“DOGE cryptocurrency for people, it is the currency of attention on the Internet” – MKBHD
One of the most popular tech reviewers, Marcus (or Marquez) Brownlee, MKBHD, shot a video about Dogecoin. The blogger explained the essence of Dogecoin, and also said that the greatest strength of DOGE is precisely that it does not pretend to be something honest, and that is why it can become popular (although he said several times that the video is not investment advice ).
As an example, he cited actor and comedian Will Rogers, who thought that most political campaigns were bullshit. To prove his point, in 1928 he staged a mock presidential campaign. His campaign promise was that if elected, he would step down. Every week, from Memorial Day to Election Day, Rogers caricatured the farcical humor of a serious political campaign. On election day, he announced his victory and resigned. Such a DOGE from the world of politics.
“DOGE is a harmless and simple cryptocurrency with which you can begin to understand how investments and trading work, which applications are more convenient for you to use, and so on, in order to then transfer this knowledge to a more serious plane. Anyway, it’s good to understand the joke now, and people will either launch DOGE to the moon or force until he dies, as is usually the case with memes on the Internet. “ – summed up MKBHD
PS if you suddenly do not subscribe to MKBHD, then we highly recommend that one of the very first and top tech bloggers on YouTube do it. And he, by the way, is one of those who inspire us to make our videos better technically.
$ 50 million a day!
Over the past week, the income of Bitcoin miners exceeded $ 354.4 million ($ 50 million per day), thereby breaking the previous record of $ 340 million, set in mid-December 2017.

There is a big difference between BTC growth in 2017 and 2021 – Bloomberg
Bloomberg analysts compared Bitcoin’s growth in 2017 and 2021 and said there is a big difference between the two races.
If four years ago the explosion in the market took place in just a couple of months, then in 2020-2021 the growth was gradual. Also, compared to the growth four years ago, the first cryptocurrency is now much less volatile.
This difference is caused by the entry into the crypto sphere of large investors such as Paul Tudor Jones. Then other market players began to buy bitcoin, including MicroStrategy and Square. The breakthrough event was the January purchase of BTC by Tesla.
