DOGE Price To Fall?
The memecoin’s price has been following a steady downward path in the last one week, in line with the crypto market reaction to the Fed announcement. However, the DOGE whales appear to be consolidating for a price drop ahead of the New Year’s week. A recent DOGE whale transaction showed the transfer of 3.80 billion DOGE tokens, raising speculation of massive price action. This gains more prominence with the timing of the transaction, as the New Year and Christmas period showing big price action historically.
Meanwhile, it remains to be seen if DOGE price will come back to three month low level of $0.60. As of writing, the memecoin’s price stands at $0.07413, down 5.09% in the last 24 hours, according to price tracking platform CoinMarketCap.
