Whales pour $110 million into DOGE, betting big on meme coin surge

Whales pour $110 million into DOGE, betting big on meme coin surge

Dogecoin (DOGE) has attracted significant attention from crypto investors, with a whopping $110 million funneled into the meme coin by whales over the past 72 hours.

This influx signals a renewed interest in DOGE, which has lagged behind other meme coins in recent gains.

Crypto analyst Ali Martinez highlighted this in a recent post on X (formerly Twitter), revealing that DOGE whales have scooped over 700 million DOGE (worth approximately $112 million). 

This trend aligns with a broader shift among traders towards high-beta meme tokens like Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Pepe (PEPE).

According to Singapore-based crypto-trading firm QCP Capital, traders are shifting their focus to legacy meme coins. 

“Traders are shifting focus to higher beta meme tokens like Shiba Inu (SHIBA), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Pepe (PEPE), which have seen double-digit gains (10-20%) and are polling in the top 10 for open interest,” 

Adding to the optimism, crypto expert Michael van de Poppe projected in a May 31 X (formerly Twitter) post that Dogecoin is poised for a massive breakout in the future, potentially resulting in a price surge of approximately 566% to reach the coveted $1 mark. 

The $1 threshold has long been a target price for the meme cryptocurrency.

Market sentiment and price movements

Dogecoin, the first and one of the most popular meme coins, initially gained massive popularity and triggered a significant bullish wave within the markets. However, trader activity faded over time, reducing the token’s volatility.

This recent activity suggests that a significant price turn could be on the horizon. Dogecoin has remained below $0.18 for over a month, and a strong rebound from current levels might trigger a fresh rally. 

At the time of writing, Dogecoin is trading at $0.1576, reflecting a 1.09% decrease on the daily chart but an 18% increase on the monthly chart.

Historical price action suggests Dogecoin is slowly yet steadily heading towards its highs.

Despite closing the previous month on a bearish note, bulls have regained some dominance. The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) indicator has just turned bullish and entered the positive range, indicating that the rally may continue despite bearish interferences.

Bullish and bearish indicators

Despite a brief downturn where bullish momentum failed to breach the 24-hour high of $0.1613, DOGE found support after dipping to $0.1549. This slight recovery saw DOGE’s market capitalization hit $22.79B, although the 24-hour trading volume dropped by 34% to $536.24 million.

However, bearish risks remain. DOGE’s open interest (OI) has declined by 0.34% to $929.80 million, and derivatives volume has dropped by 39.89% to $1.08 billion. 

These indicators reflect underlying bearish sentiment but do not overshadow the substantial whale activity, which suggests a positive outlook for Dogecoin.

Therefore, while Dogecoin is striving to maintain a bullish trend, investors should remain cautious of the bearish indicators.

A fresh upswing may begin if bulls display strength at these levels, potentially driving a significant rally for the meme coin.
