If you are still wondering to make a decision on investing in Doge coin, here is a simple analogy by Doge Army Major. If you are beginner, let us try to understand what is dogecoin, its history and specialty.

Dogecoin and its history

Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency from which an internet meme takes its name. It began as a way to ridicule the industry, but a vibrant group of enthusiasts was quickly built up. Since 2013, it has come a long way, reaching a $2 billion market cap in the January 2018 crypto craze at its height.

  • The large number of altcoins that cropped up in 2012-13 could not be believed by Jackson Palmer, an Adobe employee. As a joke, he sent out a tweet saying he was investing in Dogecoin, a fake coin that was common at the time, based on the Shiba Inu dog meme.
  • While he tweeted in good humour, there were a few people who felt he was on to something. They said a light-hearted token was really needed by the industry that could fight the more divisive coins on offer. So Palmer teamed up to make Dogecoin a reality with Billy Markus, a programmer.
  • Dec 2013-Dogecoin was founded by Jackson Palmer
  • June 2014-The Dogecoin Foundation is set up to preside over the code of the currency
  • April 2015- Jackson Palmer, co-founder, leaves Dogecoin
  • January 2018-The market cap of $2 billion briefly exceeds
  • May 2019-The famous Coinbase Wallet is added to Dogecoin
  • Elon Musk says Dogecoin is the best cryptocurrency in March 2020
