Volume data from cryptocurrency market data service CoinMarketCap shows that DOGE trading volume spiked from about $382 million per 24 hours to well over $850 million in little to no time on Monday, which coincided with a pick up of activity on-chain. This uptick in activity was the result of Tesla Inc. TSLA CEO Elon Musk tweeting that had no plans to sell his stake in Dogecoin — which resulted in the coin's price jumping up by 10% shortly thereafter. 

DOGE Price Action: As of press time, Dogecoin is trading at $0.1133 after seeing its price increase by about 0.33% over the last 24 hours.
