Dogecoin (DOGE) price hit $0.082 on Thursday, November 30, growing 9% in the last 7 days, despite the downturn in the broader memecoin markets. On-chain analysis explores the major catalysts behind Dogecoin’s recent growth performance.
Dogecoin is in High Demand Among Corporate Investors
The memecoin markets shrank over the past week. But while Shiba Inu (SHIB) and, PEPE flipped negative, Dogecoin price has stopped just short of a double-digit gains, increasing from $0.075 to $0.083 over the last seven trading days.
However, a closer inquest into the underlying on-chain data trends shows that corporate entities and high net-worh investors have increased their demand for Dogecoin.
The Dogecoin network recorded a total of 1,450 Large Transactions on November 29, according to the latest reading from on-chain data tracker, IntoTheBlock. This is a 55% increase from the 937 Large Transactions recorded on November 25.
This increase in whale demand appears to have triggered the 9% DOGE price rally in the past week, even while other mega-cap meme tokens trended negative.

In crypto terms, Large Transactions, alternatively called Whale Transactions, is an on-chain metric that tracks the trading activity of corporate entities and high net-worth investors on a blockchain network. Essentially, it tracks the number of confirmed Dogecoin transactions that exceed $100,000 in value within a trading day.
The 54% increase in Large transactions over the past week, could be a significant bullish catalyst for DOGE price.
Firstly, when whale investors increase their demand, it encourages strategic retail traders into to mirror their trades.
More importantly, the Large Transaction provides much-needed market liquidity. This ongoing increase in corporate demand, could tilt he momentum in favor of bullish swing day traders looking to execute DOGE trades at favorable prices.
DOGE Price Forecast: Road to $0.1?
From an on-chain standpoint, the rising whale demand is one of the fundamental factors driving the on-going DOGE price rally. With these indicator still on the uptrend, it puts Dogecoin price in good stead for further gains.
The Global In/Out of the Money (GIOM) data, which groups the current DOGE holders according to their entry prices, also confirms this bullish price prediction.
It however, shows that the bears must scale initial resistance at $0.50 to be confident of a parabolic breakout. As depicted below, 581,965 holders had bought 8.65 billion DOGE at the average price of $0.084, If those investors exit early, they could trigger a DOGE price correction.
But if the bulls can scale that sell-wall, Dogecoin price will likely reclaim $0.1 as predicted.

Still, the bears could negate the positive prediction if DOGE price dips below $0.075. But, in that case, the 481,050 holders that bought 42.3 billion DOGE at the average price of $0.076 could offer initial support.
If those investors HODL firmly, Dogecoin price will likely avoid a larger downswing.
