next to Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch at the SuperBowl.

He also posted a picture of his dog Floki naming him the CEO of Twitter, but Floki Inu spiked in the price instead and not Dogecoin.

Musk has been a vocal supporter of DOGE and his tweets and interviews about the meme-coin helped its price soar. As tweets about DOGE are now less frequent, the meme currency is unable to scale up in the indices.

Talking about his newfound love for AI, Musk tweeted, “I used to be in crypto, but now I got interested in AI”. Dogecoin dipped 22% in the last seven days, experiencing no sudden spurt in price as Musk’s involvement took a backseat.


What Next For Dogecoin?


The leading meme coin is now trading at $0.07 and is either dipping or trading sideways in 2023. DOGE needs a boost from Musk to shoot up in price, or else the cryptocurrency might dip further. Updates about the DOGE-1 space mission are minimal and not fully confirmed, including whether the rocket will be launched this year.

Therefore, Dogecoin has no buzz at the moment and its price movements depend on the amount of hype it receives. If DOGE doesn’t receive the hype it craves, its price could dwindle further by the end of the year. The DOGE-1 space mission is now a make-or-break moment for the cryptocurrency that could dictate its next moves.
