Dogecoin (DOGE) may have put main promoter Mark Cuban in hot water as it hits its lowest level against Bitcoin (BTC) in more than six months.
“Now evaluate it in bananas”
Data from TUSEN Markets Pro and TradingView showed DOGE / BTC trailed at 412 satoshis (0.00000412 BTC) on October 14 – down from highs of 1,284 satoshis (0.00001284 BTC) in April.
As Bitcoin massively overtakes altcoins this month, the pain has been particularly intense for Dogecoin investors after months of public campaigning by Cuba and others, including the world’s richest man, Elon Musk. .
Nothing has been able to reverse the fortunes of the memes-based cryptocurrency, however, and now frustrated commentators are even asking for an explanation.
Cuban was awaiting retaliation this week, with podcast host Preston Pysh suggesting his Dogecoin boasting on US national television at the Highs had been – to say the least – misguided.

His colleague Peter McCormack has joined calls for Cubans to comment on the situation in the context of the latter’s criticism of Bitcoin.
Twitter users further discussed Cuba’s claim that it would rather own bananas than BTC, poking fun at Dogecoin’s declining purchasing power when measured in the fruit.
In August, Cuba declared that he owned less than $ 500 in DOGE.
Has the DOGE had its day?
Musk, meanwhile, incorporated Dogecoin-derived cryptocurrencies into his advertising efforts, which also saw huge gains thanks to the more innocuous comments.

One such coin, Shiba Inu (SHIB), has since been sold substantially by high volume investors known as Whales.
However, the Tesla CEO did not escape the wrath of Bitcoiners earlier this year, with his Dogecoin business running up against allegations of investor manipulation.
As TUSEN reported, altcoins are set to experience a renaissance once Bitcoin hits its cycle peak, currently slated for early 2022.
