The post Dogecoin’s Popularity Wanes As Rivals Emerge: What Next For DOGE? appeared first on Coinpedia Fintech News
Dogecoin, the beloved cryptocurrency heavily supported by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, has continued to remain in the spotlight since its inception in 2013. However, the once-soaring meme coin has recently experienced some turbulence in its journey to the moon.
Dogecoin Struggles as Other Memecoins Emerge
Trading around $0.084 on Friday, the digital currency is down approximately 5.39 percent this week, despite a 20 percent spike year-to-date. The rise of other meme coins, including $PEPE and $WOJAK, has significantly shrunk Dogecoin’s investor community. Despite the decline, Dogecoin remains one of the most traded and liquid digital assets, with approximately 5.4 million holders, according to on-chain data.
Whale Traders Continue to Rule the Dogecoin Market
Whale traders, who make significant transactions involving millions of dollars, continue to be the biggest movers of Dogecoin. Several transactions involving millions of dollars have been processed on the Dogecoin chain in the past 24 hours alone.
50% Drop Around The Corner?
In a recent Twitter video, veteran cryptocurrency trader CrediBull Crypto warned that Dogecoin and other altcoins could drop by as much as 50 percent while Bitcoin continues to pump to ATH (all-time high). According to the analyst, cash flow from altcoins to Bitcoin could increase before the end of the year, leading to a potential drop in altcoin prices.
“We can certainly go higher from here first- but until/unless we flip.16-ish I think sub .05 is still possible. Some have asked, how does DOGE fall 50% with the $BTC bottom already in?”
Dogecoin’s Future: To Invest or Not to Invest?
While Dogecoin has been highly successful in recent times, its future remains uncertain. If Dogecoin were to drop to $0.05, it would mean a 20x increase to a dollar, a target set by most investors, including Elon Musk.
With the recent warning from CrediBull Crypto, investors are left to ponder the risks versus rewards of investing in Dogecoin.
