Dogecoin was quoted as low as $0.416 on crypto exchange Binance, down 36 percent from levels around $0.65 before Elon Musk called it a 'hustle' during his guest-host spot on the "Saturday Night Live."
XRP, the third-biggest cryptocurrency, was last down 18.7 percent at an intra-day low of $0.20, its lowest since July.
The fall followed a sudden plunge last week that shook bitcoin out of a period of relative stability, where prices had hovered around the $6,500 mark for several months.
