Why Dogecoin Is Diving Today

Shares of several popular altcoins, including Dogecoin DOGE/USD, are trading lower in sympathy with apex cryptocurrency Bitcoin BTC/USD and second-largest market cap crypto Ethereum ETH/USD

Crypto is likely trading lower in tandem with major U.S. indices. Major indices are lower following worse-than-expected May CPI data. Rising inflation has caused economic concerns and has also raised expectations for further Fed policy tightening.

According to data from Benzinga Pro, Dogecoin is trading lower by 5.82% to the $0.07-level Friday afternoon. Dogecoin is also lower by 34.21% over the trailing month amid ongoing weakness in the broader cryptocurrency market.
