Dogecoin, A Joke Dog-Meme Takes The Cryptocurrency Market By Storm With High Dogecoin Price
Dogecoin was based on a dog meme, which over the past two days has skyrocketed in value for two major reasons. One, Reddit users’ speculation on the dog-themed digital currency spiked the price of Dogecoin among other cryptocurrencies as a high-performing one. On Thursday, Elon Musk, Tesla and SpaceX CEO, shared a dog-themed magazine cover to rally support for Dogecoin.
The recent performance of Dogecoin was a result of a tweet from the king of Meme, Elon Musk. In the tweet, he declared his support for Dogecoin which could likely become the “currency of the internet”.

DOGE is presently 5,000% in 2021, which leaves Bitcoin’s performance over the same period in view in the shadows.
