Dogecoin Co-Founder Names Two Things He Believes Will Help DOGE

Published

on

DOGE co-founder Billy Markus has opined on two things that will likely improve Dogecoin and help it attract new users and fans

Billy Markus, a software engineer who co-founded DOGE together with Jackson Palmer back in 2013, has taken to Twitter to suggest two things that, in his view, will help Dogecoin to become a more widely used cryptocurrency and possibly attract more users into the ecosystem.

“Doge needs NFTs and ETH bridge”

According to Markus, Dogecoin will improve when a bridge between DOGE and Ethereum is completed.

The second thing is that the most popular meme cryptocurrency needs platforms that trade non-fungible tokens (NFT), such as Opensea, and that will agree to accept DOGE compatible with Ethereum as payment.

At the moment, NFTs are in high demand in the crypto community with crypto used for purchasing them, Markus tweeted, adding that using DOGE for NFT purchases will turn it into a coin with high utility.

Vitalik Buterin hopes Doge will switch to PoS

As reported by U.Today earlier this month, on Sept. 2, a co-founder of the second-biggest blockchain platform, Ethereum, tweeted that he hoped Dogecoin would switch to the proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus algorithm—perhaps using the Ethereum code to do that. However, he believes that Doge should maintain its annual issuance of five billion coins via proof of work (PoW).

That was Vitalik’s response to a question from The Three Arrows Capital founder, Zhu Su, who asked him to suggest ideas about how Ethereum and Doge could collaborate in the near future.

Aside from that, Buterin suggested that the co-founders of Dogecoin could put its massive emission of DOGE into some sort of a DAO that “funds global public goods.”

Buterin emphasized that this step would fit pretty well with Dogecoin’s “non-greedy wholesome ethos.”

As reported earlier, Vitalik Buterin joined Dogecoin’s advisory board. After it happened, his father, Dmitry Buterin, tweeted that the presence of Vitalik on the board may make DOGE a better coin.

Dogecoin price could see 400% gains if DOGE holders band together

Published

on

  • Dogecoin price is moving sideways after a breakout from a descending triangle pattern.
  • A potential 400% move to $1.08 will face obstacles up to $0.35, beyond which, DOGE should rally swiftly.
  • On-chain metrics are hinting at an increase in large transactions and a paradigm shift in the nature of holders.

Dogecoin price is at a crucial tipping point in its evolution with the potential for it to trigger a massive volatile move. Hurdles exist, however, that will make it difficult to reach its intended target, of a new all-time high.

Dogecoin price at make or break levels

Dogecoin price has set up three lower highs and two higher lows, which when connected using trend lines reveals a descending triangle. This technical formation forecasts a 361% upswing to $1.09, obtained by adding the distance between the first swing high and low to the breakout point at $0.24.

DOGE breached the triangle’s hypotenuse on October 18 at $0.24. Since this point, the meme coin has struggled to move higher but failed.

Interestingly, Dogecoin price has been moving sideways and has retested the $0.193 support level thrice since August 3 with the latest revisit on November 26. This created a triple-tap setup, a bullish technical formation that forecasts a reversal in the trend.

Since Shiba Inu has stolen DOGE’s spotlight, things have been calm and consolidative for the original meme coin. If the buying pressure increases, however, pushing Dogecoin price to pierce through the $0.29 level to $0.35, and it produces a daily close above it, it will trigger an uptrend.

In this scenario, it will allow market makers to collect the sell-stop liquidity resting above $0.35. This development will allow DOGE to create a platform for the next leg-up at $0.44.

Clearing this hurdle will open the path to retest the current all-time high for Dogecoin price at $0.74. According to this prediction, DOGE could extend its bull rally to tag $1.09, its intended target. Due to the recent downswing, this upswing will represent a 400% gain from the current position at $0.22.

As mentioned earlier, Shiba Inu seems to have siphoned off the hype, investors, and capital from Dogecoin, affecting its price, but things seem to be reverting, with some on-chain metrics suggesting a flip of the narrative is possible.

