Data from CoinMarketCap has disclosed that DOGE rose by 8.7% in the past 24 hours. The rise in the price of Dogecoin was followed by that of Shiba Inu, leaving SHIB traders to enter a riskier trading pattern.

Analysis by Alex Dovbnya, a cryptocurrency journalist and market watcher, says that the recent increase was made possible because of the news of a proposed integration of Dogecoin as one of X’s payment systems – which he once hinted. Elon Musk, the X CEO, has long expressed his fondness for Dodge cryptocurrency hence, has continued to fuel Dogecoin dominance in the cryptocurrency market.

Doubts, Confusion Thrills The Motive Behind The Huge Transfer

There have also been several speculations from the Dogecoin community that it will likely hit $1.00 anything soon. This is seen as a repeat of the August incident where the price of Dogecoin rose by up to 300%, raising high hopes of a potential $1.00 price target.

Analysis on CoinGape  today says that a strategic reason could be one for this transfer. It explained that traders and investors in cryptocurrencies frequently base their decisions on market patterns, possible trading opportunities, or particular trading tactics.

Dovbnya had suggested that there could be a number of effects from adding so many DOGE coins to the platform, such as an increase in trading activity and liquidity.
