In January 2021, crypto traders around the world imagined the prospect of DogeCoin reaching the 10-cent ($ 0.01 / Dogecoin) price mark. However, things have changed dramatically in just a few months.

Accordingly, at 13:00 on May 5, DogeCoin hit $ 0.69 / 1 Dogecoin – the highest price ever of a cryptocurrency that was born to be ‘meme’. Currently, Dogecoin’s price is trading at $ 0.66 mark.

Dogecoin was born to be a joke, but its capitalization is no longer a joke.

Dogecoin’s price jump is by no means accidental. In fact, it started with a tweet by billionaire Elon Musk. As one of Dogecoin’s most ardent supporters, tweets from the Tesla CEO tend to cause the cryptocurrency’s price to skyrocket.

Accordingly, the price of the cryptocurrency suddenly skyrocketed at a time a week ago, when Elon Musk tweeted about The Dogefather (Elon Musk’s pun, Doge and Godfather works. and his upcoming performance on the hit show Saturday Night Live on May 8.

As of now, Dogecoin is the 5th largest cryptocurrency by market cap, after Bitcoin, ETH, and BNB.
