A popular pseudonymous crypto analyst, HORSE, has conveyed optimism about the potential for a rally in Dogecoin’s (DOGE) value. The trader, who has amassed a following of 183,000 on a well-known social media platform, analyzed DOGE’s performance and noted its recent move above a pivotal diagonal resistance on the weekly chart, which could signal an impending upsurge.

HORSE elaborated on the broader context of the current rise in risk assets and alluded to entrepreneur Elon Musk’s involvement with the social media platform referred to as “X.” This connection was used to reinforce the notion that Dogecoin, colloquially celebrated as the preferred “commoditized dog” of the digital world, faces limited downside risk. The trader’s analysis led to the conclusion that DOGE is likely to experience a bullish phase in the short term.

Dogecoin is currently trading at $00723, up 2.61% in the past 24-hour period.

On November 4, he shared his thoughts on the Ethereum vs. Solana debate. He expressed optimism about Solana’s potential in the cryptocurrency market but raised a thought-provoking point for those who might prematurely consider Ethereum (ETH) obsolete. He drew parallels between Ethereum’s situation and several historical examples where superior technology did not guarantee market dominance. He cited instances such as Linux’s robustness, the Betamax versus VHS debate, the competition between HD DVD and Blu-ray, IBM OS/2’s clash with Microsoft Windows, the overshadowing of Apple Lisa by Macintosh, the commercial failure of the Segway, the discontinuation of the Concorde, Google+’s inability to surpass Facebook, and the underutilization of WebOS.

HORSE emphasized that despite technological advancements, market leadership is not assured, as demonstrated by these examples. He pointed out that the tech landscape is replete with cases where the technologically superior product did not become the market leader or the chosen product among consumers, suggesting that Solana, despite its current bullish trend, still has significant challenges to overcome to secure a leading position in the market.
