Billion-dollar market activity? Shout-outs from Elon Musk? An enigmatic presence? We're not talking about BTC or Satoshi... baby, we're talking Dogecoin (DOGE). In the eight years since DOGE crashed the party, the coin has only continued to grow in popularity and scale.
DOGE was created in 2013 by IBM engineer Billy Markus and Adobe software engineer Jackson Palmer, who wanted to create a Bitcoin alternative that was intended to be diametrically opposed to the serious, volatile and controversial atmosphere surrounding cryptocurrency at the time. Yet what started as a light-hearted gag has in 2021 developed into something much more serious; Already this year DOGE has seen price jumps of 800%/24h and even briefly beat out XRP in overall market-cap at $54 Billion USD.
"People are talking about Dogecoin going to $1 - that would make the 'market cap' larger than actual companies that provide services to millions, such as Boeing, Starbucks, American Express, IBM. Does Dogecoin deserve that? That is not something I can comprehend, let alone answer."

ℹ️ Why use stablecoins? We recommend using stablecoins like USDC or QCAD as they don't fluctuate in price like BTC or ETH. If the price of a coin you were using to purchase DOGE spiked or dropped as you were going through your purchase, your final amount of DOGE could be affected.
When you're ready, you can transfer the token you purchased on Newton to your exchange of choice (like Kraken or Binance). Once the transfer is completed, you'll be able to trade DOGE to your heart's content.
