One of the most popular voices behind the meme cryptocurrency that is Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) is Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk. The CEO has tweeted about the Shiba Inu-themed cryptocurrency many times and often caused spikes in the valuation.

Ahead of Elon Musk’s appearance on "Saturday Night Live" airing on Comcast Corporation's (NASDAQ:CMCSA) NBC network, many believe Dogecoin could continue its run. Others wonder if the cryptocurrency will fall after Musk’s appearance. Musk has hinted that Dogecoin will be featured on the episode.

First Tweet: To get a starting value for Dogecoin, we will look at two price points. On April 2, 2019, Musk replied to a tweet saying “Dogecoin might be my fav cryptocurrency. It’s pretty cool.” The response came to a poll that had 3,581 votes and declared Musk the winner as the CEO of Dogecoin with 49% of the vote.

Musk beat out Viatalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH), who got 9% of the vote, Charlie Lee (@SatoshiLite), the creator of Litecoin (CRYPTO: LTC), who got 8% of the vote and Marshall Hayner, the founder of Metal, who got 33% of the vote.

The other starting point is the first time Musk tweeted about Dogecoin, which to this author’s knowledge came on July 17, 2020, when Musk shared a meme of Dogecoin passing the global financial system saying, “It’s inevitable.” Musk even replied to the tweet recently on April 16 with a watching eyes emoji.
