On the night of February 8, the price of Dogecoin cryptocurrency soared 41% from $ 0.058 to $ 0.082 and set a new high. At the time of writing, the coin is trading at $ 0.071, according to CoinGecko.
One of the possible reasons for the rise in the price of Dogecoin was the support of the American rapper Snoop Dogg. On February 6, he published a meme with a cryptocurrency symbol, a Shiba Inu dog, in the image of himself and noted Elon Musk.

The founder of the cryptocurrency bank Galaxy Digital Mike Novogratz expressed concern about the future of the asset.
I actually think the $ DOGE frenzy is gonna end poorly. Same reason $ GME did. Greed and Gravity. $ DOGE doesn’t have a purpose. Stay with $ BTC, $ ETH, defi coins. Plenty of smarter ways to play this crypto rally.

“The DOGE madness will end badly. For the same reason as GME. Greed and attraction. DOGE has no purpose, ”wrote Novogratz.
Earlier, Dogecoin surged nearly 50% in less than an hour after Musk’s series of tweets were posted.
Recall that an unknown cryptocurrency whale has concentrated more than 28% of Dogecoin coins on its address.