On-chain metrics predict a bright future

Looking at the transaction data tells a story about the nature of investors. Large transactions track transfers that are $100,000 or more. An increase in this metric serves as a proxy for institutions and their investment thesis.

Over the past six months, the number of such transactions has increased by 70.7% from 1,570 to 2,680. This uptick in the metric suggests that high networth investors are starting to take interest in DOGE at the current price levels.

While the above metric provides an insight into the potential investments, IntoTheBlock’s Global In/Out of the Money (GIOM) model shows where significant blockades are present. This fundamental index reveals that the DOGE will face formidable challenges ranging from $0.30 to $0.34. Here roughly 500,000 addresses that purchased 47 billion DOGE are “Out of the Money” and are likely to sell to breakeven, increasing the selling pressure.

If buyers overcome this uptick in sell-side momentum and produce a daily close above $0.35, however, it will clear the daily demand mentioned above. This move will also open the path up for market makers to collect liquidity.

All in all, this on-chain metric also promotes a bullish idea for DOGE with a contingency that the bullish momentum pushes the meme coin above $0.35.

While the on-chain metrics described above serve as a tailwind for the bullish thesis, the new addresses joining the network add a dent to it. This metric shows that new users joining the Dogecoin network over the past six months have declined by 34.7% from 34,320 to 22,380.

This reduction indicates that despite the capital inflows observed in the large transaction metric, a majority of investors are not yet interested in DOGE. Hence, this divergence between the new addresses and the large transaction chart paints indecision.

The discrepancy noticed above can be explained in the holders’ chart which shows a paradigm shift. In November 2020, the composition of DOGE investors was 74.2% holders (1+ years), 18.6% Cruisers (1 month to 1 year) and 7.2% traders (less than a month). As of November 2021, this composition has changed and shows that cruisers are currently dominating with a 50.7% stake, while holders have dropped to 42.1%. 

This drastic decrease in the long-term holders suggests that these investors have been distributing their holdings over the past year ie., indicating increased sell-side pressure, which adds credence to DOGE’s lackluster performance over the period.

In summary, if long-term holders stop offloading their DOGE holdings, investors can expect Dogecoin price to start inflating.

On the other hand, if the selling pressure increases, knocking Dogecoin price below the $0.193 support level, it will lead to a retest of the descending triangle’s base at $0.16. If the bears produce a daily candlestick below this crucial barrier, it will open up DOGE to a massive 45% crash to $0.09, with a potential pitstop at $0.12.

Ethereum and Dogecoin Primed for Breakouts As Crypto Markets Gear Up for Bullish December, According to Analyst Justin Bennett

Published

on

Crypto analyst Justin Bennett says that December could bring rallies to the digital asset markets, with Ethereum (ETH) and Dogecoin (DOGE) potentially at the forefront.

The analyst tells his 91,000 Twitter followers that the dollar index (DXY), which compares the USD to a basket of other fiat currencies, is flashing a bullish signal for the crypto markets.

A weaker DXY often signals higher prices for many assets. Bennett notes that DXY may have just had a failed breakout, and could now be facing downward momentum.

“DXY looks good for a crypto rally heading into December.

Friday’s close back inside this channel indicates weakness. Now for a close below 95.80.

Let’s see.”

Bennett also has his eye on the chart for the total market cap of crypto (TOTAL). According to him, TOTAL is nearing the end of a large bullish descending wedge. He also notes a divergence between the rising relative strength index (RSI) and the downward price movement. A rising RSI during a downtrend is often interpreted as a hint of a bullish reversal.

“TOTAL falling wedge and bullish divergence developing on the intraday charts.

Something to keep an eye on.”

Looking at Ethereum, the analyst says that next month looks good for the world’s second-largest crypto. Bennett says ETH is “poised to do well in December,” and could already be jostling for a breakout, as long as it sees more volume.

“ETH approaching a breakout level.

Also joining the rallies, according to Bennett, is leading memecoin Dogecoin (DOGE). He says DOGE is in the middle of a breakout, with its first key resistance at $0.25, and a final resistance level at all-time highs above $0.75.

“DOGE is breaking out.”
