CoinDesk Take

"In its most recent run-up, DOGE moved well into the top 10 list of most valuable cryptocurrencies with a market cap of more than $10 billion, overtaking much more "serious" coins. After while DOGE has given back a lot of those gains, it's well ahead of where it had fallen to in the past. It's still the 14th-most valuable crypto with a market cap of $6.27 billion and a per coin price of just under five cents at press time." That increase in price has incentivized its developers to make the technology underpinning that adorable Shiba Inu more robust and not just be about a pretty face.

Developers: “People say it’s a joke coin but we’re very careful to take care of the code. When it took off there was a resurgence in attention and we want to keep the currency operational,” DOGE lead maintainer Ross Nicoll recently told CoinDesk.
