Is DogWifHat Going to Crash? WIF Price Plummets 26% as Focus Turns to Fresh Bitcoin Alternative

DogWifHat shed 26% in 7 days.

DogWifHat (WIF) has lost 26% over the last week, making for some of the heaviest seven-day losses for a leading cryptocurrency today. It trades at $2.41 as of this writing, according to CoinGecko. 

A slight pullback today has hit meme coins the hardest. Market leaders Dogecoin (DOGE) and its stalwart rival Shiba Inu (SHIB) both posted seven-day losses 0f around 18%.

Pepe (PEPE), the only non-canine coin in this criteria, trades around 20% lower than it did this time last week.

On the other hand, meme coins are also some of the fastest-recovering projects today. WIF added 10% over the last 24 hours. DOGE and PEPE also posted 24-hour increases of 13.5% and 12% respectively.

Earlier this week, the recently approved US spot Bitcoin ETFs posted their largest three-day outflow since launch. While the news doesn’t directly affect WIF, it indicates cooling hype around the investment products, which earlier this month helped push Bitcoin’s price to a new all-time high.

Over on WIF’s trading chart, we can see that for a meme coin, WIF was fairly stable throughout February going into March’s rally. Price movements became volatile a fortnight into March, as evidenced by the sharp dips, but the token has found strong recent support at $2.

Given the recent performance, a crash to below $2 is unlikely in the near term. WIF’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) sits at around 47, which is a Goldilocks zone indicating neither buying nor selling pressure.

As DogWifHat (WIF) Swings, GBTC Prepares For Liftoff

Holding meme coins is a nerve-wracking affair. Due to the rapid nature of their price movements, which tend to reflect exaggerated price movements in the broader market, meme coin HODLers often find themselves eyeing prices more than most.

That’s why small-cap coin investors have to diversify their portfolios by considering two other criteria for any cryptocurrency: utility and upside potential.

Green Bitcoin (GBTC) has plenty of both. It has just raised $7.2 million over a two-week-long presale.

Issued on Ethereum, Green Bitcoin is an ERC-20 token that comes with an innovative predict-to-earn staking model that rewards participants for correctly predicting Bitcoin’s price.

GBTC has a hardcap of 21 million, making it every bit as scarce as its inspiration, BTC.

However, GBTC’s use of Ethereum’s proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain over Bitcoin’s less energy-efficient proof-of-work mechanism makes it cleaner and greener than its namesake.

In addition to casting daily predictions to earn rewards, holders can stake their tokens for up to six months to earn even bigger rewards.

Staking is a fundamental part of Green Bitcoin’s tokenomics. By reducing GBTC’s circulating supply, staking helps drive the price over the long-term.

Anyone can get involved by simply visiting the official Green Bitcoin website and connecting a crypto wallet.

1 GBTC presently costs $1.1062, with the price due to rise in three days.

There are still a few weeks left of the presale, and the token could rally sharply by the time it’s listed on major exchanges.
