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.

With the crypto markets in turmoil, especially after news about a potential hack at Cryptopia, traders and investors need to turn their attention away from day trading.  Instead, crypto traders really need to think long-term and identify projects that are sure to win in the long-term.  In particular, one crypto company is making major headlines after winning an all-important technology battle against the mighty Facebook.  That company is Zulu Republic (ZTX).

Zulu Republic Develops Lite.IM

Zulu Republic is an ecosystem of blockchain tools and platforms, designed as a place where people, businesses, and organizations can thrive on their own terms.  And indeed, Zulu Republic has hit a grand slam with their development of Lite.IM.

Telegram and Facebook Messenger are extremely popular platforms.  But, potentially even more exciting news, is that the Lite.IM team plan to announce WhatsApp integration in the next 1-2 weeks.  There is a reason why Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014, for…

While even the best years cannot help sustain bad cryptocurrency projects, the good and strong ones can do much even when years are extremely bad for crypto. TRON (TRX) has proven this in 2018 by being one of the most active and most popular projects around.

Throughout the previous year, TRON has been making great progress, setting foundations for growth and expansion, which may eventually lead to its dominance over the crypto market. Now, 2019 has barely even started, and it already promises to be a year filled with potential and all kinds of different possibilities for this coin.

TRON in 2018

2018 has started with a market crash that has brought a lot of coins down from their all-time highs. This is true for TRON as well, and it did not manage to avoid being affected by bear market, no matter what its developers did. However, instead of trying to fight the market and its trends, they focused on expansion, development, partnerships, and future projects.

The first big step for TRON was the launch of its MainNet, with dozens of listings and partnerships being announced right before the final launch. After that, the coin transferred its tokens from Ethereum’s network, it had a Super Representative election, and it even managed to purchase BitTorrent, which was a part of a secret project back then.

The project was quickly…
