Why is Dogecoin falling?

Dogecoin made headlines last week following the acquisition of Twitter by Elon Musk, who has previously voiced support for the cryptocurrency. With Musk spearheading the social platform, many people speculated that Twitter could adopt the meme cryptocurrency as a payment option for its premium services.

These assumptions led to a massive rally in Dogecoin, with an over 130% increase at the end of October. But the information shared with Platformer revealed that Twitter is putting its cryptocurrency wallet plans on pause, among other planned and existing features on the social platform. 

The report meant that Twitter may not be adding Dogecoin or any cryptocurrency support anytime soon, hence the crash of DOGE. 

Elsewhere, Social media giant Meta is planning to step up its cryptocurrency and Web3 by announcing that Instagram will soon launch new features that can allow creators to easily issue and sell NFTs right on the app.
