Dogecoin: Here is How This Address Became One of the Richest Whales

One of the world's richest Dogecoin addresses was created this week after a crypto whale acquired over $38 million worth of DOGE over three days.

The whale purchased 200 million DOGE on Tuesday and added another 250 million early Thursday, now holding a balance of more than 709.2 million DOGE worth over $60 million.

According to BitInfoCharts, this makes the whale the 20th largest DOGE wallet globally. Although the cryptocurrency is ranked 10th by market cap, it has dropped almost 5% in the last 24 hours, but it is still up over 5% in the last week and has risen by approximately 22% since the beginning of 2023.

Despite the recent price surge, the positive sentiment surrounding Dogecoin is viewed as bearish by crypto analytics firm Santiment.

It explains that euphoria generates price tops, leading to market corrections. It is worth noting that Dogecoin is still over 88% below its all-time high of $0.731578, achieved in May 2021.

At the time of writting DOGE is trading at around $0.08672 with a 24-hour trading volume of almost $715 million.
