Dogecoin Nosedives Following Bitcoin’s Market Shake-up, Investors on Tenterhooks


In a wave of volatility that has shaken the crypto market, Dogecoin, the prime meme coin, has encountered a drop of over 6% within the last 24 hours, as per the information collated from CoinMarketCap. The cause of this downward trend seemingly has direct connections to the developments in Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency.

Echoing Bitcoin’s price fluctuations, Dogecoin, too, witnessed a marked decrease from over $66,000 to below $64,000 in the span of 24 hours. It is commonplace for altcoins, such as DOGE, to mirror the movement of Bitcoin. Just like the parent ship sailing on a choppy sea, its fleet of smaller boats, dotting around its wake, heave in time with its turbulent dance. Currently, the global cryptocurrency world has seen a decline of over 4%.

A range of factors are believed to have contributed to Bitcoin’s recent plunge — a set back that has, by default, impacted Dogecoin and other such altcoins. According to speculations, a notable element has been the anticipation surrounding the release of the Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) inflation data slated for April 26. Although predictions from the Cleveland Fed suggest that the PCE data would indicate a slowdown in inflation, cryptocurrency investors are still treading on thin ice. The unease revolves around the March Consumer Price Index (CPI) data which didn’t demonstrate any disinflationary trends.

Investors remain on edge regarding the volatile situation in the Middle East as well. While the tension between Israel and Iran seems to have temporarily eased, the apprehension that the situation could spiral out of control remains. Its potential influence on the crypto market is substantial, demonstrated through past events and remains a significant deterrent for investors.

Focusing on the Spot Bitcoin ETFs, which have been a significant determining factor in the crypto market, the inflow pace appears to have slowed down during this month. The dwindling demand has contributed to the underwhelming performance of cryptocurrencies like Dogecoin. This downslide reflects the significant volume of liquidity these investment funds brought to the market at their peak.

In an interesting turn, BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, reportedly recorded zero daily inflows into its iShares Bitcoin Trust for the first time on April 24, underscoring how dire the situation is.

According to the recent analysis by crypto expert, CrediBULL Crypto, Dogecoin might be set for further price drops, even if the overall crypto market starts to recuperate. The prediction revolves around the point where Bitcoin’s move towards $100,000 will drain liquidity from altcoins such as Dogecoin. Meanwhile, another crypto analyst, Kevin, contradicts this view. He insists there is no indication on the monthly timeframe to suggest that Dogecoin would fall to as low as $0.50.

One thing is definite, Dogecoin, currently fluttering below $0.15, finds itself in an uncertain market environment, causing its markers and investors intrigued and wary about the trends it will follow.
