Dogecoin price action
Dogecoin has been trading in lockstep with the broader crypto market. IntoTheBlock gives a positive correlation with Bitcoin as 0.82, which seems quite high. Its last notable change came on Jan. 14, when billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk revealed that his electric vehicle manufacturing company, Tesla, would accept payments in DOGE. DOGE rallied to as high as $0.2148 after the Tesla news on Jan. 14 but has since dropped to near $0.15. According to IntoTheBlock, despite the recent price drop, Dogecoin’s profitability is at 54%.
The price of Dogecoin rose earlier this week, with a break above $0.1594 and a high of $0.173. DOGE’s price action saw a short fade after hitting this double resistance, as some bulls who entered at $0.12 booked some profits. A break over $0.16 might offer up more room, allowing for a 25% rise to $0.25 before the next barrier is reached.
Dogecoin recently scored another major “adoption” goal as U.S. Figure Skating—the national governing body for the sport of figure skating—began to accept donations in several cryptocurrencies, including Dogecoin, after partnering with the donation platform, Engiven.
At the time of writing, Dogecoin was trading at $0.159.
