A couple of days ago, Twitter CEO Elon Musk changed the blue-bird logo of the platform to the ‘Doge’ meme without any formal explanation. As a result, Dogecoin (DOGE) price grew by leaps and bounds. However, as Twitter removed the ‘Doge’ logo and restored its original blue-bird icon, DOGE emerged to be the biggest loser in the market, with a 24-hour loss of over 8 percent, further proving the overall volatility of the crypto sector. Most crypto coins, including the likes of Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), and others landed in the reds across the board.
The global crypto market cap stood at $1.18 trillion at the time of writing, registering a 24-hour dip of 0.62 percent.

What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario
Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Over the past 24 hours, Bitcoin traded steady in anticipation of the release of the US non-farm payrolls data later today and due to the extended weekend. Despite attempting to break through a significant resistance level at $28,500, the bulls were unsuccessful and the value of BTC dropped to $27,800. Currently, the currency is in a consolidation phase at $28,000. Conversely, Ethereum remained above the $1,800 level. Meanwhile, Dogecoin experienced a significant decrease in value of almost 8 percent after Twitter removed its logo from the platform’s homepage.”
Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin said, “In the short-term if Bitcoin manages to break above the $28,250 resistance level, it could signal an uptrend and potentially lead to further price appreciation towards the $28,900 or $29,250 levels. However, if Bitcoin fails to break this level and experiences selling pressure, it could lead to further declines towards the $26,500 and $25,500 support levels.”
Shivam Thakral, the CEO of BuyUCoin, said, “The crypto market remained flat due to the long weekend for Good Friday and easter. Bitcoin is comfortably sitting on strong support at the $28,000 level while Ethereum is exchanging hands at $1,877. DOGE remained the best-performing crypto this week due to Twitter euphoria. The CPI data which is slated to be released next week may shake the crypto market in the coming weeks.”
