Elon Musk Reveals Reason Behind Dogecoin Investment, But Why Is DOGE Down?

Billionaire Elon Musk has been a long-time supporter of Dogecoin and he has not been shy when it comes to talking about his love for the meme coin. Usually, when Musk talks about DOGE, the price tends to go up as investors rush to capitalize on the publicity. However, it is not the case this time around because despite Musk mentioning the meme coin, its price has gone in the opposite direction. Elon Musk Says Don’t Bet On Crypto Or Dogecoin Tesla CEO Elon Musk spoke at the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council Summit held in London and among other topics, he touched on the crypto industry and Dogecoin in particular. Musk once again professed his support for Dogecoin, saying he likes the meme coin because of its humor and the fact that it incorporated dogs.

Musk has a long history of supporting the meme coin and it was this support that sent the cryptocurrency rallying to new all-time highs back in 2021. At different points since then, Musk’s posts have also moved the price positively. But his stance this time around has deviated from what is normally expected and the price of DOGE has suffered for it. DOGE Price Retraces Despite Musk Mention In one of the rare cases, the price of Dogecoin has actually retraced after Musk mentioned the meme coin during his interview. The price is down over 3% in the last 24 hours alone and is now trading dangerously close to the $0.07 support level.

Also, with Bitcoin seeing losses, it has taken the market down with it, so there is not much room for recovery for DOGE at this time.

Such a move would no doubt lead to an at least 50% upside for the meme coin, and it could be a catalyst for its next rally. At the time of writing, DOGE is changing hands at a price of $0.07113.

Meme Coin Season May Be Over As PEPE, SHIB, DOGE, Continue Decline

Momentum in the crypto market has ground to a near-halt over the last couple of days and meme coins are suffering the most for it. As market participants remain wary of their investment options, the likes of PEPE, SHIB, and DOGE have continued to decline, signaling an end to the short meme coin bull run experienced in April. Meme Coin Momentum Slows Significantly Meme coins have been one of the hardest hit presently as both large and small meme coins have been on a decline. For example, PEPE, a meme coin that rose into prominence in April, has lost over 60% of its early May all-time high value and is still recording losses of 7.5% in the last 24 hours.

The digital asset is still holding on to its support above the $0.07 but bears continue to threaten its ability to recover. Just like PEPE, DOGE is seeing a decline in the last day, albeit to a lesser degree, with 1.8% losses during this time period. Next on this list is SHIB which is currently the only one of the top meme coins that are recording some semblance of gains. But even its gains so far have been meager and losses are the order of the day on the larger 7-day scale. SHIB is still below its critical $0.000009 resistance but has risen 1.7% in the last day. Others such as Baby Doge Coin and Floki are seeing losses in the 24-hour and 7-day charts as well. As a result, the total meme coin market cap is down 2.6% in the last day and is now sitting at a $17.13 billion capitalization, data from Coingecko shows.

The current market climate makes it so that cryptocurrencies are presenting what some would call a great buying opportunity. This is because for a lot of these assets to return to their previous highs, it would mean an at least 100% increase from their current market price.

Since cryptocurrencies have been consolidating for a while, a breakout could be imminent and this would mean buying assets such as PEPE, DOGE, and SHIB at current prices could present as a good entry point for good profits. However, this only works if the market bottom is truly in. With cryptocurrencies being very volatile, they could just as well swing downward from this point, leading to more losses for investors.
