Dogecoin (DOGE) Price Drops After Weekend Surge

Dogecoin (DOGE) has had an exciting price surge in the previous several days, especially after news of Dogethereum, or DOGE’s plans to become compatible with the ETH network. However, it would seem that the excitement has passed, and DOGE’s price is dropping once more.

Dogecoin price surge surprises the crypto world

Dogecoin has started off years ago as a meme, and a lot of people do not see anything more than that when they look upon it. However, even though the coin may have started out as a joke, it has managed to surprise quite a few investors when its price surged a few days ago.

Dogecoin is often underestimated, but it remains one of the most mineable coins on the market. Additionally, it is often used in transactions, which increases its activity, and the coin is already more active than Litecoin or Bitcoin Cash. Despite this, however, the coin will likely not go anywhere due to the fact that it has an unlimited supply, which means that the mining will never stop. That way, its price can only get lower and lower, as there are more coins in circulation.

A couple of days ago, DOGE’s price suddenly jumped, possibly led by Gate.IO, where an entire third of its volumes are concentrated. The spike has reminded people about DOGE, and many even started talking about the coin getting on Binance.

In the meanwhile, there was also news of Dogethereum, a new DOGE project that will allow the coin to become compatible with ETH’s own network. Dogethereum will basically be a smart contract that allows direct swaps, which is how DOGE might be able to exist on ETH network. As usual, there are skeptics who believe that the project has no future. However, Dogethereum is still expected to launch soon, likely within days.

If it does happen, and DOGE gets to ETH network, it will be a perfect coin for micropayments, rewards, and alike. Currently, DOGE lacks a proprietary wallet, since its own has had a lot of issues lately. The flaw of the project is that there is likely going to be a need for a centralized party that would have to approve the asset switch, new Dogethereum’s issuing, as well as the release of Dogecoins that will be locked.

The excitement is over, as so is Dogecoin price surge

After an entire weekend of going up, DOGE price dropped by an entire 35% yesterday. The coin’s current price is $0.005199, and it still continues to drop at the time of writing. The drop came after the price surged by 70%. Luckily, the drop did not really have much of an effect on the rest of the market. Most of it is currently in the red, but the analysts claim that DOGE is not responsible for this change.

So, what happened to DOGE? Well, it might seem that the initial excitement regarding the Dogethereum simply blew over and that DOGE’s price is simply correcting itself. Many also claim that this is not the last we will hear of this coin and that it might go up once again as soon as Bitcoin makes a significant move. Another possibility is that Dogethereum coming to life will also spark a new wave of interest in the coin. It remains to be seen, and the next few days may be quite interesting for DOGE.

DGB price prediction

With the crypto market being constantly bearish throughout this year, a lot of investors are having second thoughts about buying additional coins. While some large cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum can be considered safe investments, smaller coins like Digibyte (DGB) often receive a lot of doubt. This is why the DGB price prediction is necessary so that the investors can know what to expect.

DGB Price Prediction

DGB has had its ups and downs throughout this year, and at some point, it even went up by 70%. However, the constant bear market affected it just as much as numerous other cryptos. This has brought its value down to its current $0.025378 per coin. Some optimistic predictions from earlier dates saw the coin reaching as high a price as $9.20 by the year’s end. However, as we approach the date, it seems less and less likely that this DGB price prediction will come true.

The coin is generally seen as a profitable investment. As it is always the case with cryptocurrencies, they should be bought when their prices are down, so that a profit could be made when they spike up once more. Digibyte is no different, but it should be noted that investing in this coin means having patience. DGB is not among the coins that will make you rich overnight, and instead, it should be seen as a long-term investment.

Even though 2018 has been as…

Can Tron (TRX) follow in the Ripple (XRP) footsteps?

Tron Ripple

It’s no secret that the cryptocurrency markets have been in an overall slump, especially when you consider all of the bearish action for bitcoin, ethereum, and altcoins, in 2018, compared to the incredible bull run of 2017.

While many people believe that this is simple consolidation, others paint the narrative that many are unsure about real-world applications for blockchain technology and whether institutional money will flow into cryptocurrencies at all.

Ripple is undoubtedly changing that narrative, recently surging over 80% thanks to its developments and partnerships with financial institutions.

It even briefly took Ethereum’s spot as the number two coin by market capitalization, in a price rally that confirmed a trend reversal and stunned many investors and traders in the cryptocurrency community. The price eventually decreased as Ripple returned to the number 3 spot concerning market cap, but the price movement certainly made a statement.

There are those who have been wondering whether Tron could make a similar move eventually, considering it is a project that has decreased dramatically in market cap, and many consider the coin oversold.

The fact that Ripple made an 80% move that quickly gave hope to other altcoins, and comfort to the cryptocurrency community that may be in the red that not only was it possible to break even again, but all was not lost in the markets, and that they can begin hoping to profit, in the long term.

Back in mid-May, the Winklevoss Twins made the headlines for embracing ZCash (ZEC) as one of its major digital assets on their groundbreaking Gemini exchange. When the announcement was made, ZEC rallied in the market by showing a 45% increment in value. The coin made it to $357 in a matter of hours.

Further assessing the currently available digital assets on the Gemini platform, we find that the exchange currently has USD pairings for only Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum and ZEC. There is also additional pairings of ETH/BTC, ZEC/BTC and ZEC/ETH with plans to onboard Litecoin in the coming days.

Another thing to note is that the exchange also provides custodial services for institutional investors thus giving ZEC the much-needed exposure to the firms on Wall Street. Custodial services provide a guarantee that all digital assets on the platform are stored by a licensed entity thus extinguishing any cybersecurity concerns. For an entity to be licensed in New York for custodial services, the proper due diligence and research have been done.

Another thing that makes the Gemini exchange attractive and appealing to institutional investors, is that all USD deposits are insured by the FDIC. The latter entity is the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation that provides insurance for USD deposits in American banks. This means that once again, the funds of individual and institutional investors are safe and insured, further making…
