Dogecoin (DOGE) Silently Making WOW Strides

Dogecoin (DOGE) is cool and has been the fan favorite for memes and jokes in the Crypto-verse. But unbeknownst to most Crypto enthusiasts, DOGE is making some strides in the background in terms of popularity, project development, and market gains.

How popular is Dogecoin (DOGE)? WOW!

As much as the above title puts a smile on the reader’s face, DOGE has gained lots of popularity due partly to its mascot, the Shiba Inu Japanese breed of Dog. The mascot has become popular that even a Dutch TV channel (RTL Z) had placed a twitter banner with the famous dog on a rocket ship on the 19th of March this year.

Secondly, there is news of DOGE developers creating a DOGE to Ethereum (ETH) bridge. Back in February, this bridge was tested when DOGE was sent to Ethereum’s Rinkeby Testnet where it became a distinct ERC20 asset on that blockchain. This even marked what many believe was the first incident of two blockchains communicating and a point to improve on to finally have blockchain interoperability across the Crypto-verse. The technology dubbed truebit that made this possible is also one of the efforts on the Ethereum platform to try and solve the scalability issues faced by it.

Thirdly, there was a release of an update to Dogecoin Core software on Github less than 3 weeks ago. This update named 1.14 alpha 3, is the third release of Dogecoin Core 1.14 and has fixed some bugs that had been identified in the previous release. There is still some more work to be done before the final release of the complete 1.14 version. This means that users need to be comfortable compiling the software themselves.

The biggest factor in the popularity of DOGE is the community backing the project and coin. The community numbers 117,553 members on Reddit and each member has mastered the DOGE language. This language simply shortens sentences with signature comments such as WOW! The community is very organized and they get together when there is a need in the DOGE community including sponsoring a Nascar race car back in 2014.

Current market analysis puts DOGE at a value of $0.0047 and down 2.22% in 24 hours. The coin is ranked 46 according to coinmarketcap.com and has a current market capitalization of $545.44 Million. This proves that DOGE is no laughing matter! WOW!

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV

Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…

Litecoin and Ripple also recorded some percentage increase in the tune of 53.20 percent and 16.12 percent respectively. It is no just these few popular coins that have gained in one week. From what we have gathered, 94 digital coins amongst the leading 100 cryptocurrencies are also experiencing the rise in price. This information is according to what TradingView published in April 2019.

According to them also, other cryptocurrencies gained in value while others declined. From their calculations, six digital currencies advanced while ninety-four was on the decline. Also, another information shows that the increase in Bitcoin price has reduced the value of other assets such as bonds and stocks.
