Transactions in excess of $100,000 serve as a barometer of the activities of “whales,” or huge investors of the meme-inspired cryptocurrency.

Whales can be wealthy people or institutional investors such as hedge funds or banks.

When Twitter revealed that its board of directors had approved Musk’s $44 billion acquisition bid, the price of Dogecoin increased by as much as 27 percent, reaching a day high of 16.5 cents. It has already cooled off and is now worth roughly 13 cents.
