Reddit users, or redditors, in a / SatoshiStreetBets thread, have been encouraging traders to get the cryptocurrency up to $1, and this seems to have led to the current surge.

Users wrote messages like “NEED $1 Doge,” Let's make DOGIECOIN a thing,” and shared how much they bought in the thread.

Why It Matters: Dogecoin has previously experienced sudden price spikes. 

On Jan.2, the price went up by 125% after an adult film star tweeted in support of holding the cryptocurrency.

Before that, it saw price spikes around 20% every time Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA)’s CEO Elon Musk tweeted about it.
