An upgrade on the Dogecoin network earlier this month caused an issue with network withdrawals, according to Binance. The crypto exchange said a very small number of its users were affected, adding that some previously failed Dogecoin withdrawal transactions were resent after the update.
Binance went on to request the affected users to return the assets. The crypto exchange responded to Elon Musk’s tweet by saying it is not shady, just frustrating.

Dogecoin Could Still Rally Higher in 2021
Dogecoin is one of the best-performing coins since the start of the year. Year-to-date, DOGE’s price has increased by more than 4,600%. However, the cryptocurrency has underperformed in recent months.
At press time, DOGE is trading at $0.21, down by 1.4% over the past 24 hours. The coin has lost more than 24% of its value over the past three months. Despite its recent performance, Dogecoin remains one of the top ten cryptocurrencies by market cap and the leading meme coin, ahead of Shiba Inu.
Dogecoin could rally higher over the coming weeks and months if the broader cryptocurrency market recovers from the current bearish trend.
