Will dogecoin continue to rise?

Jesse Acosta, founder of TheDayTraderChatroom.com told Express.co.uk: “I think Dogecoin could push towards the £0.54 ($0.75) area in the best case scenario this year if the buying volume stays strong.

“By buying volume, I mean a lot more investors buying into it.

“As it climbs, people will take profits, but as long as there are more buyers than there are sellers the price will continue to push on up.”

He believes the future trends of dogecoin are mainly dependent on the “hype of social media”.

The cryptocurrency expert added: “As long as this hype stays strong and buying volume is big on the way up.

“It could continue its upward trend, but I do expect a significant pullback before it makes that attempt.

“I do think the upward trend will continue as long as the social media hype stays strong.

“Remember this is a meme coin. As long as people keep hyping it on social media, more new buyers will come in.”

Mohit Tater, CEO of Black Book Investments, and Bitcoin, and NFT expert, believes it is difficult to predict dogecoin enthusiasts will see the currency reach the £7.14 ($10) mark.

He told Express.co.uk: “Dogecoin’s price spike is staggering: especially considering that this cryptocurrency was initially created as an internet joke.

“It hasn’t reached £0.71 ($1) yet, but it has still grown over 300 percent recently (it started out at $0.0015).

“The $1 mark is currently being set as a sort of ‘goal’ as fans and holders of the cryptocurrency hope to reach it before the end of 2021.

“It’s likely that this goal will be met, considering the upward trend, but difficult to predict if it can be sustained post that event

“For dogecoin enthusiasts who have set their hearts upon the £7.14 ($10) mark: it’s difficult to say they won’t be disappointed.”

Mr Tater added the trends of Bitcoin and those disgruntled about not investing in the digital coin years ago are jumping on the dogecoin bandwagon now.

He said: “Dogecoin’s reputation precedes itself: as the latest get-rich-quick opportunity, it rises because of the masses of people clamouring to have a piece of the cake.

“As the popularity of Dogecoin only increases, so will the investments: particularly from scores of people who regret not investing in Bitcoin years ago.

“However, for Dogecoin to continue rising in the way other cryptocurrencies have, it will need its investors to have faith and sit tight for a couple of years.”

He added today (DogeDay) could mark a change in the pattern of the cryptocurrency.

Mr Tater said: “It’s likely that upon hitting the $1 mark, a large portion of holders will cash in, causing a subsequent plummet.

“Market research has consistently shown that the rises and falls are inevitable as the price of cryptocurrencies becomes cyclical.

“Dogecoin will need to suffer a few falls before it can reach a significant price (such as the $10 mark), which will plausibly take a few years.”

Crypto investor and CPA Exam Guy owner Bryce Welker does not believe the coin will reach its DogeDay target.

He told Express.co.uk: “The long-term forecast of Dogecoin indicates that the price could go as high as £0.03 ($0.0417) by the end of 2022, £0.032)($0.0441) by the end of 2023 and £0.036 ($0.05096) by the beginning of 2026.”

Mr Welker added the cryptocurrency is currently dependent on endorsement from important figures such as Elon Musk.

He said: “Dogecoin is what people typically refer to as a ‘meme’ coin (i.e. an ‘unserious coin’) since there is a technically infinite supply of them.

“What will continue to impact the price of Dogecoin, first and foremost, will be the continued support from people like Elon Musk and its pop-cultural value thanks to places like Reddit.

“The continued upward trajectory of cryptocurrencies in general and sustained retail investor interest in alternative coins, thanks to the now prohibitively expensive price of Bitcoin, will also impact Doge.

“I think the price of Dogecoin will continue to increase in tandem with the rest of the cryptocurrency market, but not because of any solid fundamentals, but simply because it will continue to enjoy the self-perpetuating fame of already being famous.

“I think Doge ultimately exists to be pumped and dumped by insiders and market makers and it will eventually peter out as the more substantive coins continue to receive legitimate institutional interest and mainstream media coverage.”

Ethan Taub, CEO of Loanry, said he does not believe dogecoin will have the continued stratospheric rise some cryptocurrency experts predict.

Mr Taub said: “Although the evidence seems to indicate otherwise, I don’t think that dogecoin will take off as much as people think.

“It crept to the top because it wasn’t taken seriously and considered “meme currency”, but now that people see it as legitimate, more people will be mining for it which would drive the market down significantly.

“This is likely to impact its potential heights.

“I think that the price could almost double in the coming weeks but then we will see it fall massively very shortly after.

“If everyone is mining for it, no one will be looking to buy, only sell.”

Crypto Head spokesman James Page said the digital coin could surge and even triple its current price depending on ongoing trends.

Mr Page told Express.co.uk: “If dogecoin can become the people’s currency, everything is a possibility in the Crypto Market.

“Thus the only thing sure is that dogecoin will rise should traders continue to patronise and buy it.

“Given how long term investment dogecoin is, this is not difficult to follow.

“What’s harder to predict here, is how much it will surge up to the market once more people start to pay attention to it.

“But presumingly, it can double or triple in value, or may go higher depending on the trend and financial market.”
