What is the Dogecoin?
It is a rival cryptocurrency of Bitcoin, which was born as a result of a meme, a dog of the Shiba Inu breed, also known on the internet as Cheems. This is Musk’s favorite and he has not been shy about giving his opinion on it. Among the tweets are “Dogecoin is the crypto of the people” and “No ups and downs, just Doge .” After that, it increased its value by more than 50%.
