Notably, the overall global trading volumes of DOGE rose up-to $18.82 billion per day amid volatile markets. But at the same time high volatility is always risky for crypto crashes due to huge trading volumes.

Dogecoin Remains competitive

It is competing with the top and famous digital currencies Bitcoin and Ether. Moreover, Ethereum is moving forward on an average volume of 53% per day on global exchanges. Whereas, bitcoin is dipping down 14% from its price value in the crypto market. Thus, Ethereum is surpassing Bitcoin in the crypto market. Importantly, the main reasons for bitcoin’s fall is China’s crackdown on bitcoin mining and Musk removing the bitcoin payments for Tesla products.

Additionally, world’s top crypto exchanges listed Dogecoin on their platforms during this second quarter of the year. Doge is now available in Gemini and eToro from May, and Coinbase in June. More so, Coinbase reveals the overall cryptocurrency trading volumes which shows 32% increase worth $19 billion on daily crypto transactions. Thus, this data covers more than 5% of transactions with a combination of DOGE during the Q2.

According to CoinMarketCap, Dogecoin price is $0.176853 USD at the time of writing. More so, these digital currencies play a vital role in all industries and businesses at present. Therefore its prices hit record highs before the year end.
