What is DogeCoin (DOGE)?

Dogecoin (DOGE) is an open-source digital currency based on the popular ‘doge’ internet meme that became popular in 2013. The coin’s logo features an image of a Shiba Inu dog, which the same dog featured in the popular meme. Originally hard forked from Litecoin, Dogecoin was created as a fun, quirky and light-hearted cryptocurrency that would appeal to a wider audience. DOGE acts as a peer-to-peer global digital currency for almost instant transactions for a fee as little as one cent. In contrast with the fact that DOGE was launched as a joke, it has received tremendous adoption in the past seven years of its existence.
