Dogecoin’s Uphill Journey
Tesla CEO, Elon Musk’s favorite cryptocurrency, Dogecoin, took the crypto market by storm after witnessing a whopping 89.5 percent surge in its price over the last seven days. Following a video on TikTok posted by James Galante which suggested that everyone could get rich by investing a mere $25 in DOGE. Half a million views later, the coin started an upward trajectory.
As seen in the chart, the price of the altcoin had been trading for a very flimsy price throughout the year, however, the latest spike pushed its price to a high of $0.00522. At the time of writing, the coin was trading at $0.00448 with an 11 percent increase in its price over the last 24-hours.
While some believe that DOGE could be prey to TikTok’s pump and dump, a few others speculate that the coin’s price is destined to go uphill.
