Dogecoin

The dog also became the face of Cryptocurrency Dogecoin, which started as a joke coin and is now associated with Watford Football Club. The meme was sold as a non-fungible token (NFT) in 2021 for $4 million

The cryptocurrency was created in 2013 by software engineers Billy Marcus and Jackson Palmer as a joke, without intending it to become very popular.

It was meant to mock the hype surrounding cryptocurrencies at the time. Despite its humorous origins, Dogecoin has gained a following and is sometimes viewed as a legitimate investment opportunity. The cryptocurrency features the Shiba Inu dog from the popular “doge” meme as its logo and namesake.

Dogecoin quickly developed an online community and at one point reached a market cap of over $85 billion.

Its price has seen fluctuations, peaking in early 2018 and another spike in 2020 following the TikTok trend. In 2021, Dogecoin made headlines when world rich man Elon Musk backed the cryptocurrency.
