Dogecoin (DOGE), the altcoin based on the popular doge meme, has long-served as an early indicator of an altseason, a time in the crypto market cycle where investors have an increased risk-appetite for altcoins.
The DOGE/BTC trading pair has shown significant seasonality, where massive gains (sometimes as much as 700-800%) come in a matter of a few weeks. These surges often bring DOGE from around 10-30 sats to 100-180 sats.
A quick look at the DOGE/BTC chart shows that we are currently sitting at the low-end of this range, around 30 sats. Notably, DOGE is now up around 7.4% on the day and is showing signs of a breakout following a year-long downtrend.
Altcoins have been showing major signs of life over the last few weeks, with many appearing ready to break out after a rough summer. Notably, most major altcoins (and Bitcoin) are trading higher than a week ago against the dollar.
