The bearish bias against the meme coin is rapidly declining based on the above metric, and DOGE is eyeing a recovery to the $0.10 level, seen most recently in April 2023. 

Top three catalysts driving DOGE price recovery

Bitcoin’s lack of directional bias, the alt season rally and Twitter’s rebrand to X are the top three catalysts likely driving DOGE price higher over the past week. BTC is range bound below the psychological barrier at $30,000, as market participants wait and watch for the impact of macro moves this week.

Based on the alt season index by Blockchaincenter.net, July is an altcoin month. Altcoins in the top 50 assets by market capitalization have consistently outperformed Bitcoin in a 30-day timeframe, driving gains in tokens like DOGE. 

Alt season is typically the capital rotation from Bitcoin to altcoins. Investors rotate profits from the largest asset by market cap to alternative cryptocurrencies for scope of higher gains in the short term.

Moreover, Dogecoin’s most influential proponent, Elon Musk, has announced a Twitter rebrand to X, which has rekindled speculation thatDOGE will be accepted as a payment method in the near future. This is one of the key catalysts driving the meme coin higher.

At the time of writing, DOGE is trading at $0.078, in its upward trend that started in June 2023.
