Dogecoin Funding Rate Drops 50%: What It Means

- Advertisement -
  • The over 50% decline in Dogecoin’s OI-weighted funding rate was a sign of bearish sentiment.
  • Prices and open interest for dogecoin have fluctuated significantly recently.

Dogecoin’s price has dropped significantly over the last day, much like the rest of the cryptocurrency market. But this slowdown goes beyond price; the meme coin’s open interest-weighted funding rate has likewise fallen precipitously.

Dogecoin Funding Rate Drops 50% OI-Weighted

The OI-weighted funding rate increased along with the Dogecoin price during the last few days. This is typical since market mood affects the funding rate.

As long traders have to pay short traders to maintain their positions open, the funding rate rises during extremely bullish crypto trading. In contrast, funding rates fall and short traders pay long traders to hold onto their positions when sentiment turns bearish.

Exchanges need funding rates in order to balance contract prices with the prices of underlying assets, independent of market environment. Exchanges bill these costs periodically, but the length of time between each charge varies.

Bearish Turn in Market Sentiment

The recent decline in the Dogecoin OI-weighted funding rate suggests that investor sentiment is bearish. On Thursday, when Dogecoin’s price hit $0.17, the funding rate adjusted for OI hit 0.0243%.

But as the price has retreated to $0.16, Coinglass data shows that the OI-weighted funding rate is now at 0.0105%. This drop of more than 50% shows how fast, for a cryptocurrency like Dogecoin, opinion can shift. Should Dogecoin prices bounce back, the OI-weighted open interest is probably going to increase once more.

Open Interest Drops

Open interest has suffered along with the price drop for Dogecoin. A 10% drop on Wednesday, May 22, wrecked its comeback to almost $1 billion and sent it back to about $900 million.

The majority of this fall happened within the last 24 hours, as Coinglass data reveals significant losses on all of the big exchanges. Open interest fell the most on the Kraken cryptocurrency exchange, down 35.94%.

CoinMarketCap statistics shows that the price of DOGE is now about $0.1644, up 5.69% in the previous day. Dogecoin has also been trending upward over the last week, rising by 6.84%.
