With the Coinbase Wallet’s addition of Dogecoin (DOGE), the wallet now supports a total of 7 cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin cash (BCH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Ripple (XRP), and Stellar Lumens (XLM).

Dogecoin (DOGE) History

Dogecoin was created in 2013 from a fork of Bitcoin (BTC) and was originally intended to be a joke currency. Its logo comes from a popular meme of the Shiba Inu dog, and its inventor Jackson Palmer purportedly meant for the coin to poke fun at the cryptocurrency hype in Silicon Valley at the time. Since then, Dogecoin has been surprisingly successful and has channeled its renown into supporting charities and good causes.

Moreover, as previously reported by IIB, Elon Musk jokingly said that Dogecoin (DOGE) was his favorite cryptocurrency and changed his Twitter bio to read “Former CEO of Dogecoin.”

Overall, the cryptocurrency is loved by many people in the space, and has endured the ups and downs prone in the crypto markets. Currently, the coin is trading at $0.002713, having gained 5.36% over the past 24 hours. The coin had a previous all-time high at $0.017 and has held up surprisingly well compared with many other shitcoins.
