@Mangyek0, leading cryptocurrency analyst at FXStreet, argues that capital rotation is ongoing in the crypto ecosystem. The analyst argues that investors’ mindset towards Dogecoin has changed.
the fact that $DOGE did not pump despite this clear mention from Musk is a testament to the capital rotation that's happening and the investors' mindset.https://t.co/7V9dZ7MKbU https://t.co/axzQyDGbFk— Akash (@Mangyek0) May 27, 2022
Poor adoption of Dogecoin across global businesses
Analysts argued that new announcements and a boost in utility of Dogecoin could push the meme coin’s price higher. However, bullish drivers have failed to trigger a rally in the meme coin’s price.
A key factor in bearish sentiment on the meme coin is poor adoption by businesses. Motley Fool, a financial advice firm, recently revealed that 1300 business across the globe accept DOGE.
While 36% of the United States’ small businesses accept Bitcoin, Dogecoin is struggling with a boost in its adoption. The hype built around Dogecoin adoption has sustained to drive a price rally in DOGE.
Michelle Jongbloets, a crypto YouTuber and analyst, evaluated the Dogecoin price chart and noted that the DOGE price is retracing. The analyst argues that it is alarming to see a 20-day moving average and 50 day moving average closing in. Dogecoin price is currently well above the two moving averages, however, a crossover could confirm a bearish phase in DOGE.
