Over the last few hours, Musk has been continuously about DOGE with one of his recent tweets stating “Who let the Doge out”. Commenting on the latest Dogecoin price surge, popular crypto trader DonAlt states that the “normie shilling” around Dogecoin is just unprecedented. However, he warns new investors who are entering with a perspective of long-term gains. The crypto trader warns:
“If you’re trying to get into DOGE for the long term – You’ll give back everything you’ve made. So, sell partials on the way up or try to time the top by analyzing how much steam is left in the normie shill tank. Buying DOGE should only be done with selling in mind.”
With the recent rally, Dogecoin is now among the list of top-ten cryptocurrencies with a market cap of $9.1 billion.
