Apart from the burns, FLOKI is enjoying the publicity gained from a recent tweet by Elon Musk. FLOKI’s latest spike comes after the Twitter owner posted a picture of his Shiba Inu dog, Floki. For those unaware, the FLOKI project is a tribute to Musk’s furry friend.
After Musk posted the picture, popular memecoins began to rally. Dogecoin (DOGE), for which Musk is a prominent supporter, and FLOKI began making significant upward movements. However, DOGE rival Shiba Inu (SHIB) reacted passively to the billionaire’s tweet.

Furthermore, the cryptocurrency markets have received a fresh inflow of funds, surging top tokens. Bitcoin (BTC) reached a 6-month high after gaining more than 10% in 24 hours. The global cryptocurrency market cap also surged by 8% in 24 hours. The sudden spike is likely due to investors easing up about regulatory changes. Recently the SEC made moves against certain cryptocurrency firms, such as Kraken, which led to increased fears. However, those fears may have subsided, leading to fresh funds flowing in.
