The Recent surge in cryptocurrency prices was characterized by massive gains in the prices of digital currencies, including that of Dogecoin. In the past, Dogecoin had been one of the poorest performers as far as price is concerned.
It is no secret that Dogecoin has been on the verge of being pushed out of the market due to poor performance. Cryptocurrencies experienced some downturn in November. Dogecoin was one of the worst hit of the bunch with its price going down all the way to $0.00077. However, the altcoin has recently been on a path of recovery courtesy of a surge that has seen the price go all the way up to an all-new high of $0.008768 on December 31.
The recent recovery in the price of Dogecoin not only highlights the fact it can still generate a lot of value. Here are some of the reasons why it is one of the digital currencies to keep an eye on.
It makes it easier for newcomers to understand cryptocurrencies
Dogecoin can be accessed through micro-wallets and faucets that make it easy to transact with at very little fees. This along with its price makes it easily accessible to many people especially those trying out the market for the first time. Its ability to transfer utility can be equated to larger coins and it also happens to be more fluid than other low-priced digital currencies.
It is quite resilient
This cryptocurrency has stood the test of time and has managed to survive severe price drops even as some other cryptocurrencies were kicked out of the market. Also, despite its sharp drop, there was still some noteworthy trading volume for Dogecoin. The fact that it has been stolen through hacking and has also been associated with scams and yet has survived is a demonstration of its resilience.
Dogecoin has a lot of room for growth
The altcoin is currently holding down the 36th position on CoinMarketCap with a market cap of $396 million. This highlights the fact that the cryptocurrency still boasts of a price that is well within reach, meaning it can be bought in volumes and it can also move to a higher price range. This also highlights the fact that it has some potential for growth.
Asian investors love Dogecoin
Investors from numerous Asian countries such China, Japan and Korea are highly accommodative of the cryptocurrency. Most of the people who trade this coin are from these countries. On a side note, it seems that having a dog meme as the cryptocurrency’s logo has paid off.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more. One of the ways to have a successful trading…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
