Dogecoin Millionaire Is ‘Going To Start Buying Up As Much Cardano As Humanely Possible’

Published

on

In a recent interview, Glauber Contessoto, the man who invested all of his savings (around $250,000) in Dogecoin ($DOGE) on February 5, said that he is going to start investing in Cardano ($ADA).

On April 22, the 33-year-old man, who works at a music company in Los Angles, told CNBC’s “Make It” program that after learning about the meme-based cryptocurrency on Reddit, on February 5, when $DOGE was trading around 4.5 cents, he invested around $250,000 in the popular cryptocurrency.

Contessoto said that there were three main reasons why he decided to invest in Dogecoin: (1) he loved the Dogecoin community on Reddit; (2) he liked the “Shiba Inu” meme; and (3) Elon Musk’s Dogecoin advocacy.

Contessoto told CNBC that since “he didn’t have disposable income to buy dogecoin,” he “not only used all his savings, but he also sold all the stock he owned, including shares of Tesla and Uber, and invested on margin by borrowing money from Robinhood via the app.”

On April 16, he took to Reddit to make a post titled “Hey guys I just became a Dogecoin millionaire” in subreddit “/r/dogecoin”.

Back on April 22, Contessoto told CNBC that he planned to HODL until his $DOGE position is worth $10 million:

My plan is, once I hit $10 million, then I’ll take out 10%,” he says. In his opinion, “this stuff is going to continue to grow.

Well, in his most recent interview with CNBC on August 26, Contessoto says that although he still has no plans for selling any of his $DOGE holdings, he wants to use as much as of his disposable income as possible to buy $ADA:

I’m going to start buying up as much Cardano as humanely possible with every bit of money I start making from now on.

According to a tweet he posted yesterday, the other cryptocurrencies that Contessoto is bullish on for the next five years are Ethefreum, Bitcoin, and XRP.

He went on to tell CNBC that he is going to wait for “a massive dip” before he starts investing in $ADA. He also mentioned that he is “going to be the biggest Cardano supporter.”

Dogecoin network update to boost mainstream adoption, trigger next DOGE rally

Published

on

  • Dogecoin can now be spent at 1,704 merchants, nearly three times last year.
  • Co-founder Billy Markus argues that if all major miners and node operators update to version 1.14.4, fees can be lowered by default.
  • Dogecoin ranks in top 10 cryptocurrencies mentioned the most on Twitter, social dominance of the memecoin increases.

The Shiba-Inu-themed cryptocurrency’s utility is rising with news of AMC’s adoption of DOGE as a payment method. Traders are now anticipating a reduction in transaction fees and a recovery in DOGE. 

Dogecoin update to reduce fees, likely to trigger breakout in DOGE

The Dogecoin core has been regularly updated over the past month. In August, a new version of Dogecoin Core, v1.14.4 was released to improve performance and lower recommended fees. 

The recommended update is not installed by all node operators. Its installation would enable future fee reductions in the DOGE network. Billy Markus, co-founder of Dogecoin tweeted about this recently,

Once all major miners update to the latest version, transaction fee is expected to reduce 1000x for relay and 100x for mining. This is the first step towards lowering the recommended fee for DOGE, another network adaptation is expected to follow. 

With regular updates in its ecosystem, the altcoin’s utility is on the rise. Nearly 600 merchants accepted DOGE payments in January 2020, the number has climbed to 1704 since then. 

The altcoin’s rising acceptance becomes further evident from its rising social dominance. Over the past week, DOGE ranked in “top 10 most mentioned cryptocurrencies” on Twitter. A rise in social media mentions is followed by a rally in the altcoin. Analysts expect DOGE to recover, the altcoin is struggling after price was rejected at key resistance level.

@venturefounder, a cryptocurrency analyst and trader, is of the opinion that even the most resilient memecoin, DOGE, is losing its dominance. The analyst predicts that there is a wait ahead of the next “perfect storm,” meaning a surge in Shiba-Inu-themed cryptocurrency’s price.

FXStreet analysts have predicted a drop in DOGE price to $0.15.

Dogecoin price action has continued to trade in a bearish momentum over the past week. After a strong decline on the 7th of September, DOGE/USD saw consolidation last week above the $0.23 mark.

However, on Monday, DOGE finally broke lower and rapidly dropped to $0.20. From there, a retest of the $).23 previous support as resistance was seen during the middle of the week.

Bears took over the Dogecoin price action again on Friday, resulting in another drop to the $0.20 support. Since further downside could not be reached again today, we expect that bears are finally exhausted, and Dogecoin is up for a significant reversal next week.

Dogecoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Dogecoin price analysis is bullish for today as another rejection for further downside was seen earlier today as the $0.20 mark was tested again. Therefore, we expect DOGE/USD to increase over the next 24 hours and potentially move past the $0.23 swing high early next week.
