Will Dogecoin Hit $3?

The crypto rally shows signs of continuing, and Dogecoin is poised to be a key player. The memecoin is echoing some technical signals seen during its 2021 surge, recently breaking out of a long-term descending triangle pattern. This breakout suggests the potential to reach $3 in the coming days. Currently, Dogecoin is trading near $0.15. Adding further fuel to the fire, on-chain metrics like new users have shown solid growth over the past six months, indicating continued interest in the project.
