Dogecoin is experiencing a sudden surge in whale activity. The meme-coin saw 523 whales taking an entry position during the last week of January with an investment of more than $100,000. The whale transactions reached the highest level since Nov. 27, 2022.

DOGE had a phenomenal start in 2023 as it jumped nearly 35% from $0.07 to $0.09 in 30 trading days. The cryptocurrency is attracting bullish sentiments as both retail and whale purchases have seen a significant increase.

The whale purchases come at a time when the Dogecoin community is expecting a price pump this month. The Dogecoin developers teased a new announcement as the meme-coin’s price nears the $0.1 mark.

The team is currently working towards the launch of ‘libdogecoin 0.1.2’. The new launch will focus on making integrations rapid for DOGE developers. However, whether DOGE will spike in price after the launch is a game we will have to wait and watch.

Nonetheless, the markets remain on the greener side of the spectrum and could give a boost to Dogecoin to go above $0.1 when the update is released. DOGE is being repeatedly rejected around $0.1 levels and is falling to climb above the mark since the start of January. The leading meme-coin needs to break through these levels to reach new monthly highs.
