Worldsfeed Tech Desk: In the volatile world of cryptocurrencies, Dogecoin has taken the lead as the day’s biggest gainer among the top 10 digital assets, with a 1.41% increase, reaching US$0.06415. The surge in Dogecoin’s value can be attributed to the buzz surrounding Tesla owner Elon Musk’s upcoming biography. Expected to hit the shelves on September 12, the biography is rumored to shed light on Musk’s behind-the-scenes involvement in the development of the popular memecoin, a revelation that has only added to Dogecoin’s popularity.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin remained relatively stable during afternoon trading in Asia, hovering around US$25,724 as of 4:30 p.m. in Hong Kong. However, market experts are keeping a close eye on Bitcoin, with concerns about a potential downward trend. Lucas Kiely, Chief Investment Officer of digital asset platform Yield App, expressed his bearish outlook, suggesting that if Bitcoin were to dip below US$25,000, it could potentially fall further to around US$20,000. Kiely also mentioned the possibility of a price drop to approximately US$23,000 based on Fibonacci retracement analysis. The longer Bitcoin maintains its sideways trading pattern, the more likely it is to experience a significant price decline, according to Kiely.
Ether, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, experienced a slight dip of 0.18% during afternoon trading in Asia, reaching US$1,624. Over the past week, Ether saw a 1.24% decline in value.
In contrast, Toncoin emerged as the biggest loser among the top 10 cryptocurrencies, experiencing a 4.46% decline over the past 24 hours, with its value dropping to US$1.81. However, Toncoin demonstrated resilience by strengthening by an impressive 20.67% over the week.

As the cryptocurrency landscape continues to evolve, investors and enthusiasts eagerly await Elon Musk’s biography, hoping it will provide further insights into the fascinating world of digital assets and Elon Musk’s role in the development of Dogecoin. Meanwhile, Bitcoin and Ether face uncertain prospects, with market experts closely monitoring their movements for potential price shifts.
