One of these coins with an unbelievable growth was Dogecoin; A crypto with nothing in behind and only supported by the millionaire Elon Musk. But Does it really have a bright future?

What is behind Dogecoin?

Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer, the founders of Dogecoin, came up with the idea of this meme coin when they agreed that cryptos’ efficiency has been exaggerated and can not be as fascinating as the Bitcoin lovers are claiming. So they brought Dogecoin to the game to humiliate the whole market in 2013.

But the first 2 weeks were surprising for them. Not only was the 300% growth shocking to them, but also the number of transactions in Dogecoin network was much more than Bitcoin’s!

Dogecoin at first was popular among Reddit and Twitter members for rewarding per activities. While the founders wanted Dogecoin to mortify Bitcoin, it changed its path to benevolent affairs. Right now Dogecoin foundation is working with famous youtubers Mr.Beast and Mark Robber to donate for cleaning the coast from 30 pounds of garbage. But generally Dogecoin is accepted as a payment method like Bitcoin.

Bitcoin and Dogecoin Network Differences

Dogecoin was established at first by Billy Markus by using a code of “Luckycoin” which was a Litecoin Fork while Litecoin itself is a Bitcoin Fork. It means that all of these 3 coins use the same consensus mechanism which is Proof of Work. But the main difference is in the technologies they use.

Bitcoin uses SHA-256 as hash function while Dogecoin uses Scrypt that uses less energy. The other benefit (which further became a disadvantage) is the unlimited amount of Dogecoin which makes the mining process easier for the miners. This unlimited Dogecoin supply amount makes this coin fluctuating which can not be a good coin used as a payment method. On the other hand, it rewards the miners millions of Doge daily which makes the price growth hard to occur.
