Technical view of BuyUcoin cryptocurrency exchange
DOGE was up 35% on the Twitter deal. The most popular meme coin, DOGE, has witnessed a mega rally since Monday as Elon Musk’s Twitter deal neared completion. Elon Musk has been a staunch supporter of DOGE, and his tweets often move the prices of meme coins significantly.
The jump in DOGE prices is mainly related to the positive news circulation, but lacks fundamental support, so investors should buy the coin according to their risk appetite with a long-term perspective. DOGE was originally designed as a payment mechanism, and its growth will depend on real-world use cases, the experts suggested.
