Why Is It Moving? At press time, DOGE was the fifth highest-trending cryptocurrency on Twitter, as per Cointrendz data, seeing lower interest than  Solana SOL/USD and Cardano ADA/USD.

DOGE moved in tandem with major cryptocurrencies that traded in the red at press time with the exception of ETH as the global cryptocurrency market cap rose 0.56% to $2.24 trillion.

DOGE is no longer the seventh-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, as Solana shot past the meme coin to take the spot.

An announcement by AppSwarm Inc SWRM that it planned to deploy and host DOGE nodes at its TulsaLabs facilities caused the company’s shares to spike 77.6% in Thursday’s trading session.

Meanwhile, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin has called on Dogecoin to adopt the proof of stake consensus mechanism.
