Large Transactions Per IntoTheBlock Data

Cryptoanalyst Ali Martinez gives the count of these large transactions as 2,400 in number, representing a four-month high. He notes that ''Such market behavior can act as a proxy for whales' activity, suggesting how they may be positioning for a big price move.''

Large transaction spikes are frequently associated with increased activity from institutional players, or whales, who are either buying or selling. These transactions exceed $100,000 moved, according to IntoTheBlock, and were up 404% in the last 24 hours for Dogecoin.

Likewise, the profitability of the largest meme cryptocurrency has increased to 66%, up from 57% reported earlier in the month. Dogecoin was one of the biggest gainers on crypto markets on Monday, after the confirmation of Elon Musk's Twitter buyout.

Dogecoin is up 31%

Dogecoin presently trades at $0.1619 after reaching highs of $0.166 on April 25. At the time of publication, Dogecoin has demonstrated growth in the past 24 hours, up 31.25%, and its price has increased by 16.40% over the past week.
    
The rise of dog-themed coins in the last 24 hours has been potentially inspired by the recent development, with Dogecoin surging over 25% within hours of  Elon Musk's takeover confirmation. Dogecoin also returned among the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization and also the most purchased asset for Binance whales tracked by crypto data tracker WhaleStats.

On-chain analytics firm Santiment revealed that meme coins typically benefit from Elon Musk-related developments based on historical data while speaking on Dogecoin's impressive rise: "Potentially related to the news of Elon Musk's nearly formalized purchase of #Twitter today, Dogecoin has pumped +19% over the past six hours. We have historically seen that meme coins benefit from Musk developments, & we'll monitor this situation."
