Started off as a meme, the Dogecoin [DOGE] has had its share of highs and lows. Dogecoin made its debut back in 2013 and was considered nothing but a mere joke. However, over the years, DOGE managed to surge significantly thanks to spontaneous endorsements from Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Most recently, during the COVID-19 pandemic, a TikTok video caused the altcoin to garner immense gains. It seems like DOGE had once again found its way back in the crypto spotlight.
DOGE rose on the crypto ladder in terms of price as well as market cap. This time, it wasn’t Musk. A Twitter account, WSB Chairman tweeted,
Has Doge ever been to a dollar?

This tweet along with a sub-Reddit platform, WallStreetBets seemed to have instigated the surge in the coin. Reddit was also responsible for the buzz around GameStop.
While DOGE failed to hit $1, it managed to secure profits up to 396.5% in the last 24-hours. The asset rose up to a high of $0.077, however, it slumped to $0.054 at press time. CoinGecko revealed that the altcoin had a great start to the new year as it had surged by over 1100%. The market cap of the asset wasn’t far behind. DOGE managed to find a spot on the top ten, yet, at the time of writing, it had occupied the position of the eleventh largest coin with a market cap of $6.7 billion.
