The cryptocurrency market is still reeling from the fallout from the FTX collapse, and Dogecoin (DOGE), one of Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) and Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s favorite tokens, is under pressure as the community appears to support his resignation as the social network’s CEO.

Indeed, Musk posted a poll on Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) asking the community if he should step down as CEO and promising to respect the results. Out of over 16.7 million votes cast as of December 19, the majority (57.6%) of poll participants said ‘Yes,’ according to press time.

With a market capitalization of $10.36 billion, the meme dog coin remains the eighth-largest cryptocurrency by this metric, having previously displaced Cardano (ADA) from this position on December 19, according to CoinMarketCapdata.
