Dogecoin was launched in 2013 and has been one of the most popular cryptocurrencies. It entered the list of top 10 largest cryptocurrencies according to market capitalization earlier in the year. This year, DOGE has risen by over 50%, largely due to Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, who promoted DOGE via Twitter in 2020.
According to CoinGecko data, DOGE has risen nearly 5,100% in the past 365 days compared to Ether’s 632% increase. Bitcoin, however, is up about 160% in the past year.
I am a technology and gaming writer by profession. I love NFT’s and play to earn gaming such as Axie Infinity. I love writing about anything on the blockchain, especially gaming and entertainment. I often sing, write or draw to portray my feelings. When it comes to my free time or you can say ‘ME-TIME’, I love to play with my cat, sleep an extra hour, or play my favorite video games.
