Dogecoin Whale Transactions Jump 148% After Tesla Announcement

Large transactions of the meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin jumped by 148% shortly after the CEO of electric car maker Tesla, Elon Musk, announced the firm would accept DOGE payments for merch.

As first reported by Benzinga, data from Into The Block showed Dogecoin saw a 148% increase in “large transactions,” defined as transactions on the blockchain whose value exceeds $100,000. The transactions started surging soon after the price of DOGE jumped based on Musk’s announcement.

Benzinga’s report also noted that market participants quickly shared positive sentiment on social media on the cryptocurrency, helping DOGE’s social dominance across platforms surge 54% over a 24-hour period. Dogecoin whales may also be moving funds based on a recent announcement made by a DOGE developer that revealed they managed to create the first non-fungible token (NFT) on the Dogecoin blockchain and posted the transaction in which he minted it.

The developer pointed out that on the Dogecoin blockchain, the cost to mint the NFT was only 0.01 DOGE, which roughly equals less than one cent. The developer added that he used SHA-256 hash functions to mint the NFT and store it on a Checksum.

Per earlier reports, search interest for Dogecoin exploded during the cryptocurrency’s massive 10,000% price rally earlier this year, going from an average of 135,000 monthly searches in April 2020 to 16.5 million in April 2021.

DOGE Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Dogecoin price chart, we can see that DOGE has made a marginal recovery during the ongoing session. If the current sentiment persists, we could see DOGE cross $0.18.
