The crypto market seems to be astonished by yesterday’s season. Dogecoin (DOGE) threw every fundamental out of the window and smashed its way to the 5th position in the crypto top 10 by market cap. DOGE is trading at $0,27 with 20.6% losses in the daily chart.
DOGE reached an all-time high of $0,50 after a 500% pump. Chief Strategy Officer at CoinShares, Meltem Demiros, linked Dogecoin surge to the controversial subreddit r/WallStreetBets.
This group decided to lift its ban on crypto discussions. These were still limited to only Bitcoin, Ethereum, and DOGE.
However, the group decides to reinstate their ban in less than a day due to an article published by Bloomberg, as announced on their subreddit. With the title “WallStreetBets Bows to Crypto”, the article and moderator’s decision caused discomfort in that community.
As a sort of “revenge pump”, WallStreetBets might have caused DOGE’s rally. As evidence, Demiros pointed at the cryptocurrency’s traded volume. At its peaked DOGE, daily trading volume stood at $70.772.770.653, as shown by CoinGecko, with a $48B market cap.
In comparison, State Street Global Advisors’ SPY ETF, one of the “most widely held and traded”, registered around $25B in this metric during the April 17th session, according to Demiros. Also pointing at Dogecoin’s repository in GitHub, with many contributions over the past year, CoinShares CSO said:
the people have spoken, and the people want DOGE. The power of memes is moving markets. You absolutely love to see it. It’s gonna break people’s brains, and we’re just getting started. To all the @TikTokInvestors who are now $DOGE millionaires, cheers.
