Here's why you're going to be seeing DogeCoin memes on your Twitter and Facebook accounts
Here’s why DogeCoin is all over your Twitter and Facebook feeds
DogeCoin, initially designed, reached a milestone this Thursday when the price soared to over 25 cents, the first time the cryptocurrency exceeded 25 cents in value.
The market cap of DogeCoin — which started as a joke and is literally classified as “” — is currently just over $33 billion.
It’s the culmination of a semi-ironic movement that’s involved thousands of buyers, tens of thousands of online posters and the world’s richest man, Elon Musk.
Just like the Wall Street Bets Reddit(it got up to $483, short of the goal but a dramatic spike from the 52-week low of $3.77), cryptocurrency communities became attached to the idea of “sending” DogeCoin to 10 cents.
Now it’s soared past that goal and then some.
In early January, each token was worth less than one cent.
In late January, when both the GameStop and DogeCoin movements hit their stride, the value of DogeCoin shot up to 7.5 cents, well over a 10-magnification, before sliding down to 2.5 cents.
The coin has spent the past few months in the three- to seven-cent range.
On Sunday, its price began to rise, from around six cents, before it smashed the 10-cent milestone.
The surge from 10 cents to over 25 cents could be the result of Doge’s most high profile supporter, Elon Musk, tweeting out further support for the cryptocurrency.
In that last 24 hours he put out the following tweet:

If you’re familiar with cryptocurrency at all, you know Bitcoin and maybe Ethereum.
Those are the two biggest cryptocurrencies, but underneath them is an entire market of smaller ones called “altcoins” — or, sometimes, “shitcoins.” These are like the penny stocks of the cryptocurrency world.
Many aim or claim to have utility, or improve facets of the Ethereum blockchain, upon which most altcoins are built.
Others are “memecoins,” which rise and fall in popularity simply because they’re kind of funny.
Created in 2013, DogeCoin was the first such memecoin.
One simply called Meme launched last August at $1 and now trades at over $2,000.

UPDATE (10:12pm ET): Since the time of publication, Dogecoin has risen 24% to $0.2324.
$1,000 invested on Jan.
1, 2021 would now be worth $40,879.29.
Dogecoin (CRYPTO:DOGE) continues to trade higher in 2021.
The “meme currency” has trended on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) throughout 2021 with #dogecoin and #dogetothemoon among trending topics.
Traders have also pushed for Dogecoin to go to $1.
Dogecoin does not have a limited supply like other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.
The cryptocurrency has limited use but that hasn’t stopped traders from taking a small position in the meme currency.
The Dallas Mavericks even began accepting Dogecoin as a payment option at games in 2021.
Some of the swings in the cryptocurrency have been fueled by Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk who has posted about Dogecoin and shared memes of the cryptocurrency featuring a Shibu Inu dog.

Musk has tweeted about Dogecoin several times, pumping the cryptocurrency's price to new all-time highs.
On March 12, Musk encouraged Coinbase to add Dogecoin to its platform, and on April 1 Musk tweeted that he will be sending "a literal Dogecoin to the literal moon." Although this is likely just an April Fool's joke, Dogecoin still rose about 32% following Musk’s tweets.
Investing In 2021: If you were fortunate to throw a little money into Dogecoin at the beginning of 2021, the cryptocurrency could be one of the best performing assets in your portfolio.
Dogecoin opened for trading on Jan. 1 at $0.00468.
If you had invested $1,000 in Dogecoin at the highest price on Jan. 1 of $0.005685, you would have bought 175,901 Dogecoin.
Based on a price of $0.187 on Thursday, that same $1,000 investment would now be worth $32,983.
Not a bad return for investing or buying a meme currency.
Performance: Dogecoin is up 45% to $0.187 at publication time.
The cryptocurrency has a market cap of more than $22.7 billion, according to AssetDash.com.
Dogecoin ranks number 541 on the site’s list of stocks and cryptocurrencies by market capitalization.
Bitcoin has a market capitalization of $1.2 trillion.
Ethereum has a market capitalization of $289 billion.
