The Day of the Doge is finally here, as Dogecoin aims to breach the coveted $1 mark.
The Shiba Inu-themed meme cryptocurrency, founded by IBM Software engineers Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer in 2013, is ruling the roost like never before, a whole seven years later.
The popularity of the cryptocurrency is such that enthusiastic advocates of Dogecoin have decided to honor its unprecedented growth via a celebratory holiday on April 20th, called "Doge Day."
Moving forward, this date will no longer only be remembered as "International Weed Day," for another event of monumental significance is set to send shockwaves throughout the crypto world, that being none other than #DogeDay.
Also known as 420 day or "Elon Musk Day," April 20th serves to commemorate the meteoric and unprecedented growth of the digital cryptocurrency, which has arrested the attention of a global audience like never before.
Dogecoin's rise from a quirky internet meme to a widely traded asset makes for a remarkable success story that has left several financial pundits at their wit's end.
In light of Dogecoin's astonishing surge, supporters of the meme currency have gathered together in a celebratory fashion. They are marking the advent of a "Doge Day" as part of their latest bid to send the price soaring beyond the $1 mark.
