Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency that was created on December 6th, 2013 based on the popular "Doge" Internet meme and features a Shiba Inu on its logo.
The codebase of the project was a fork of Litecoin, in which most of the same features such hash hashing algorithm were inherited, with the only difference of branding and large inflationary supply.
Introduced as a "joke currency", Dogecoin quickly developed its own online community and reached a capitalization of US$60 million in January 2014. Compared with other cryptocurrencies, Dogecoin had a fast initial coin production schedule: 100 billion coins were in circulation by mid-2015, with an additional 5.256 billion coins every year thereafter. As of 30 June 2015, the 100 billionth Dogecoin had been mined.
Dogecoin was created by Billy Markus from Portland, Oregon and Jackson Palmer from Sydney, Australia. Both wanted to create a fun cryptocurrency that will appeal beyond the core Bitcoin audience. Dogecoin is primarily used as a tipping system on Reddit and Twitter where users tip each other for creating or sharing good content. The community is very active in organising fundraising activities for deserving causes.
The developers of Dogecoin haven’t made any major changes to the coin since 2015. This means that Dogecoin could get left behind and is why Shibas are leaving Dogecoin to join more advanced platforms like Ethereum. One of Dogecoin strengths is its relaxed and fun-loving community. However, this is also a weakness because other currencies are way more professional.
Dogecoin in 2021
Fast forward today in 2021, Dogecoin has grown so much and have gathered the mainstream attention. It has become a meme that is used by the likes of Tesla billionaire, Elon Musk and even more so spunned off even more meme coins into the market.
On May 8th, 2021 the cryptocurrency recorded an all-time-high market cap of nearly $90 billion and trading at a price of $0.70 per DOGE. That is nearly +141,000% increase since its inception in 2013.
Dogecoin followers have always been asking if Dogecoin would ever reach $1. It is hard to say where the price action will go, but high volatility seem to be mainstay as the utility of the cryptocurrency remains unclear being a meme coin.
