According to Google Trends, the number of searches with the words “Bitcoin is dead,”caused by the dramatic collapse of the cryptocurrency market and the huge amount of clickbait news about the “death” of the crypto flagship, has grown to record levels, so now the query “Bitcoin” has received the maximum rating in the search engine — 100. It is noteworthy that according to the same statistics, the “death” of Bitcoin during 2022 occurred at least 15 times.

The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, does not miss a single opportunity to support his pet, the Dogecoin meme-crypto. So at the Qatar Economic Forum, held in the capital of the country, the Doha city, a popular businessman said: “I intend to personally support Dogecoin, because I just know a lot of people who are not that wealthy who have encouraged me to buy and support Dogecoin—so I’m responding to those people.” In an interview with Bloomberg, Musk said that when he visited his SpaceX and Tesla facilities, employees personally asked him to support the meme digital coin, and this is the main reason for his attitude towards it. Recall that both key companies of the entrepreneur announced last year that they would accept payments in Dogecoin for some goods. However, earlier this week, Bloomberg reported that Musk, Tesla and SpaceX, were facing a $258 billion lawsuit in which accusers allege that Musk was part of a racketeering scheme organized to support cryptocurrency. Apparently for this reason, at the Qatari forum, the businessman said: "I have never said that people should invest in crypto… SpaceX and Tesla and myself did all buy some Bitcoin, but it's a small percentage of our total cash assets, so not all that significant."
