The Price of DOGE is seemingly reacting positively to the worldwide attraction it garnered on r/WallStreetBets, the Reddit group that successfully caught Wall Street sellers in a short squeeze by gobbling up shares of GameStop and AMC.

Although the subreddit’s moderators have attempted to remove any attempts to pump the DOGE price, Reddit users on other channels have left subtle hints to invest in the cryptocurrency.

It’s worthy of note that the price of Dogecoin (DOGE) has not ceased from rising since the tweet was shared about 24 hours ago.
