Cryptocurrencies Plunge After Inflation, Celsius Shocks

Major coins declined over the weekend after inflation came in hotter than expected by analysts on Friday. DOGE has declined nearly 30% over a seven-day period. Recovery for the apex coin over the fresh trading week could be slower due to the current environment, according to Edward Moya, a senior market analyst at OANDA. 

On Sunday, cryptocurrency lending firm Celsius said it was halting withdrawals, swaps and transfers between accounts due to the “extreme market conditions.” Ethereum especially reacted negatively to the news and the overall crypto market saw further weakness.

DOGE Drops Sharper

Dogecoin’s downward moves over the weekend have been sharper than the apex coin and the coin is in a confirmed downtrend, according to Benzinga’s Melanie Schaffer. The meme coin will find resistance at $0.075 and the $0.083 mark if it bounces up. 

Doge Co-Creator’s Take On Correlation 

Doge co-creator Billy Markus said that cryptocurrency as a hedge for inflation is just “marketing bull****.”

“People are able to gamble on hyper volatile stuff when they have extra money, and don’t when they don’t have money,” said Markus.

Doge On The Web

Dogecoin developer Patrick Lodder posted an update on Reddit about the upcoming 1.14.6 release of Dogecoin core on Sunday.

Lodder said he and a fellow developer were still working to “make sense” of the network hardening he addressed in a previous post as the deadline for release looms ahead.

“By far the hardest aspect is to take the time needed to fully understand all implications of changes we’re making, and not rush out code that we may regret later,” said Lodder.  

A number of finished translations have been merged in the meantime, according to the developer. Lodder said this was “awesome” because it would make Dogecoin more accessible to 384 million Shibes who speak various languages.
