Who Let the Dogs Out? Dogecoin Stomps the Competition by Gathering Triple-Digit Gains in 2 Weeks
Dogecoin (DOGE) has seen an incredible jump in recent times and it all started when Elon Musk officially took the reins of Twitter. Two-week metrics against the U.S. dollar show DOGE has jumped a whopping 116.3%, surpassing the gains recorded by crypto asset leaders like BTC and ETH.
Ever since the billionaire Tesla executive Elon Musk took over Twitter, dogecoin (DOGE) has skyrocketed in value. People suspect Musk may integrate dogecoin payments into the social media platform.
30-day statistics indicate DOGE is up 98.8% and over the last week, dogecoin gained 52.8% in value. Although, despite the mega gains during the last month, DOGE is still down 51.3% year-to-date and 82.5% lower than the $0.73 all-time high. During the past 24 hours, DOGE has had a price range between $0.122 and $0.134.
Doge is now the eighth largest coin in terms of market capitalization and the coin has seen $3.10 billion in 24-hour global trade volume. The DOGE market cap today is $17.5 billion according to today’s metrics and there’s a circulating supply of more than one hundred thirty-six billion DOGE.
