Dogecoin metric rise over the year

Although at press time, the meme coin is on a decline and has been over the past seven days, however, this does not diminish the success the meme coin has enjoyed so far in the year.

The meme coin has recorded landmark gains outstripping the largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC), in the number of related internet search queries.

Doge has emerged as the fastest-growing digital currency since 2021, began posting up to 13,500% growth year-to-date, and surging from just $0.005 to an all-time high of $0.68 on May 7.

Dogecoin’s recent tumble came after Musk called the meme token a “hustle” on SNL, adding that it’s “as real” as a dollar bill. However, the meme coin is having a run for its recent surge as a clone, and rival coin, Shiba Inu, has been surging above it recently.

The coin has broken to a new ATH but has seen a 13 percent decline at press time.
