Dogecoin started from an internet meme as a joke but its passionate community helped grow the cryptocurrency to a $336 million market cap (at the time of writing).
DOGE is similar to Bitcoin but it's much easier to mine (or "dig' as its referred to in the DOGE protocol). Unlike Bitcoin, DOGE has an unlimited supply and more than 120 million coins have already been mined.
In 2013, the founder of Dogecoin, Jackson Palmer, tweeted "Investing in Dogecoin, pretty sure it's the next big thing" with a picture of an internet-famous Shiba Inu (Doge). Palmer's tweet went viral and caught the attention of a part-time blockchain developer who decided to turn the meme into a real cryptocurrency.
Interest in Dogecoin quickly grew on social media with the help of its active Reddit community. In 2019, Elon Musk jokingly took the position as the CEO of Dogecoin, spreading its already viral acclaim as the king of the crypto meme.
As awareness spread, so did the market cap and price of Dogecoin, catapulting it into a legitimate alternative to popular coins.
