Dogecoin: Bitfinex “starts the Gud Boi”
The move ends a strange week for Dogecoin, which has rocketed its value after a spontaneous advertising campaign involving users of the social media platform TikTok.
Perhaps directly because of the attention that the campaign generated Bitfinex entered the commercial arena. Google data suggests that many new consumers are trying to buy DOGE.
The move may have been responsible for more notable price gains. After TikTok, which pushed DOGE / USD to nearly two-year highs, a new high of $ 0.0052 was shown for the pair on Thursday.
Since then the trend has changed however, and DOGE managed to bounce off the new $ 0.004 support.
For Paolo Ardoino, CTO of Bitfinex, there was little to add. tweeted::
“Wonderful! MegaDOGE at @bitfinex! Throw the Gud Boi !!!!!!!!!!!”
