An Internet joke that may have gone too far, Dogecoin now makes up 1% of the total value of the biggest 250 cryptocurrency coins as of October 2021 – which is no small feat.
Created back in 2013, only the smallest pockets of the Internet could see Dogecoin growing to what it is today. While its current value is not much compared to the crypto giants, Dogecoin’s price has soared in price since its inception and peaked at $0.73 back in May 2021. The current price of Dogecoin is $0.25, which is 2% higher than what it was only one month ago.
