A tweet by Jackson Palmer, a technologist, YouTuber, and Dogecoin co-founder, pointed out that somebody will initiate a 51% attack on Einsteinium Foundation

According to Palmer, the person has two objectives for doing the attack:

  1. To prove how easy the attacks are.
  2. To teach people the inner workings of such attacks for potential future mitigation.

Dogecoin Price Gives up Little Ground as Bitcoin Remains Bearish

In theory, this would be an excellent time for altcoins to mount a very strong comeback while Bitcoin remains bearish. However, ensuring such gains materialize is often a very different matter. The Dogecoin price puts up a valiant effort in this regard, although it too notes minor losses. For now, the $0.002 level hasn’t come under too much pressure as of yet. Dogecoin Price Momentum Offers More of the Same It is never a bad thing to see some of the top cryptocurrencies either maintain their value, or note the tiniest of losses when Bitcoin turns bearish again. Dogecoin often checks the right boxes in this regard, although it can also make for a boring market, according to some traders. Even today, the resilient altcoin notes small losses and successfully maintains its price above $0.002 without too many problems. Over the past 24 hours the net balance for DOGE is neither terrible nor promising. Following a 0.8% decrease in USD value and a 0.5% deficit in BTC value, the current Dogecoin price sits at $0.002045, or 51 Satoshi. Especially this latter value is of great interest to traders, as they mainly seek to increase their Bitcoin holdings. Although the Tor project confirmed they are now accepting cryptocurrency donations, Dogecoin is one notable exception on that particular list. On paper, it would make a lot more sense to accept Dogecoin over the likes of Augur, for example. It will be interesting to see if DOGE gets added tot he list at some point, but for now, that is not the case. You should add #dogecoin to the list ;;;) — Jordan Lyall (@CornierKhan1) March 24, 2019 Another interesting rather recent development is how Travala accepts Dogecoin payments. Consumers looking to book travel or accommodations through this platform can pay in DOGE, which can potentially introduce a lot more use cases moving forward. It is unclear how popular the supported currencies are on an individual basis, but having Dogecoin on the list is a big nod of approval in its own regard. You can use #dogecoin with @travalacom to book hotels globally. The places you will go, the things you will see, Dogecoin accepted everywhere you want to be. pic.twitter.com/SyiFoDjoQH — Dogecoin (@dogecoin) March 24, 2019 One can usually leave it up to the Dogecoin community to come up with some creative ideas and connections. Kenneth Fax is an interesting example in this regard. This user feels everyone who likes National Puppy Day should also love the passion for Dogecoin. A bit of an odd correlation, although there is some argument to be made as well. If you like #NationalPuppyday2019, then you must love the passion for #Dogecoin, right? — Kenneth Fax (@ikenfax) March 24, 2019 While the current market momentum seemingly offers nothing to be excited about, Dogecoin remains one of the more stable markets in the top 30. When the momentum turns bearish, it doesn’t budge much. The same applies to overarching bullish moment, unfortunately, but one has to take good with the bad in this industry. How this market will evolve over the coming days, remains a mystery. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice. The above article is for entertainment and education purposes only.

Dogecoin Price Maintains its Value as DOGE/BTC Notes Solid Gains

As far as the top cryptocurrency markets are concerned, it remains to be seen which one, if any, will move up later today. As of right now, everything in the top 10 looks rather bleak, primarily because Bitcoin is bleeding value all over the place. However, there is always a chance some positive momentum occurs because of this trend. When even the Dogecoin price is in the red, however, the future is not looking too great. Dogecoin Price Momentum is Worrisome In the world of cryptocurrency, there is a lot of information to keep an eye on. Not all markets will follow the world’s leading cryptocurrency’s price trend, which is always a welcome sight. When it comes to Dogecoin, however, it would appear there is always some adverse momentum. It is worth keeping an eye on Dogecoin at all times, as it is usually an indicator as to what will happen to the other markets over the next few hours. Right now, that trend is not necessarily too promising. Over the past 24 hours, Dogecoin has been unsuccessful in terms of maintaining its current value. Although a 0.12% drop isn’t too bothersome whatsoever, one has to keep in mind that in itself does not look promising whatsoever. There is a 1.12% gain in DOGE/BTC at this time, however, which could easily offset the minor USD losses over the coming hours. That is, assuming this DOGE/BTC trend will remain in place, which may prove to be rather difficult to maintain. On social media, it would appear something interesting is happening. Although the Dogecoin community still wants to get DOGE listed on Coinbase in the near future, it seems these demands are growing less common. This may be a sign of the community giving up on this project as a whole, although it is also possible Dogecoin doesn’t even need Coinbase in the first place. The recently listed coins on this exchange have not done too great in the price department, after all. Please add #dogecoin — Doge Love [Broke Philanthropist] (@DavidLoveDoge) March 21, 2019 In the world of Dogecoin, there is never a lack of memes and funny images. Dogecoin Memes has shared a nice meme this time around and one that shows how one’s Dogecoin memes folder will usually trump that of Windows or the regular memes one. Images like these will keep the community entertained for some time to come, although it is evident it will not impact the price whatsoever. A good meme a day keeps the depression away, though. #Dogecoin #memes #crypto #cryptocurrency #doge #tothemoon #wow #moonsoon #dogecoinmoon #thegoodstuff #muchfunny #suchmemes #happydoge #folder #big #windows pic.twitter.com/SsTYCv2EXG — Dogecoin Memes (@DogecoinMemes) March 21, 2019 The day can only get better when there is not just one, but two separate Dogecoin memes in one day. Siyana would like to see Dogecoin pump, rather than dump. While that is to be expected from traders and cryptocurrency enthusiasts, it seems unlikely there will be any major price increase in the near future. However, with the strong DOGE/BTC gains in place, there is a chance there won’t be much of a dump either throughout the rest of the day. All PUMP, no Dump! #Dogecoin #dogememe #dogedoge #Bitcoin #cryptocurrencies #cryptocurrencymarket pic.twitter.com/rcMCrQzjng — siyana.io (@IoSiyana) March 21, 2019 As is usually the case when it comes to Dogecoin, this market is even more predictable than most others out there. Since it doesn’t appear to rely on Bitcoin’s momentum all that much, there is a good chance things will turn out to be rather interesting moving forward. How high or low the value will go throughout the day and over the weekend, is very difficult to predict. After all, there is usually a lot of surprising price momentum during the weekend.
