DOGE price in decline
Over the past few days, the price of the largest meme token on the market has been in decline. Since Thursday, DOGE has lost slightly over 8% as it dropped from $0.0877 to the $0.0807 level, where it is trading at the time of this writing.
The drop began after a sudden 5.45% surge in a single green hourly candle, which occurred after the biggest public DOGE fan Elon Musk tweeted a meme about Dogecoin.
In the past, such moves of Musk were able to provide more or less sustainable long-term growth of DOGE. These days, however, his tweets are provoking brief rises, which end in hard price drops of Dogecoin.
