At 6:00 UTC, Dogecoin (DOGE) hit $0.73 according to CoinMarketCap, before a slight price correction. At the time of filing this report, DOGE is trading at $0.665, with a 7.10% price upsurge in the last 24 hours.

The current notable surge has been attributed to the upcoming Saturday Night Live, the comedy show to be hosted by the billionaire tech expert, Elon Musk. It’s slated to air at 8:30 pm Pacific Time or 3.30 am UTC.

At $0.73, the market capitalization of Dogecoin (DOGE) reached $95.3 billion, which was just 1.6% less than the market capitalization of Binance Coin (BNB).
