Traders Not Showing Dogecoin FOMO, Good Sign For Rally?

Must read

On-chain data suggests traders haven’t been showing FOMO towards Dogecoin despite the latest rally, a sign that could be positive for its continuation.

Dogecoin Total Amount Of Holders Has Remained Flat Recently

According to data from the on-chain analytics firm Santiment, FOMO, which would normally be associated with tops, has been absent from the Dogecoin market recently.

The indicator of relevance here is the “Total Amount of Holders,” which, as its name suggests, keeps track of the total number of DOGE addresses that are carrying a non-zero balance right now.

When the value of this metric goes up, it can be because of a number of reasons. A major one would naturally be fresh adoption, as new investors coming into the sector would open up new addresses and add balance to them, thus raising the indicator’s value.

Other reasons can include existing users reconsolidating their holdings among multiple addresses (usually for a purpose like privacy) or old investors coming back to reinvest in the meme coin.

In general, whenever the metric shows this kind of trend, it means that some net adoption of the asset is taking place, which can be a positive sign in the long term.

On the other hand, a decline in the indicator implies some holders may have decided to exit from the cryptocurrency as they have completely cleared out their addresses.

Now, here is a chart that shows the trend in the Dogecoin Total Amount of Holders over the last few months:

As displayed in the above graph, the ‘Total Amount of Holders’ for Dogecoin has been flat for many weeks now, implying that the adoption of the meme coin has hit the brakes.

Interestingly, this sideways trajectory has come despite the fact that DOGE’s price has gone through some volatile price action during this period. Generally, events like rallies are attractive to traders, so a notable amount of them tend to jump into the asset during them.

It would appear that the traders have either not been paying attention to the recent DOGE rally or just not taking it seriously. In the past couple of weeks, the ‘Total Amount of Holders’ for the meme coin has gone up by only 0.21%, despite the fact that the price has rallied more than 40% in the same window.

Historically, when a large number of traders join the blockchain at once during price surges, it’s a sign that FOMO around the asset is spreading. Usually, the meme coin’s price tends to go against the expectations of the majority, so when there is widespread FOMO, a top can become likely to take place.

As there hasn’t been any such FOMO for Dogecoin recently, it’s possible that it could be a positive sign for the rally’s continuation. There is also another signal brewing, however, that may not be so constructive.

From the chart, it’s visible that the Mean Dollar Invested Age, a metric that keeps track of the average age of DOGE investments, has plunged recently, implying that the experienced hands have been on the move. When this signal formed earlier in the year, the coin’s price approached the top not too long after.

Dogecoin had surpassed the $0.22 level earlier, but it seems the asset has gone through some drawdown as it’s now back under $0.21.
