Dogecoin open interest decline
DOGE has recently seen significant gains, rising over 7.5% in the past 30 days. However, the price started to turn down on May 22 and May 26, now trading 2.5% below its value from a week ago.

This decline coincides with a decrease in futures open interest (OI), which has dropped 37% from $1.67 billion in mid-April to $1.04 billion, according to Coinglass.

The funding rate for Dogecoin perpetual futures contracts also fell from 0.0243% on May 23 to 0.0118% on May 28.

Reduced funding rates and OI indicate bearish sentiment among traders, potentially increasing selling pressure on DOGE.
