The top dog memecoin, Dogecoin (DOGE), went out for a sprint this weekend, only to come back with double-digit gains. Firstly, the hype built around Ethereum’s (ETH) “The Merge” update led to a bullish outlook for DOGE. Secondly, the core update reduced fees on Dogecoin’s network. Lastly, the brand new Dogechain platform finally went live and has already seen over 58,000 Dogecoin (DOGE) wallet owners bridging to the new chain.
Dogechain Brings More Utility for Dogecoin (DOGE)
Despite being the unofficial blockchain platform for Dogecoin (DOGE), it’s built “for holders, by holders.” Hence, after the bridging is done, a user receives Wrapped Dogecoin ($WDoge), which can be used in various DeFi apps, NFT platforms, and blockchain games. Moreover, Dogechain’s developers promised an airdrop to every user that decides to bridge to the new chain. In addition, Dogecoin (DOGE) is not the only memecoin with a brand new layer-2 solution. Rival canine coin Shiba Inu (SHIB) is also preparing to drop Shibarium, a layer-2 solution for the prospering dog-themed token, originally known as “DogeCoin Killer.”
Does Dogecoin (DOGE) Resemble Bitcoin’s (BTC) 2019 Rally?
According to a crypto analyst going by the name of “Smart Contractor,” there are a lot of similarities between Dogecoin’s (DOGE) recent price movement and the big breakout of 2019. During the time, the flagship crypto asset went to around $50,000. As for Dogecoin (DOGE), the crypto analyst sees a potential run to the zone of $0.50. As indicated by the Fibonacci retracement tool, the support and resistance levels could ignite a ~500% run for the dog-themed token.
Rival Shiba Inu (SHIB) Is Once Again on Fire
In other related news, the SHIB Army went on to burn massive amounts of their beloved token, according to Shibburn, the official virtual bonfire of the Shiba Inu (SHIB) ecosystem. According to the site, the burn rate skyrocketed by a whopping 385.95% during the last 24 hours, with over 73M of SHIB tokens up in smoke already.
Moreover, the SHIB Army surpassed the DOGE Army by followers on Twitter. The intense competition by the two crypto communities might lead to another bull run for the two canine memecoins, as both recorded high weekly gains with 22.2% for Dogecoin (DOGE) and 25.5% for Shiba Inu (SHIB).
