Analysts had anticipated the Tesla (TSLA) CEO or as some call him, the “Dogefather,” to mention the crypto on the tv show and send prices upward, instead his mention of the coin crashed it almost 25% from $0.69 to $0.48 just a few minutes into his skit.
Dogecoin kept losing from its last week highs on Sunday, and is now trading at 33% lower at $0.47.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin (BTC-USD), which was chaotic in the past days and struggling to maintain its highs, was lower by 2.2% to $57,894.
Bucking the spiral, Ethereum (ETH-USD) — the second cryptocurrency after Bitcoin — increased on the decline, rising by 11% to get to a record of $3,958.
