The ironic cryptocurrency Dogecoin has taken on a new layer of seriousness today.
What Happened: Dogecoin as of time of publication was trading at 0.011 cents, according to TradingView. That's more than a 125% increase for the day and a break past the psychologically significant one-cent mark.
Dogecoin has traditionally been viewed as a parody of the cryptocurrency world. But it nonetheless is a real cryptocurrency and therefore just as capable of delivering returns as Bitcoin.
Dogecoin also recently got a boost after Tesla CEO Elon Musk mentioned it on Twitter, albeit in a non-flattering light.
The altcoin may also have gotten a boost by a tweet from adult film star Angela White, who said she's been an investor since 2014. The tweet came out on Friday night right as the price surge began.
