The phenomenon bull run of Dogecoin was not predicted because the so-called “joke coin” has birthed a new generation of millionaires who bought the asset after Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk repeatedly tweeted about it.
Dogecoin, a Shiba Inu-themed token that started as a joke in 2013, has skyrocketed by 10,300% year-to-date, thanks majorly to well-known backers such as Elon Musk, Mark Cuban, the rapper Snoop Dogg, and the Kiss member Gene Simmons.
Because of dogecoin’s wild price swings, many people have reported profiting from the meme token, mostly younger retail investors with a higher risk appetite.
As investors have pumped more cash into dogecoin, the token has become the world’s fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, hovering at about $67 billion on Monday, according to CoinGecko.
Apart from making early investors millionaires, Dogecoin is also making headway as a payment option. Over the past weeks, several traditional companies have caught the DOGE fever and have started accepting payments in Dogecoin.
