As a result of the news, Twitter stock rose, nearing Musk's $54.20 acquisition price. Dogecoin experienced a similar rise, climbing from lows of $0.059 on Oct. 25 to highs of $0.069 at the time of writing.

According to Bloomberg, the most recent developments might indicate that Musk was about to complete the transaction before the deadline of Oct. 28 set by the court.

Meanwhile, the CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao, has stated that he intends to support Elon Musk's proposed $44 billion acquisition of Twitter Inc., despite possible worries from Washington regarding the support of foreign investors.

Changpeng Zhao responded, "I think so," when asked if he would honor his financial agreement with Musk. As part of its plan to bring social media and news websites into the Web3 era, Binance said in May that it had committed $500 million to Musk's proposed acquisition of Twitter.

Dogecoin developer speaks on beneficial upgrade

Dogecoin is set to be in the public eye if the Twitter deal is successful, as Elon Musk floated the idea of using it as a form of payment on social media.

Musk, a Dogecoin proponent, cheered Dogecoin's most recent core update by tweeting "upgrades." According to Dogecoin developer Shafil Alam, "Adding TorV3 support remains an important protocol upgrade for Dogecoin."

Explaining what the upgrade entails, Dogecoin-focused Twitter account Mishaboar, wrote, "The devs are picking code from old Bitcoin Core commits, integrating it within Dogecoin Core-experienced Bitcoin developers could certainly provide help. TorV3 allows privacy and anonymity to node operators and increases network resilience against targeted node attacks."
