Dogecoin DOGE/USD was trading about 3% higher during Thursday’s 24-hour trading session in tandem with Bitcoin BTC/USD and Ethereum ETH/USD, which were trading about 3.6% and 3.8%, respectively.
The cryptocurrency sector, like the general market, is receiving bullish momentum after reacting positively to consumer price index data released on Wednesday, showing inflation may have peaked. The news has traders and investors hopeful the Federal Reserve may ease off hiking interest rates by an addition 0.75% in September, after raising rates by that amount in both June and July.
Positive sentiment may also be returning to the markets as summer comes to an end and traders and investors anticipate higher trading volumes across all sectors as more market participants return from their stock market vacations.
Dogecoin, which once received a massive amount of free advertising from celebrities and influencers, ranging from Kiss bassist Gene Simmons to billionaires Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk and Dallas Maverick’s owner Mark Cuban, has fallen from fame over the past many months. An overall uptick in Dogecoin’s trading volume recently, however, may indicate positive sentiment is returning to the crypto, which could eventually release Dogecoin from the dog house and bring back its celebrated status.
