It comes after other celebrity endorsements for the memecoin by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Shark Tank star and billionaire Mark Cuban, rapper Snoop Dogg, rocker Gene Simmons and even celebrity chef Guy Fieri.
According to a CNBC analyst, the rise of Dogecoin in the past week is due to the upcoming presentation stint of Elon Musk on SNL this weekend.

New York Goes Green
Meanwhile Bitcoin miners are being targeted in New York as one of the biggest cities in the US goes green. With local congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as its prime example, it was clear that any new politician in the region would have to outbid het green new deal in order to gain sympathy from the public.
Establishes a moratorium on the operation of cryptocurrency mining centers; provides that operation of a cryptocurrency mining center shall only be authorized following completion of a full generic environmental impact statement review and a finding that such center will not adversely affect the state greenhouse gas emission targets in the climate leadership and community protection act of 2019; provides for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof.
The proposal will now be discussed by the New York Senate.
After a previous run-in between the city of New York and Tether, which was fined $18 million, this is already the second time this year that the Big Apple is saying no to crypto. Miami on the other hand looks much friendlier.
