- Dogecoin was the most popular cryptocurrency on Google searches in the U.S for the past year, clocking at twice those of Bitcoin.
- Shiba Inu also did well, coming in at fourth place after Bitcoin and Ethereum as the new generation of cryptocurrencies take on the titans.
Have you been Googling about Dogecoin nonstop this year, from news making headlines to price movements to celebrity links? Well, you’re not alone. A new study shows that Dogecoin was the most popular cryptocurrency for U.S residents, emerging first in twice as many states as Bitcoin. Another meme coin, Shiba Inu, was fourth as the new generation of tokens seems to be getting traction at the expense of the veterans.
Dogecoin has had one hell of a year. It has been on the headlines every other day, whether it’s for price surges or because the world’s richest man is talking about integrating it into his electric car company’s payment systems. Celebrities have jumped on its hype, from rappers Snoop Dogg, Lil’ Yachty and Soulja Boy to YouTuber Jake Paul to Shark Tank star and billionaire investor Mark Cuban.
It, therefore, comes as little surprise that DOGE was the most searched cryptocurrency in the U.S. According to a study done by The Advisor Coach, Dogecoin topped the searches in 23 of the 50 U.S states, an impressive statistic for a cryptocurrency that was only meant to be a joke and to poke fun at people who were too serious about Bitcoin years ago.
Bitcoin came in at a distant second with just 10 states, less than half the number by Dogecoin. Ethereum with 8 states was third, with yet another meme coin, Shiba Inu, trailing closely at 7. Cardano and Lithium both picked up one state each.
Hype, price and FOMO push Dogecoin and Shiba Inu popularity
Doge’s popularity spread across the U.S, as the chart above shows. It was the most popular cryptocurrency in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Illinois, Wisconsin, North and South Dakota and Arizona.
Bitcoin topped the charts in Connecticut, Alaska, Mississippi and New Hampshire. Ethereum was most popular in states such as Georgia, Louisiana, Ohio and Virginia.
Cardano picked up the top spot in one state, which (not by coincidence) is where Charles Hoskinson resides – that’s “always warm, always sunny, sometimes Colorado,” as the Cardano founder always describes it.
The most surprising name on the chart was Lithium, which was the top coin in Pennsylvania. Lithium is trading at $0.02867 at press time with a $20 million market cap, making its appearance on the list ahead of titans like Binance Coin, XRP, Litecoin and Solana all the more curious.
Shiba Inu was most popular in some of the most important states in the U.S, including Texas, California and the financial capital of the world, New York.
Dogecoin bears leave the scene as DOGE rises towards $0.24
- Dogecoin price stabilizes near its final support structure.
- Selling pressure abates as hints of strong buying activate.
- Explosive bullish entry present on the Point and Figure chart.
Dogecoin price holds steady near the $0.18 value area, halting any further downside movement. Buyers appear to be showing up and preparing Dogecoin for a big launch higher.
Dogecoin price action perfectly positioned for a move to $0.24
Dogecoin price action has been a cause of concern for many bulls and long-term hodlers after the Saturday flash-crash. Fears of continued pressure south and a possible move below $0.10 appear to be fading. Sellers are unable or unwilling to push Dogecoin below Dogecoin’s final support zone.
The overall structure of Dogecoin price is a bearish continuation setup – a bearish pennant. At its present position, Dogecoin price is at the apex of deciding whether a bear or bull market will begin for Dogecoin.
A massively bullish entry signal is now present on the $0.002/3-box Reversal Point and Figure chart. The theoretical long trade is a buy stop at $0.186, a stop loss at $0.176, and a profit target at $0.240.
DOGE/USDT $0.002/3-box Reversal Point and Figure chart
The entry is based on a breakout from a quadruple-top bull flag formed immediately after Dogecoin converted into a bull market on the Point and Figure chart. The entry and follow-up buying is essential to deny bears any further control of Dogecoin price direction.
However, a continuation move lower is not entirely out of the cards. If Dogecoin drops to $0.172, that would cause a break of a triple-bottom and return Dogecoin to a bear market on this Point and Figure chart. It would invalidate the long entry and any near-term bullish momentum.
Google Trends Data: ‘Dogecoin’ and ‘Ethereum Price‘ Amongst Top 10 Most Searched News
As the crypto market began to pick up its bullish pace again, despite the most unexpected crash last weekend, it has become evident that virtual currencies are here to stay. However, surprisingly, in a recently published list by Google trends, it was determined that Ethereum and Dogecoin were more news worthy than the OG Bitcoin. According to Google Trends list of the most searched news across the world, ‘Dogecoin’ and ‘Ethereum Price’ secured its place amongst the top ten.
Last weekend, in the most unanticipated crypto market crash, the decentralized industry was hit with its highest liquidation recorded in past 15months, with more than $2.5 billion worth of leveraged positions getting liquidated in merely 24-hours. Furthermore, the market cap dropped by nearly 20% with the loss of over $500 billion. However, the crypto sphere is back on track after its flash sale. While eminent players like El Salvador, bought more of Bitcoin, Ethereum Price conveniently exceeded its $4k mark, while Bitcoin continues to struggle in breaking the $50k bracket.
Ethereum L2 Scaling Solutions
With Ethereum’s upcoming L2 scene heating up, the ultimate alt-coin is gaining more traction with each passing day. According to the Ethereum founder, Vitalik Buterin, the Layer 2 scaling solutions on the Ethereum network will revolutionise the crypto sphere by facilitating the safest and most sustainable way to scale Ethereum while preserving decentralization.
Earlier this October, Buterin spoke at the 2021 Shanghai International Blockchain Week, claiming that Ether’s L2 will resolve the issues of scalability. He noted that in lieu of the ongoing non-fungible tokens (NFTs) frenzy, together with the fierce growth of decentralized finance (Defi) on the Ethereum network, the mainstream blockchain has become overcrowded, causing problems like high transaction fees. However, he suggested blockchains and NFTs to transfer to L2 to counter scalability and high gas fees issues.
Both, Dogecoin and AMC Stock in Top 10
While Ethereum may be the ultimate alt-coin, Dogecoin is the original meme token. Apart from being Tesla CEO, Elon Musk’s favourite, DOGE has established itself in the decentralised industry and found a spot above several Alt-coins will complex technology.

Recently, AMC announced to accept payments in both, Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, making history for commercial giants in crypto.
