Dogecoin has caught many online user’s attention in the cryptocurrency world after Tesla CEO Elon Musk endorsed it.
Dogecoin was created by United States-based programmer Billy Markus and directly inspired tons of Doge memes. Despite being introduced as a joke cryptocurrency back in 2013, it has since managed to build a sustainable community on Reddit and Twitter.
Musk has actively discussed more than a few times about Dogecoin, though his statements are sometimes somewhat contradictory. In April 2019, Musk tweeted that DOGE might be his favourite cryptocurrency and that he finds it to be “pretty cool.” December 20, 2020 Musk changed his Twitter bio to “Former CEO of Dogecoin” and went ahead to tweet,
“One word: Doge.”
This led to price rallies of 25% on Binance. Recently on January 9, 2020, when asked by a Twitter follower about DOGE, he replied with “maybe one day”.
No, but maybe one day

Experiencing a period of volatility, since the end of July 2020, Ethereum DeFi has received a lot of attention from the shark. There are certain cryptocurrencies in DeFi’s Ethereum that have skyrocketed by tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands, in just the past few months. DOGE’s growth is expected to be inevitable.
Dogecoin will continue to be generated indefinitely albeit in a decelerated manner on the Dogecoin network. The combination of these factors suggests that the rally of DOGE could mark the start of a new altcoin cycle in the foreseeable future.
