Is The Dogecoin Slump Just A ‘Blip’ Before A Rally? Here’s What Experts Say

Is The Dogecoin Slump Just A ‘Blip’ Before A Rally? Here’s What Experts Say

Popular memecoin Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) slipped about 10% on the heels that new Twitter owner Elon Musk has reportedly halted work on the social network’s crypto wallet.

But experts say the current slump is only a “blip” before a long-term rally on the back of increased use cases for the world’s eighth largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization.

Ever since Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA (NASDAQ:TSLA)) chief Musk — dubbed the “Dogefather” due to his frequent mentions of the cryptocurrency and engagement with its community — having completed the Twitter deal last week, Doge spiked 150% in value. That’s the highest it has been since April.

Musk recently tweeted a picture of a Shiba Inu sporting a Twitter t-shirt and a pumpkin bearing the Twitter logo, which also led to renewed enthusiasm among investors.

Also, Musk has discussed the possibility of using Dogecoin as a payment method.

Experts believe that the memecoin has performed well over the long term and that there could be a massive shift from Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) mining to Dogecoin mining.

Dogecoin: Integral To Twitter’s X SuperApp Strategy “The way Musk had brought payment utility to Dogecoin and enabled it to be a part of the Tesla merchandise ecosystem, it is obvious that Dogecoin will become integral to Twitter’s X SuperApp strategy,” says Sharat Chandra, VP of Research and Strategy, at EarthID. “The current correction in Dogecoin prices is a blip. The utility of Dogecoin in Twitter’s overall Web3 wallet and SuperApp play will increase manifold in the coming months. Therefore, Dogecoin prices might shoot north in the long term.”

Correction In Prices Was Anticipated Raj Kapoor, an advisor at several blockchain companies and the Founder and Chairman of the India Blockchain Alliance said that Dogecoin remains bullish over the medium term until it sustains above $0.1200, a 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level.

Four days of a winning streak led to its price increase by over 150% and, after a rally of such magnitude, a minor correction was anticipated, he explained.

“Investors could use every dip 20-25% dip in Dogecoin for medium to long-term buying, as with Elon at the helm of Twitter, it is very likely that the crypto will be promoted in all possible ways by him. Even if reports of a crypto wallet being put on hold by Twitter were true, I suspect it is only temporary. Apart from this several new use cases for Dogecoin are expected to come up shortly,” Kapoor said.

A Golden Era For Dogecoin Anndy Lian, book Author of “NFT: From Zero to Hero,” expects to see Musk lead initiatives at Twitter that will drive the price of Dogecoin.

“Imagine enabling payment using Dogecoin for the new Twitter blue subscription at $8. This simple move for instance could push its price to new highs. This is more on the shorter term basis,” he says.

“Looking at the longer term, Dogecoin has survived and done well in multiple bull and bear cycles. Dogecoin is considerably faster and easier to mine than Bitcoin. It also has a lower mining difficulty. Based on the current price situation in the PoW mining space, there might be more miners switching to Dogecoin mining. This could be a new trend,” Lian adds.

Dogecoin Price Doubles In A Week, Analyst Say DOGE Can Hit 50 Cents By End Of 2022

Dogecoin Price Doubles In A Week, Analyst Say DOGE Can Hit 50 Cents By End Of 2022
ZINGER KEY POINTS
  • Dogecoin’s price more than doubles in a week.
  • Analysts predict huge upswing from current levels.

Popular memecoin Dogecoin has rallied by a staggering 56% over the past 24 hours and has more than doubled its price in the last week, amid Tesla chief Elon Musk’s acquisition of social networking giant Twitter.

Interestingly, Musk is widely touted to be the “Dogefather” — as he frequently mentions the cryptocurrency and engages with its community of users.

Musk has had a blow-hot blow-cold relationship with DOGE and has previously shared numerous DOGE-related memes and promoted it in tweets.

Musk’s’ The Boring Company, SpaceX, and Tesla all accept Dogecoin as payment for merchandise.

He even named SpaceX’s 2022 moon mission DOGE-1.

Dogecoin has witnessed wild swings in the past over Musk’s tweets and announcements.

His rants, however, have also gotten him in trouble.

A number of Dogecoin investors had sued Musk and his firms for $258 billion for racketeering this summer, alleging that they purposefully inflated the price of Dogecoin before allowing it to plummet.

In response, Musk stated in June that while he himself supports cryptocurrency, he never advised anyone to invest in the space.

Dogecoin is the ‘best crypto’ in the long term

Anndy Lian, book Author of “NFT: From Zero to Hero” tells Benzinga that Dogecoin’s price action has a history and is closely linked to Musk.

“Also, Dogecoin has strong community support. Dogecoin sub-Reddit has more than 2.2 million subscribers. Moreover, I think Dogecoin’s inflationary is an advantage. There are several reasons why deflationary currencies like Bitcoin might never be used as money. But Dogecoin’s tendency toward inflation ranks it among the best cryptocurrencies over the long term,” Lian says.

