Dogecoin's on-chain activity levels have yet to return to usual levels after showing a higher than normal level of activity for an extended period due to market excitement and turmoil caused by mainly two separate reasons.

One activity increase started on the day Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk's Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) acquisition was announced spurring hopes he would integrate Dogecoin into the platform. On that day, the network processed about 400 transactions worth at least $2 million within 24 hours. 

The Dogecoin blockchain showed a heightened level of activity another time when the collapse of smart contract cryptocurrency Terra LUNA/USD and its integrated stablecoin TerraUSD UST/USD made waves in the whole crypto market.
