Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk’s recent tweets about Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) may have helped boost the meme cryptocurrency’s price but Dogecoin knockoffs named after Musk’s pet dog Floki have fallen after recent strong gains.
What Happened: Flokinomics (CRYPTO: FLOKIN), which calls itself the “best rebase token known to man,” fell 25% over the last 24 hours to $0.0001439 at press time.
The new token, which is just over a week old, also lost 26.1% against apex cryptocurrency Bitcoin and tumbled 28.5% against Ethereum during the 24-hour period.
