Moneywise, Dogecoin cannot take the crown for being among the best performing cryptocurrencies in 2017. However, it takes the crown for being persistent and having a lively community on Reddit. Buying a Doge will cost you $0.003744 (as of December 13th, 2017). This means that for just $1, you get around 270 DOGEs. Unlike many new cryptocurrencies of 2017, this altcoin has never reached $0.005 price mark. As of 13th December, the market capitalization of the currency stood at $420.45 million. The Dogecoin currency (DOGE) in circulation stood at 112.31 billion DOGE.
Dogecoin was meant to be a funny cryptocurrency but it seems funny is no longer that good. Jackson Palmer who is behind the Dogecoin altcoin creation says a cryptocurrency crash is around the corner. Palmer who was an early fan of Cryptocurrency created the currency as a way to poke fun at the much-hyped digital currency in 2013.
