Will Dogecoin Reach $1 By 2022?

Every week, Benzinga conducts a survey to collect sentiment on what traders are most excited about, interested in or thinking about as they manage and build their personal portfolios.

This week we posed the following question to Benzinga visitors: Over the next year, will Dogecoin reach $1? 

For the uninitiated, Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) was introduced as a joke in 2013 to help raise public awareness of the capabilities of blockchain technology.

The cryptocurrency’s mascot, the Shiba Inu, is based on the “doge” internet meme.

Though Dogecoin was originally intended as a joke, it’s gaining momentum in 2021 thanks to its passionate online community. 

A brief history of the cryptocurrency reveals Dogecoin has been involved in a number of highly public news stories, including its successful $50,000 fundraiser to send the Jamaican Bobsled Team to the 2014 Winter Olympics after the athletes qualified but did not have the financial backing to attend.

Here are the full results from this week’s survey:

  • Yes, Dogecoin will reach $1 by 2022: 80.2%

  • No, Dogecoin will not reach $1 by 2022: 19.8%

As our team has covered throughout 2021, some of the major swings in the cryptocurrency have been fueled by Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk, who has posted about Dogecoin and shared memes of the cryptocurrency with the Shibu Inu dog.

The “meme currency” has trended on Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) throughout 2021, with #dogecoin and #dogetothemoon among trending topics.

This sentiment study was conducted as Dogecoin hit an all-time high of $0.45 Friday amid a frenzied week of trading which saw the meme cryptocurrency run higher by 650%.

As of publication time, Dogecoin is trading around $0.25.
