Yesterday, it was the 33rd largest cryptoassets by market capitalization, today – it’s 7th. Created as a joke in 2013, dogecoin (DOGE), can’t stop its Wallstreetbets ignited super rally and is going parabolic for the second day now.
At the time of writing (05:26 UTC), DOGE trades at USD 0.0724 and is up by 502% in a day and 787% in a week. It skyrocketed by 1,554% in a month and 2,970% in a year, per Coingecko.com data.

This is the second coordinated DOGE pump in less than a year. Last summer, the TikTok community unsuccessfully tried to lift the price of the coin to USD 1.
DOGE market capitalization (USD 9.3bn) is now bigger than chainlink (LINK)’s (USD 9bn), litecoin (LTC)’s, stellar (XLM)’s. Bitcoin cash (BCH) and binance coin (BNB) have also been left behind.
The 24-hour DOGE trading volume hit almost USD 42bn, or more than ethereum (ETH)’s USD 35bn. Bitcoin (BTC) trading volume stands at USD 57.9bn. BTC trades at USD 32,995 and is up by 6% in a day and 7% in a week. ETH is up by 1.5%, to 1,297. It’s up by 16% in a week.
Meanwhile, Google searches for “dogecoin” surpassed “bitcoin” this week.
