Dogecoin Whale Dumps Substantial Holdings On The Market, Here’s How Much

A Dogecoin (DOGE) whale recently offloaded significant portions of their DOGE holdings in an act of profit-taking. This action has negatively affected the meme coin’s price, which has been on a downward trend since then. 

Dogecoin Whale Offloads 86 Million DOGE

On-chain data shows that the crypto trader deposited 86 million DOGE into the crypto exchange Robinhood in an effort to profit from the meme coin’s recent price surge. The whale, however, looks to be bullish on the meme coin in the long term, as they have since repurchased a significant amount of DOGE and still hold a substantial amount of it. 

Meanwhile, due to the size of such a sale, the price of Dogecoin has since dipped and is currently on a downward trend. Before now, Dogecoin and other meme coins had led other altcoins, making significant gains in these past few weeks. As such, it is understandable that the Dogecoin whale in question seized the opportunity to take some profits.

This week has been one of profit-taking from the meme coin ecosystem. Bitcoinist reported on Shiba Inu (SHIB) and PEPE whales that earned a realized gain of $48.105 million and $3.364 million from offloading their meme coin holdings.

This wave of profit-taking has partly contributed to the significant drop in the prices of the foremost meme coins, DOGE and SHIB, with both crypto tokens down over 6% and 18% in the last seven days. 

However, Solana-based meme coins have upheld the broader meme coin ecosystem, with these crypto tokens pulling astonishing numbers for crypto investors. Book of Meme (BOME) stands out, seeing the growth that it has recorded since launching just this week. It rose to a $1 billion market cap and has been listed on major crypto exchanges.
