Dogecoin (DOGE) Daily Transactions Spike To One-Year High

The number of daily transactions on the Dogecoin DOGE/USD blockchain surged to a one-year high of 74,986 on Sunday.

What Happened: According to blockchain data from BitInfoCharts shared by Dogecoin creator Billy Markus on Twitter, the number of DOGE transactions saw a massive spike on July 17.

Some users attributed the sudden increase in daily DOGE transactions to the integration of posting memes on the self-custodian MyDoge wallet. 

Users began sending DOGE tips to others who had posted memes using the wallet. 

The surge in DOGE transactions was not just centered around small-scale activity from retail traders. 

Data from IntoTheBlock shows that DOGE saw a 21% increase in large transactions in the last day, while other cryptocurrencies, including BitcoinBTC/USD and EthereumETH/USD recorded declines over the same period. Over the last 24 hours, the Dogecoin blockchain saw 183 “large transactions” with a minimum value of $100,000.

Price Action: According to data from Benzinga Pro, at press time, DOGE was trading at $0.066, up 1.79% over the last 24 hours.
