Dogecoin has been dominating the memecoin space for some time now. But in terms of practicability and development, DOGE has always been lacking compared to SHIB. 2022 has been a tough year for Dogecoin.

When Elon Musk took over Twitter, DOGE put on a great show. This was done under the assumption that Dogecoin will be integrated with Twitter. But months after taking over, the dream is still a dream.

According to the latest data from CoinMarketCap, 48% of Dogecoin’s total supply is held by just 10 holders.

Top Dogecoin Holder Control 25.27% of the Supply

The top holder of Dogecoin controls 25.27% of the total supply. This is equivalent to 34,762,065,944.39 DOGE. The other top five shareholding ratios were 5.51%, 4.75%, 3.66%, and 2.79%.

There are currently 4,510,766 total addresses that hold dogecoin. Out of this, the top 10 holders control 48.03%. The top 20 holders control 54.76% and the top 50 holders control 62.95%.

This pattern of centralized supply control poses a big threat to DOGE. These whales can easily control and manipulate the price of the coin through a pump and dump. At any point in time, if the top holder decides to sell off, the community should brace for a dump. This is where decentralized control of the supply becomes a necessity.

At press time, Dogecoin is trading at $0.07214, representing a 2.25% spike in value over the last 24 hours. There was also a 104.62% spike in trading volume over the last 24 hours.
