Soft rug pull on TeddyDOGE
Developers of Dogecoin have warned investors about impersonators of the meme coin. TeddyDOGE is one of the several impersonators; RenDoge, Dogeelon, EtherDoge are the others on the Ethereum network.
Analysts reveal bearish outlook on Dogecoin
Analysts believe bears are in control of Dogecoin price, and the asset is likely to plummet. Analysts have evaluated the possibility of Dogecoin price breaking out of its multi-year trend line. Dogecoin started a declining trend in May 2021; since then, the meme coin has struggled to break out of it, despite several attempts.
$0.082 is a key resistance level for the meme coin on its path to breaking out of the downtrend. Dogecoin needs to recoup its losses from the past two weeks and cross immediate resistance at $0.079 before moving to the next at $0.082.
