Dogecoin gains 50% in less than 24 hours highest single-day gain since 2017


The world of cryptocurrency got another shocker as a fast-growing altcoin gained 50% some hours ago, the highest single-day percentage gain since 2017. This was captured by a leading crypto researcher, Ryan Watkins.

Data from Coinmarketcap shows that the cryptocurrency is the 27th most valuable crypto asset, with a market capitalization of $528.3 million.

Dogecoin is presently trading at $0.004217 up 51.93% at the time this report was drafted.

Quick fact: Dogecoin is a type of digital coin that is decentralized, and facilitates peer-to-peer digital transactions. This means you can send money online with much ease. It’s usually referred to as “the internet currency.”

It is different from BTC’s proof-of-work protocol in many ways, one of which is the Scrypt technology. The fast-growing altcoin also has a block period of 1 minute, and the total supply is unlimited, meaning that there is no limit to the amount of Dogecoin that can be mined.

 The recent rise of dogecoin, a meme coin, should serve as a reminder to everyone in the space that the most popular use case for crypto is still pure speculation,” said Anil Lulla, a former analyst at Bloomberg and co-founder of cryptocurrency research firm, Delphi Digital.

Global search interest on “How to buy a dogecoin” has also skyrocketed from a score of 25 to 100, the highest possible search popularity score, over the past few days, according to 12-month Google Trends data analyzed by CoinDesk.

Some of the videos on TikTok, a newly popular social media platform, garnered more than 100,000 “likes,” while all videos with the “dogecoin” hashtag amassed several million.
