User deadrail had stated:
“Honestly I’d be happy if dogecoin hit 50 cents to 3 bucks this year in q4 when all the coins rise. And if it hit 20 next year. Then if it got between 30-100 four to five years from now.Honestly 20 bucks a coins is what I’m hoping for in the future.”
The spike in Dogecoin’s value earlier coincided with the cryptocurrency’s addition to Poloniex, a cryptocurrency exchange as well as the news of a proposed Dogecoin- Ethereum[ETH] bridge. The project titled ‘Dogethereum’, marks a significant step in the cryptocurrency’s development, with the project still under evaluation.
Alex Van De Sande, a member of the Ethereum Foundation had recently tweeted:
“The Dogethereum team is still working hard on the bounty, and now they will present work in order to reach a new milestone for 746 ether. All information is being made public beforehand so the public and the judges can make a decision”
Dogecoin has surpassed a lot of user expectations, with the cryptocurrency which had started off as a joke, even entering the top 20 cryptocurrency club last week. The temporary membership in the top 20 club came after a bullish spike that increased Dogecoin’s market cap to $670 million, surpassing that of ZCash’s $620 million.
