XRP community stirs after Elon Musk’s new tweet

Tech mogul and eccentric billionaire Twitter owner Elon Musk has recently baffled his army of followers. Then popular XRP proponent @MackAttackXRP took the opportunity to get Elon Musk’s attention.

This time, Musk’s tweet was just the letter X.

Many of the billionaire’s followers immediately began toying with other letters, asking what the tweet meant or sending sarcastic replies.

Someone even asked if it was the name of Musk’s child. His youngest son with Canadian singer Grimes was born in 2020, referred to as X AE A-XII——X. Musk’s other daughter, named Y, was born in 2022.

An active anonymous member of the XRP army @MackAttackXRP shared a photo with the XRP cryptocurrency logo in the hope that what Musk really meant might be XRP.

However, on multiple occasions, Musk has confirmed that he is only loyal to the Dogecoin meme cryptocurrency, which he believes is people’s currency and better for payments than Bitcoin. However, in addition to DOGE, Musk also holds BTC and ETH.

Musk never mentioned XRP in his tweets or shared his views on cryptocurrencies in any other way. But he often mentions DOGE in his tweets.

The most recent was on Monday, when Musk responded to a tweet from a Twitter employee with whom he had a public spat on Twitter in March.

At the time of writing, XRP is up more than 3% and is trading at $0.51.

Last week, the crypto and Twitter communities were surprised to learn that Twitter’s sacred “blue bird” symbol was gone, replaced by the image of a Shiba Inu in the DOGE logo. The price of the largest meme cryptocurrency jumped more than 33% on the news.

Taking advantage of this, some of the largest DOGE holders have begun dumping their memecoins for huge profits. Two of the top 5 DOGE addresses sold 1.1 billion DOGE and 300 million DOGE, worth roughly $130 million, according to Lookonchain tracker, a “Smart Money” wallet that quickly buys and sells for a profit.

Followers wondered if the wallets were related to Elon Musk. However, over the weekend, the Bluebird logo was restored on Twitter and the DOGE image was gone. This caused the memecoin to drop by around 7%.
