Pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst @AltcoinSherpa attributes the recent bullish trend reversal to the Coinbase announcement. The analyst expects a correction to follow closely.
Shiba-Inu coin’s competitor Dogecoin rallied alongside SHIB, posting nearly 4% gains in the past 24 hours.
Dogecoin rallies in response to bullish development upgrades
Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum, joined Dogecoin Foundation’s new advisory board earlier in August 2021. Buterin recently proposed that the meme coin should adopt proof-of-stake as a consensus mechanism.
The Shiba-Inu-themed crypto currently relies on energy-intensive mining, and its current consensus mechanism is proof-of-work.
Personally, I hope that doge can switch to PoS soon, perhaps using ethereum code. I also hope they don't cancel the 5b/year annual PoW issuance, instead they put it in some kind of DAO that funds global public goods. Would fit well with dogecoin's non-greedy wholesome ethos.— vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) September 2, 2021
When asked about the most promising ideas for Ethereum/ Dogecoin cooperation, the founder of Ethereum stated:
If we can have a secure Doge-to-Ethereum bridge. That would be amazing.
Buterin’s statement was well-received by the community and considered a bullish development that prepares Dogecoin for the future of crypto. Following the Ethereum founder’s comments, Dogecoin unveiled an upgrade that reduced the transaction fees on the DOGE network.
DOGE currently runs on the Dogecoin blockchain, derived from Litecoin’s scrypt technology. The development team is currently testing two minor nodes before the final upgrade release.
In a recent report, Robinhood, the commission-free exchange, stated that 62% of the exchange’s revenue comes from DOGE trading. The exchange has recently introduced a fee-free recurring buying feature for traders keen on Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA) and buying their favorite cryptocurrencies.
Considering DOGE’s popularity on Robinhood, the addition of this feature is likely to increase the number of Dogecoin buyers and holders.
FXStreet analysts expect Dogecoin to continue its uptrend in light of bullish developments.
