Dogecoin spiked as much as 34% to an all-time high of $0.095896 on Tuesday, bringing its total market capitalization above $11 billion, according to CoinDesk data.

The cryptocurrency that began as a joke based off of the "doge" meme has now rallied 1,905% this year, with help from high-profile backers like Elon Musk and Snoop Dogg.

Dogecoin wasn't the only coin to reach new heights Tuesday.

Bitcoin soared to an all-time high above $63,000, while Ether hit a new record above $2,200.

Meanwhile Ripple's XRP token surged 28% to its highest point in over three years.

The current stage of the bull market cycle and Coinbase's direct listing later this week are likely pushing dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies higher, said Adam Levine, managing director of podcasts and audio at Coindesk, who added that there typically isn't just one factor that drives up the price of the meme token.

"One of the things that's interesting about doge is that whenever there's kind of excitement around cryptocurrency, people who don't really know a lot about cryptocurrencies get pulled into the doge ecosystem," Levine told Insider.

"And that's partly because it's cute, and it's not intimidating.

It's partly because the tokens are very cheap."

Momentum could also be pushing up dogecoin's price right now, he said.

A lot of early backers of dogecoin considered it "dead" coming into this year, and the coin's wild rally was largely unexpected.

Now that the price has stayed elevated, it appears to be ticking higher when the broader crypto market gains.

Dogecoin Cash (DOG) and DogeCash (DOGEC) have names that sound similar to the meme veteran Dogecoin


Dogecoin Cash (DOG) and DogeCash (DOGEC) have names that sound similar to the meme veteran Dogecoin (DOGE) but that is where the resemblance ends.

Let’s see how they differ: 

The Numbers: DOGE traded 1.24% higher at $0.073 at press time on Tuesday, while DOGEC traded 16.54% higher at $0.072.

DOG traded at USD Coin 0.003 at press time, according to, which makes it roughly equal to the same amount in dollars.

In terms of market capitalization, DOGE is at no.

16, while DOGEC is at no.

1656 on CoinMarketCap’s list of currencies arranged by that metric.

Data for DOG is unavailable.

DOGE has a market cap of $9.4 billion, while DOGEC’s market capitalization is $1.05 million. 

DOGE’s 24-hour trading volume was valued at $ 2.9 billion.

As for DOGEC the trading volume was at $11.69, as per CoinMarketCap data.

On a year-to-date basis, DOGE has risen 1,457.59%, while DOGEC has risen 727.59%.

The Pedigree: DOGE came to being as a joke cryptocurrency in 2013 and was created by Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus.

The latter told Benzinga last month in an interview that the main thing that separates DOGE from the rest of the cryptocurrency pack is that it is a “lighthearted, friendly and amusing” meme. 

DOG touts itself as the “people’s cryptocurrency” on Ethereum (ETH) and Binance Smart Chain.

The cryptocurrency is a new entrant and was announced on Feb.


The launch statement listed BOTS, Inc, a company in the robotic automation and manufacturing industry along with BTZI’s incubation client Tipestry and Dogecoin Cash Public Benefit Corporation as developers of the Decentralized Finance token.

The DOGEC blockchain was launched in October 2018, according to the Dogecoin Cash white paper.

James Stewart is listed as the lead developer on DOGEC’s website.

He is listed as a self-taught programmer whose projects include servers, chat servers, web design, cryptography tools, and more.

A Different Animal: Perhaps the main key difference between the three coins is that while Dogecoin put no cap on supply when it was launched, DOG and DOGEC are capped at 128.28 billion (approx) and 21 million coins respectively.

DOG is a community-driven project created by a group of passionate Dogecoin enthusiasts.

Our goal is to advance Dogecoin into the DeFi age with a fixed supply of $DOG i.e.

On Monday, Kronos Advannced Technologies Inc (OTC:KNOS) said it had exchanged its entire holdings in First Bitcoin (BIT) — no relation to Bitcoin (BTC) — to DOG.

The DOG announcement led to a raly in the shares of Kronos.

According to the project’s webpage, the cryptocurrency is earned by posting on Tipestry, and does not involve proof-of-concept mining, and thus claims to be environmentally friendly.

On the other hand BTC and DOGE require Proof of Work, which is thought to be an electricity hog.

BTC traded 0.01% lower at $60,558.59 at press time. 

DOGEC is looking for the average investor to get involved through its creation of DogeNodoes and the utilization of Proof of Stake.

DOGE has a fan following spanning Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk to Snoop Dogg.

Recently “Shark Tank” fame investor Mark Cuban said his basketball team, the Dallas Mavericks, would accept the Shiba Inu-themed cryptocurrency for ticket and merchandise sales.

DOGEC so far it seems has not found such love from high-profile celebrities. 

Benzinga’s Take: It’s the most likely scenario that the similarly-named projects are benefiting from sharing a name with the apex meme lord of the cryptocurrency world and the rally in Kronos shares may have been misplaced.

Such a scenario won’t be unknown to the followers of the meme investing world, where Musk has sent assets ranging from Shiba Inu (SHIB) to MarsCoin (MARS) skyrocketing “accidentally.”
