Dogecoin, started as ‘Meme’, market cap makes it bigger than these 5 companies

Dogecoin needs to be taken more seriously

Dogecoin, a meme-inspired cryptocurrency that was started as a joke in 2013, became the fourth largest cryptocurrency with more than $86 billion market cap.

The rally in Dogecoin was initially sparked by a series of tweets from Elon Musk earlier this year. An overall increase in demand for crypto among investors following Bitcoin’s surge to more than $60,000 and the direct listing exchange platform Coinbase like also helped support the continued rally in Dogecoin.

Now, traders are bidding up DOGE even higher, potentially in anticipation of Elon Musk’s hosting of Saturday Night Live. Even some congressman have gotten in on the Dozecoin craze, with house member Mark Green disclosing that he purchased the cryptocurrency earlier last month.

Dogecoin differs from Bitcoin in that there is no hard limit on the total supply of coins. Bitcoin has a fixed supply of about 21 million coins, of which not all have been mined yet. DOGE on the other hand has more than 129 billion coins outstanding, with 5 billion in new coins hitting the supply every year.
