  • Despite selling most of Tesla’s Bitcoin (BTC) stash, Mr. Musk still holds $222M in crypto
  • Developers of Dogecoin (DOGE) launched a new website with ‘Dogepedia’, a source for DOGE-related info
  • Both memecoins Dogecoin (DOGE) & Shiba Inu (SHIB) are enjoying 6% gains in the last 24 hours

The dog-themed cryptocurrency that first came out as a joke has sentimental value for Elon ‘The Dogefather’ Musk, as the world’s richest man started The Boring Company as a joke too, only to become a prosperous project later. Last week, the CEO of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) announced that the company had to sell 75% of its Bitcoin (BTC) stash. But not a penny of DOGE, of course.

Dogecoin (DOGE) Is Here To Stay

Founded in 2013 by Billy Markus, DOGE will mark its 10th anniversary next year. Besides being a fun, less serious and more accessible alternative to BTC for many of the crypto enthusiasts, consistency is another very important factor.

The developers of Dogecoin (DOGE) announced a major update to the ecosystem just last week, with strong recommendations for the DOGE Army to upgrade as soon as possible. The new update includes a dramatic fee reduction, with the dust limit lowered to 0.01 DOGE from 1 DOGE. In addition, the upgraded security features and faster transaction speed should be enough to convince DOGE users to upgrade.

Furthermore, the programmers behind Dogecoin (DOGE) launched a brand new website today, including new features set to educate people about the popular memecoin. The upgraded version of Dogecoin.com now includes Dogepedia, an educational tool meant to fight against FUD, or in other words, misinformation.

However, there’s plenty of other reasons Dogecoin (DOGE) is now backed by celebrities like Mark Cuban, Ice Cube and others. To illustrate, Ice Cube successfully implemented Dogecoin (DOGE) into his 3 on 3 basketball league, empowering fans to become shareholders of any team they desire.

DOGE vs. SHIB: Let the Dog Race Begin

The rivalry between two dog-themed meme coins is heating up. Recently, Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) influencer MILKSHAKE added fuel to the fire by asking if the SHIB Army is going to surpass DOGE Army, as both memecoins got 3.4M followers on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR).

Originally known as the ‘Dogecoin’ Killer, Shiba Inu (SHIB) scored way more deals in 2022. The rival memecoin has a lot going on, with the $SHI stablecoin bound to see light of the day by the end of the year. Besides, there’s a clothing line, card game and a restaurant in the works for the SHIB Army. As Shiba Inu (SHIB) wants to bring their users the best of both worlds, the already vast community is sure to grow even bigger.

On the Flipside

  • Angry DOGE: the popular memecoin is used in organized crime, research reveals
  • Michael ‘Diamond Hands’ Saylor mocks Elon Musk for selling Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Both memecoins get shown the door at Crypto.com Earn program
  • The SEC is not happy about Mr. Musk’s tweet about quitting Twitter deal

Why You Should Care

The rivalry between the two memecoins ignited a bull run for Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB). The meme coin that comes out on top will most likely end the ‘memecoin era‘ faster.

The reason why is that he already lost his money on this trash coin and dumping it will drive it down to ZERO
