The Charging Bull bronze statue was put in front of Wall Street back in 1987 as a symbol of America’s resilience after that year’s massive stock market crash. It was created by artist Arturo Di Modica, according to Benzinga.

When another Twitter user asked Markus what was his interpretation of the statue, he said he believes it means “Shiba don’t fear Wall Street.” Over the last few months, the price of DOGE has been surging, partly thanks to tweets from Tesla CEO Elon Musk joking about the cryptocurrency. Other celebrities, including Kiss singer Gene Simmons and billionaire Mark Cuban, also tweeted about it.

The price of DOGE has over the last 30 days outperformed both BTC and ETH, and only started dropping after Musk appeared as a guest host on U.S. TV’s comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live. During his appearance, he said Dogecoin is “a hustle.”

Dogecoin’s rally has seen other meme-themed cryptocurrencies appear. Shiba Inu (SHIB) is a notable example. The Ethereum-based token has seen its price surge after being listed on major cryptocurrency trading platforms, even as exchanges warned the coin “poses a higher than normal risk.”

As CryptoGlobe reported, earlier today Musk asked his nearly 55 million followers on Twitter whether Tesla should add Dogecoin as a payment method. Respondents overwhelmingly picked “yes.”
