Influencer Gokhshtein bets on meme coins during next bull run
Former US congressional candidate and now entrepreneur, founder of Gokhshtein Media, David Gokhshtein, has again expressed his support for major meme coins – Dogecoin and Shiba Inu.
However, in the tweets prior to that he also said he is long on Bitcoin, Ethereum and thinks that “XRP is coming whether you like it or not”.
“DOGE and SHIB to go parabolic”, influencer believes
David Gokhshtein has been bullish on Dogecoin since last year and been supporting Shiba Inu with his multifold tweets throughout 2022. The key note of his tweeting about meme coins is that both Doge and SHIB have brought a lot of new people into the crypto space and Bitcoin in particular and will bring a lot more in the future.
This is what his recent tweet was about too. On October 17, he tweeted that despite his arguing about meme coins frequently, they eventually are going to “lead new retail buyers into the crypto industry”.
In one of his earlier tweets this fall, Gokhshtein confessed that he regretted not going into SHIB in a big way, sharing that it was the “Dogecoin killer” narrative that stopped him from doing it.
Now, he believes that these meme coins are likely to go parabolic when the next bull run in the crypto market begins.

Biggest fan of Dogecoin, Tesla boss Elon Musk, who dreams of extending human life to Mars within his lifetime, became the first business man of level that high who adopted DOGE and Shiba Inu, along with other cryptos, for payments.
In January this year, he added an option of DOGE payments to buy Tesla merch in the company’s online store. First it was done as an experiment and then continued on a constant basis, In spring, SpaceX and then later The Boring Company joined it, selling merch and allowing to charge Tesla cars using Dogecoin.
As for SHIB, in October Musk, proving the reputation of an eccentric billionaire, released his first perfume called “Burnt Hair”. The collector’s product in a limited amount was created by The Boring Company of Musk. Thanks to a collaboration with BitPay, users can pay the $104 for a bottle of this perfume in SHIB, Bitcoin, DOGE and other digital currencies.
More than 20,000 bottles of Musk’s “Burnt Hair” has been sold by now.
