The coin pump began following a call to buy DOGE on the r / SatoshiStreetBets Reddit community, which has over 180,000 members. Sabredit calls itself a cryptocurrency analogue of the r / WallStreetBets group, which earlier provoked a rapid rise in the shares of GameStop, contrary to market expectations.
“We will not budge until DOGE reaches $ 1, the time has come!” – reads one of the messages in the group.
Elon Musk reacted to the rise in the price of DOGE, which was noted in r / SatoshiStreetBets.

Last year, a tweet from the head of Tesla and SpaceX about the prospects for using Dogecoin technology as the global financial system led to a 17% growth in the cryptocurrency.
In December, Musk’s account posted a series of tweets about bitcoin that surprised the community, and a new post about DOGE, which bumped up the coin’s price again. In the account header, Musk was named the former CEO of Dogecoin.
Earlier, he became the winner of a comic April Fools’ poll, in which users were asked to vote for the most suitable candidate for this position.
