Musk announced his intention to have a dog back in June this year after memes in which the head of Elon Musk and the image of a shiba inu were photographed to a frame from the cartoon "The Lion King".
Then the head of Tesla wrote that he would call his dog an unusual name.
According to one of the oldest and largest cryptocurrency data aggregators CoinGecko, immediately after the publication of the tweet, the comic cryptocurrency FLOKI increased in price by 520%
This is not the first time that Elon Musk's tweets have such an impact on the growth of a cryptocurrency. In January 2021, the site kp.ru described how Musk "accidentally donated" $ 600 million to a small American company. Twitter users misinterpreted the words of the entrepreneur and bought the wrong shares by mistake.
