Kaleo, widely known in the cryptocurrency community as Crypto Kaleo, is a prominent trader and analyst with a substantial following on social media, particularly Twitter. He is well-regarded for his market analysis, trading strategies, and insights on a variety of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and altcoins.

On 17 May 2024, Kaleo expressed his anticipation for an imminent surge in Dogecoin (DOGE) on the social media platform X, suggesting that the cryptocurrency is poised for significant upward movement. In a later clarification to a follower, Kaleo explained that while his short-term predictions for Dogecoin usually indicate a move higher, there is also a possibility of a short-term dip before an eventual rise. He emphasized the importance of continuing to accumulate Dogecoin regardless of short-term fluctuations.

On the same day, Kaleo elaborated on his bullish stance towards Dogecoin, drawing parallels between the recent meme stock mania involving companies like GameStop (GME) and AMC Entertainment Holdings (AMC) and the behavior of retail investors. He observed that the resurgence in meme stocks demonstrates that retail traders and investors are once again embracing risk. This risk-on mentality has been evident in the cryptocurrency market over the past year, particularly with the explosion of various memecoins (such as Pepe and Dogwifhat).

Kaleo highlighted Dogecoin’s enduring status as the leading memecoin, noting its deep-rooted familiarity among retail investors and the cryptocurrency community. He pointed out that Dogecoin was the original meme that inspired belief in the potential of a community-driven cryptocurrency movement. Despite market fluctuations, he asserted that Dogecoin is far from obsolete.

Kaleo argued that as soon as Dogecoin begins to attract more buying interest, it is likely to experience a sharp vertical movement. He noted that the cryptocurrency community is currently saturated with numerous options, while retail investors are eager for the kind of excitement they recently experienced with meme stocks like GME and AMC. Kaleo believes it is only a matter of time before Dogecoin gains momentum again and emphasized his determination not to miss out on the opportunity when it happens.

At the time of writing, DOGE is trading at around $0.1547, flat on the day. Its $22.3 billion market cap makes it the 10th most valuable cryptoasset. In the year-to-date period, DOGE is up 71.22%.
