DOGE is a peer-to-peer digital currency started as a parody on a dog meme based on a real Japanese Shiba Inu named Kabosu. DOGE was introduced in December 2013, and currently has a market capitalization of $331 million according to Coinmarketcap. With today’s announcement, DOGE has joined Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which were added to the platform last week.
Dogecoin has no limit to how many coins can be mined, with over 115 billion currently in circulation. DOGE reached a $1 billion market capitalization in January of this year, when it was worth more than the Japanese yen.
