The meme-based digital currency recently encountered a sharp fall ahead of Tesla CEO’s appearance on Saturday Night Live. In the last 24 hours, the price of Dogecoin has slumped by as much as 30 per cent to about 50 US cents. The cryptocurrency declined after touching a record high level of 70 US cents early on Saturday, when it was just 30 cents away from the US 1-dollar mark. The price surged after Musk tweeted a picture of a Shiba Inu with him on the set of the iconic NBC show.

Besides Musk, American rapper Snoop Dogg and singer Gene Simmons had also expressed their support for 'Dogecoin' on social media, propelling the meme currency to new heights in 2021.

Notably, the low value and transaction fees of Dogecoin relative to Bitcoin is drawing significant investors’ interest towards this cryptocurrency. Unlike Bitcoins, whose maximum possible number is fixed at 21 million (a figure that is estimated to be reached in the next two decades), there is no upper limit on Dogecoin numbers and there are already over 100 billion coins in existence.

What do Dogecoin Enthusiasts Need to Know?

Dogecoin is a decent value opportunity; however, exit points need to be clearly defined given the lack of meaningful value in the digital token that may create a bubble-like scenario. Besides, security and scalability issues need to be clearly addressed before placing a trade on the meme-inspired cryptocurrency.

Recently, Elon Musk has also cautioned investors to not invest their life savings into cryptocurrencies, calling it unwise.
