Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency that was originally formed in 2018. Doge was built to have a ‘fun and friendly’ brand image behind it. The face of DOGE was the dog Shiba Inu, who became popular as the DOGE meme making Dogecoin the first ‘meme cryptocurrency’.

It was almost impossible to believe initially that DOGE would become as valuable as it is today. Up until it started to get the spotlight by Elon Musk’s tweets. Musk’s constant promotion and love for Dogecoin resulted in a lot of people buying large quantities of Dogecoin (DOGE), which drove up the prices from a 24 hour low of 0.10 dollars to 0.33 dollars a 200 per cent rise in the price as on April 16th. At the time of writing this article, the Dogecoin price stands at 0.33 dollars.

Although Dogecoin is unavailable for purchase through Coinbase, there are other options you may consider such as NDAX, Changelly, Uphold, Robinhood and Kraken.

Apart from all the glowing endorsements from Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Doge’s journey is all the more interesting because initially it was started as a joke! However, over the years, DOGE helped to spread awareness about the value and importance of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency among millions of people around the globe, making Dogecoin one of the most popular cryptocurrencies on the planet and the future of crypto.
