Since hitting a record high of $ 0.73 in May, Dogecoin has lost more than 70% of its value-and has fallen 36% in the last month alone.

The cryptocurrency’s stellar growth has been boosted by promises of new technology updates, as well as Elon Musk, the permanent founder of Tesla and SpaceX. 

In a tweet dated July 9, musk took aim at both Bitcoin and [/linkethereum for its slow trading times. He added that it was “on merit”that Dogecoin was developed to minimise transaction costs.

One of the main drivers of the downward trend appears to be increased oversight by regulators. The audit focused primarily on stricter regulation of so-called stable coins, cryptocurrencies tied to the value of traditional Fiats, and consumer rights protection, but social media platforms also played a role. 

On July 10, TikTok banned influencers from promoting cryptocurrencies as part of a broader fight against the growth of finance-related content. The Platform was also a breeding ground for promoting various coin memes, including Dogecoin.
