Dogecoin (DOGE) Soars as Elon Musk’s Twitter Deal Nears Completion

The price surge has seen DOGE trade at an inter-day high of $0.08028, a new 10-week high for the meme coin. Dogecoin has now reclaimed the position of the 10th-largest cryptocurrency as its market cap has shot up to $10.53 billion from under $8 billion three days ago.

The DOGE rally has been linked to the recent reports that Elon Musk, a famous Dogecoin proponent and self-acclaimed Dogefather, is preparing to conclude the Twitter deal this week. Musk is reportedly looking to seal the deal by Friday, October 28th.

The recent spike in the price of DOGE also comes amid huge whale transactions. In the last 24 hours, on-chain data provider Santiment has reported that there have been more than 420 DOGE whale transactions, each valued at over $100k.

Flipsider:

  • Despite Dogecoin’s massive rally, it has been outshined by its ecosystem token Dogechain (DC), which has gained over 400% in the last week.

Several positive factors currently drive the Dogecoin rally, and the completion of the Twitter deal could serve as a further boost to the price of DOGE.

Bitcoin (BTC) Nears $21k Amidst $1 Billion Liquidation of Short Positions

Bitcoin currently trades at $20,600, holding above the psychologically important $20,000 level. The recent price rally helped push the global cryptocurrency market cap above the $1 trillion mark.

The rally can be linked to positive macroeconomic conditions, specifically reports emerging that the United States Federal Reserve could roll out smaller-sized interest rate hikes over the next two months.

The rally also coincides with the stock market’s posting multi-day rallies to notch their biggest gains since June. In addition, the United Kingdom announced a crypto-friendly prime minister, Rishi Sunak.

Flipsider:

  • Bitcoin’s rally above $20k triggered a wave of liquidations of more than $700 million on October 26th. Over the last 24 hours, more than $217 million in BTC positions have been liquidated.

Why You Should Care

With macroeconomic conditions favoring the crypto market, Bitcoin would look to hold above $20k in preparation for more gains.

Meta Stock Falls as ‘Reality Labs’ Posts $3.7b Loss, Metaverse can’t be Self-Regulated

Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, and a big investor in the metaverse, has seen its share price tumble by more than 19%. It’s also had more than $65 billion wiped off its market value.

The fall in the stock price of Meta comes after its Reality Labs unit – responsible for developing virtual reality and related augmented reality technology for the Metaverse, reported a loss of more than $3.7 billion for the third quarter.

The disappointing Q3 earning report was compounded by the U.K. media regulator chief, Melanie Dawes, warning that metaverse creators like Meta and Microsoft cannot be self-regulated.

According to the Ofcom chief, self-regulating the metaverse by Meta and Microsoft won’t fly under the U.K.’s Online Safety Bill, which seeks to curb harmful content from being widely shared on the internet.

Flipsider:

  • Meta has announced that it is prepared to lose even more as “Reality Labs’ operating losses in 2023 will grow significantly year-over-year.”

Why You Should Care

Despite taking massive losses in building the virtual world, Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg believes in the future of the Metaverse, and patient investors will be rewarded.

Google Agrees to Compliance Reforms to Prevent Search Warrant Data Loss

On Tuesday, October 25th, the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that it has entered into an agreement with Alphabet, the parent company of Google, to resolve a dispute over the loss of data responsive to a 2016 search warrant.

According to the DOJ, the “first-of-its-kind resolution” would result in Google reforming “its legal process compliance program to ensure timely and complete responses to legal process such as subpoenas and search warrants.”

In 2016, the DOJ obtained a search warrant in California for data held by Google related to the investigation of the criminal cryptocurrency exchange BTC-e. However, Google was unable to recover data stored outside the United States.

According to Alphabet, the company has now spent over $90 million “on additional resources, systems, and staffing to implement legal process compliance program improvements.”

Flipsider:

  • Alphabet, the parent company of Google, reported weaker-than-anticipated third quarter (Q3) results, citing the crypto winter as one of the causes.

Why You Should Care

Google clarified that the agreement does not change its long-term commitment to protecting users’ privacy.
