SEC will take a closer look at the activities of Elon Musk regarding DogeCoin –

The popular Twitter profile, CryptoWhale, has just published a post that may scare DogeCoin (DOGE) investors and … Elon Musk himself. He suggests the SEC will start an investigation into the Tesla CEO. It’s about his tweets on DOGE.

It is worth noting that the above message has not yet been published on the SEC website. The fact that this may be true is evidenced by the fact that at the end of January the commission warned against investing in assets that are promoted in social media.

This was evident during the GameStop events, which were pumped up a lot thanks to the joint initiative of the hurdles from the internet forum.

In the case of Musk, however, we are talking about something else. It turns out that one person has such a big influence on the markets that he is able to manipulate them with one tweet.
