At press time, DOGE did not attract high interest on Twitter as it was mentioned in 1,243 tweets, while BTC, the top cryptocurrency in Cointrendz’s list of Twitter’s ten most mentioned coins, attracted 7,240 tweets.
Litecoin (CRYPTO: LTC) was the second-most mentioned cryptocurrency on Twitter. On Monday, a fake press release that announced a partnership between LTC and Walmart Inc (NYSE:WMT) led to a steep spike in the cryptocurrency’s price.
Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus noted that LTC skyrocketed 25% on “the BS.” after which the “gains [were] erased in minutes.” Markus said this was a wake-up call not to take “this stuff so seriously.”
Meanwhile, in a Benzinga survey of sentiment, 68.3% of respondents said that DOGE will reach $1 by the end of 2021.
Also on Monday, YouTuber Matt Wallace said he was buying the dip in Dogecoin. He announced the purchase of 6,900 coins for a total price of $1,664.34.
