Investing $1,000 in Dogecoin at its intraday peak of $0.74 would have secured 1,351.35 DOGE for the investors.

DOGE traded 5.03% higher over 24 hours leading up to press time.

At the current price, the $1,000 investment made on the day Saturday Night Live featuring Musk aired would only be worth $290.54.

Doggone Returns: The $1,000 investment translated into a 70.94% loss for the investor, but it is worth keeping in mind that DOGE has returned 4,306.31% gains since the year began.

The meme cryptocurrency has a market cap of $27.70 billion, making it the seventh currency in terms of market capitalization, as per CoinMarketCap data.
