Elon Buying Twitter - Impact on Dogecoin

John Barry | Tue Oct 04 2022

The latest news is that Elon Musk is going ahead and buying Twitter instead of proceeding with a trail against the Twitter board of directors in a Delaware Court which was scheduled to start on Oct 17th.  

"This is a clear sign that Musk recognized heading into Delaware Court that the chances of winning vs. Twitter board was highly unlikely and this $44 billion deal was going to be completed one way or another,” - Dan Ives of Wedbush Securities

Based on information that was leaked in the past few months, one of the key plans Musk has for Twitter is to shift the business model from advertising towards to a subscription model and to adopt a money transfer service.

Musk’s love of Dogecoin is well know due to his many favorable tweets about it. He even brought up Dogecoin when he hosted “Saturday Night Live”.

With the idea of Twitter having a money transfer service one has to think he may want to be using Dogecoin for this.   He could follow the model used by Ripple Labs for using XRP as transfer model for financial institutions.

The crypto market seems positive to this idea as Doge is up since the announcement and is showing strong technical indicators.
