Bitcoin Looses Ground While Dogecoin Metrics Soar
google news

The cryptocurrency market has been getting frequent price movements recently with meme coins like Dogecoin minting gains. Some of the significant assets made an uptrend within the past two weeks. However, most of them couldn’t sustain the bullish trend for long. Hence, they have experienced a slight drop in prices this week.

Bitcoin is among the assets that have shown high volatility in the past few days. But it seems to have flattened out at around the $24,000 region. Dogecoin, on its part, is recording a progressive increase in value. As a result, DOGE stands top among other meme coins, gaining momentum. Unfortunately, the story is not pleasant for most altcoins as most are stagnating in their prices today.

Bitcoin got quite a swing in its price over the past few days. Though it later halted during the weekend, this was after some fluctuations in its value.

The price of Bitcoin initially rose to $25,000, a new 2-month high. The rise seemed difficult for the token to ensure its sustainability and had to drop. However, it later surged upward within hours as the price rallied to about $25,200. This marked the highest point for BTC since the middle of June.

Bitcoin Falls But Dogecoin Gains Momentum

With every passing hour, the BTC price started retracting. The value finally gave up more than $1,000 to remain beneath the $24,000 mark. Since then, Bitcoin’s trading price has been hovering below the $24,000 region as the token keeps its stagnant stance. Currently, BTC boasts a market cap of about $450 billion while maintaining a 40% dominance over the altcoins.

Dogecoin has kept its lead as the first in existence and dominance when it comes to meme coins. However, DOGE is taking a different route.

The leading meme coin has gained over 8% in value in a single day. The price of DOGE has surged up to $0.08 and remains on top above several other meme coins and altcoins.

Price Performance of Altcoins

For Ethereum, the price is seeing a more positive move in an upward trend. Ether had jumped to its 74-day peak to around $2,050. The sentiment for the global second largest cryptocurrency is recently paving the way for its price performance.

This is linked to the rumor concerning its upcoming blockchain upgrade, the Merge. Despite its sudden rise within the past few days, ETH later dropped in price and is presently trading around the $1,900 region.

For other altcoins, the movement has not been so easy. Most of them have been fluctuating throughout the weekend and even on Monday. Some of them have stalled at certain marks.

There were no unusual moves for Ripple, BNB, Shiba Inu, Polkadot, Cardano, and Avalanche. From the mid-cap and lower altcoins, Monero had the best performance. Its token, XMR, made a 5% increase to hit the $170 trading.

Crypto Community Predicts Polygon (MATIC) To Rise Nearly 20% By October 31

Members of the crypto community have cast their ballots, so to speak, and now we’ll find out whether or not their forecast was accurate.

The consensus of the cryptocurrency market predicts a 20% increase in MATIC prices before the month ends, as reported by CoinMarketCap’s price prediction metrics.

This fairly optimistic forecast from the community suggests a high level of faith in both the token and the ecosystem.

Good news has recently hit the Polygon community thanks to a tweet from the official Polygon Twitter account announcing a new collaboration with the trading platform Robinhood.

Will Robinhood Team-Up Bring Good Results?

The tweet suggests that Robinhood has teamed up with Polygon to offer a bitcoin wallet service. FThe Robinhood Wallet app is built with DeFi in mind.

According to Polygon’s blog post, the Robinhood Wallet is a self-custody wallet, meaning that its owner has complete discretion over their cryptocurrency holdings.

Robinhood has made other forays into the cryptocurrency market, so this isn’t their first venture.

From its inception in 2018, it has been actively involved in the crypto industry, with Bitcoin and Ethereum being the first coins to be freely traded on the platform at no cost to traders. The change began in a select number of states.

By 2021, the trade of crypto assets has expanded across the whole United States, with the exception of Hawaii and Nevada.

The trading platform supports 11 cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Ethereum. It also facilitates the trading of alternative cryptocurrencies, similar to Polygon’s MATIC token.

With over 37,000 decentralized applications available on Polygon’s platform, it will undoubtedly aid Robinhood’s most ambitious cryptocurrency endeavor. But how did investors and traders of Polygon respond to the news?

Rally In The Offing For Crypto?

As of this writing, MATIC is trading at $$0.778741, down 0.1 percent in the last seven days, data from Coingecko show, Saturday.

Currently, the token trades between the 50 Fib level ($0.6876) and the 61.80 Fib level ($0.7761).

The present support line lies at $0.7252, which is essential because this will be the support line the bulls can rely on if things go south.

If the price reaches the 61.80 Fib level again, we can expect a slight correction if there is sufficient buy demand.

Investor confidence is high as Polygon presses forward with its Robinhood relationship, given the community projection of a near 20% price increase.