In the shorter term as long as Elon is still the Dogecoin, we will still see more rallies before the year ends as he lays out plans for Twitter, Lian adds.

Dogecoin at 50 cents before the new year

Aliasgar Merchant, lead developer of relations at Akash Network, a decentralized cloud platform, said the current trend reversal for Dogecoin seems sustainable, and the memecoin can easily hit the 50-cent mark before the end of the year.

“Since last August, Dogecoin has not broken the 30 U.S. cents mark, however, with the memecoin’s use cases skyrocketing with Musk’s takeover of Twitter, there is no reason it cannot reach the 50 cents mark before the new year,” he said.

He added that Dogecoin would see strong support between 0.0772 and 0.0792 levels, as data from IntoTheBlock suggests that approximately 27,000 addresses scooped up 5.89 billion DOGE tokens at these levels.

Whales lapping up Dogecoin

Meanwhile, Dogecoin Whale Alert, a Twitter account that tracks the movement of DOGE whales tweeted that 286,953,266 DOGE, worth $22,140,740 was transferred from a “Top 20 wallet” to a Binance wallet.

Dogecoin’s ascent to prominence as the tenth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization was fueled by Dogechain, a layer-2 scaling solution for Dogecoin, which recently unveiled its future roadmap.

Dogechain beginning the voting process for its coin burn fueled a bullish sentiment among DOGE holders.

Dogecoin up 40% in 3 weeks! Is there more steam left?

Dogecoin up 40% in 3 weeks! Is there more steam left?

New Delhi: For the last few weeks, Dogecoin has been the cryptocurrency to watch out for. The largest memetoken has rallied about 40 per cent in the last three weeks.

Dogecoin was flying high after the reports surfaced that Elon Musk owns a 9.2 per cent stake in the micro blogging website Twitter. This makes Musk the largest shareholder in the company.

The stake in Twitter of Elon Musk, who is fondly called as the ‘Doge Father’ by fans, propelled a strong rise in the Dogecoin prices, with speculators flocking to the memetoken.

Dogecoin hit $0.1553 levels on Tuesday, rising more than 5 per cent in the last 24 hours. Its marketcap topped the $20 billion mark, after a long period, the data from Coinmarketcap suggested.

However, the popular crypto token is trading about 77 per cent below its all-time peak of $0.6848 hit in June 2021. On a year to date basis, the crypto token has tumbled about 20 per cent.

However, market experts believe that Dogecoin is likely to continue to have positive momentum and the gains will sustain, on both technical and fundamental basis.

Vikram Subburaj, CEO of Giottus Crypto Exchange, said that Elon Musk’s Twitter investment has led Dogecoin to break out from a bearish structure with price action forming higher lows and higher highs.

“Doge has retested the trendline resistance and has held as support. Overcoming resistance at $0.175 and $0.195 will further indicate signs of strength. Doge faced rejection at these levels during its downtrend,” he added, decoding the charts.

There is no dearth of those who are expecting Dogecoin to do a ‘Twitter’ again and expecting the crypto asset to deliver solid returns in the near future. A number of players see Dogecoin as synonymous with Musk.

Echoing the similar tone, Anndy Lian, Chairman, BigONE Exchange said, “Twitter stock has rallied about 25 per cent after Elon Musk’s stake in the social media company. Speculators are expecting Dogecoin to have a similar impact if not more.”

Despite being a vocal critic of Twitter, Musk has been flirting with the possibility of having his own platform. Many now are expecting Musk to, perhaps, buyout Twitter.

A few market experts believe that Musk’s push is the major driving factor behind the rally in Dogecoin, whereas others said that is not all about Musk only. The memecoin has an army of faithful believers, who are the driving force.

“Dogecoin is tied to Musk’s actions on the positive side while it remains volatile and influenced by wider market structure in a downtrend,” Subburaj added.

The trading volumes of Dogecoin have been astronomical as the Doge token worth more than $2.57 billion exchanged hands in the last 24 hours, registering a rise of 125 per cent. There are more than 132.67 billion Dogecoins in circulation.

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin said that Dogecoin is the most popular Memecoin, and finds robust support from the mercurial figures like Elon Musk.

“The recent tweet by Elon in support of the German travel site ‘GetYourGuide’ announcing that Dogecoin will be accepted as a mode of payment sparked investor interest in Doge,” he added.

Market experts advise investors to be cautious while investing the memecoin. Dogecoin remains a volatile investment with no fundamental utility, they say.

“We advise investors to stick to a certain set of crypto assets according to their risk appetite given no possibility of offsetting losses from one crypto to another in the new tax regime,” said Subburaj from Giottus.

Lian from BigONE suggested investors look for the long term. “For those who are dealing with derivatives, monitor the price carefully and start off with lower leverages,” he cautioned the traders.
