The Evolution of Digitalized Currencies

New York, NY — (SBWIRE) — 05/27/2021 — Bitcoin is an area of financial technology that continues to evolve, often outside of the parameters of historic expectations. Dogecoin is a prime example of the unusual ways in which such an emerging market can take off. It was established in 2013 as a joke but is now the sixth largest digital coin and has a total market value of $42 billion. The coin draws inspiration from the ‘doge’ memes and has recently hit a record high thanks to some serious celebrity endorsements on social media. With Elon Musk and Mark Cuban both recently tweeting in support of this meme-inspired currency, Dogecoin hit a record high of 45 cents in April. Musk in particular is a big fan of Dogecoin and has called it his favorite cryptocurrency and “the people’s crypto.” It remains to be seen whether this is a sustainable development or – as many investors have voiced – a speculative bubble.
