Dogecoin price shows bullish reaction

The aforesaid transaction coincided with a substantial Dogecoin price increase as the meme coin added 4.45%, reaching the $0.15676 level. This was not a linear rise but rather a curve that made three rises and two declines.

The price surge was followed by a marginal rebound, pushing DOGE to the $0.15438 mark, where the meme cryptocurrency is changing hands as of this writing.

DOGE founder makes gloomy AI prediction

One of the two Dogecoin founders, Billy Markus, known as Shibetoshi Nakamoto on the X app (formerly Twitter) has published a negative AI outlook on his account. This, however, seems to be rather a post of irony than an actual prediction — Markus referred to the classic Matrix movie, where Neo awakens in the capsule outside the virtual illusion and sees that humans in reality are being grown by machines.

“How long do y’all think we have until AI takes over humanity?” Markus tweeted, addressing his 2.1 million followers. Markus is known for his ironic views on the crypto and tech spaces.
