Zinger Key Points
  • A mysterious transfer of 120 million Dogecoin to Robinhood coincides with a notable price leap for the meme cryptocurrency.
  • An unidentified crypto whale stirs the market, moving over half a billion Dogecoin in a day, with a hefty chunk landing in Robinhood.

A transfer of 120 million Dogecoin DOGE/USD to the trading platform Robinhood has coincided with a 4.45% surge in the price of the meme cryptocurrency.

What Happened: Whale Alert's blockchain data shows a significant amount of Dogecoin was moved to Robinhood, triggering a near 5% price increase for DOGE.

The transfer, which occurred over 10 hours ago, involved 120 million DOGE, worth roughly $18.5 million at the time.

The wallet involved in the transfer has been active, with outflows of 48.3 million, 150 million, 118.3 million, and 190 million DOGE in the past day, including the 120 million transfer.

This amounts to a total of 506.4 million Dogecoin, valued at about $71.1 million.

Interestingly, this wallet also received two large DOGE transfers on May 16 and 17, totaling 306.4 million coins valued at $47.5 million. Following a week-long pause, the last transaction was on May 9.

The unidentified cryptocurrency whale currently holds 1.6 billion DOGE, equivalent to $248.6 million.

Following the mysterious transfer, Dogecoin's price saw a significant increase, rising by 4.45% to $0.15676. A slight rebound followed, with DOGE now trading at approximately $0.1525.

Why It Matters: This isn't the first time large DOGE transfers have impacted the coin's price.

In March, a massive influx of 118.4 million DOGE to Robinhood sparked speculation and a price increase.

Similarly, in April, a transfer of 200 million DOGE from Robinhood to an unknown wallet fueled a surge in Dogecoin's value.

These events highlight the influence of large transfers on the meme coin's market dynamics.
