Tesla’s recent business forecast is enough to spark discussions about its potential impact on Dogecoin’s price in 2024. Elon Musk, often dubbed the ‘Dogefather’ and known for his influence on the coin’s value, is facing competition in the auto sector.
Tesla’s business dwindled to competition
Bloomberg recently reported that Tesla is giving its popular model ‘Model Y’ a makeover at its China plant. As per the report, the electric car giant is planning mass production of the SUV by mid-2024. Meanwhile, Morgan Stanley’s Adam Jonas anticipates 2024 to be challenging for Tesla’s auto segment.
Another report by Business Insider reveals that Chinese car manufacturer BYD is expected to surpass Tesla as the world’s largest EV maker based on upcoming Q4 data, adding another layer to this story.
DOGE’s derivative market and price action
Turning to Dogecoin’s performance, CoinGecko outlines a lukewarm price action in the last two weeks. At press time, the DOGE price is mute with slight gains over 24 hours. However, it continues to hold a significant market cap of $13.24 billion, despite being 87% away from its record peak of $0.73 achieved in May 2021.
But the derivatives market reveals some profit-taking. Based on data from Coinglass, Dogecoin shows a 29% decline in volume and stands at $735 million. With some increase in open interest, the long/short ratio stands at 0.9677. This signifies that there are slightly more accounts with short positions than with long positions on Dogecoin, but overall, it’s a neutral market.
What is noteworthy is a Whale Alert signal that recorded a transfer of 71 million DOGE, worth approximately $6.39 million, from an unknown wallet to Robinhood on Tuesday.
