The infamous dogecoin was one of the first meme-based digital currencies and it’s safe to say that the coin inspired a myriad of meme-focused or joke tokens meant to be used for fun. However, while dogecoin has had a phenomenal 2021 rising 8,515% in 12 months, during the last month dogecoin prices have stagnated a great deal. At one time, dogecoin held the fourth largest market capitalization but today, the original meme-coin’s overall market valuation has slid to the ninth position.
Dogecoin Slips to the Ninth Largest Market Position After Price Highs Subside, 67% Down From ATH
At the beginning of the year, many people said that “you can’t keep a good dog down” after dogecoin (DOGE) started its triumphant price surge and continued to rise higher month after month. That’s because dogecoin has been around for years, and for many of those years, DOGE traded for less than a U.S. penny per unit. But thanks to a lot of social media activity, mainstream media headlines, celebrity and brand-name mentions, and a few tweets from Elon Musk, dogecoin reached an all-time high of $0.731 per coin on May 8, 2021.
Moreover, that week historical data shows that dogecoin (DOGE) held the fourth largest market cap on May 9. At the time, the DOGE market cap was above ADA’s overall market valuation, with $73.8 billion that week. However, the $0.73 high did not last long and by the following week, historical metrics indicate that DOGE slid to the fifth largest market capitalization with cardano (ADA) once again taking the lead on May 16. Today, DOGE markets have not been performing so hot and the meme-based crypto asset is down 67% from its all-time price high.
