    Dogecoin price: Is Dogecoin here to stay? Experts weigh in on crypto’s future | City & Business | Finance

    At points this year, Dogecoin has hit heights above £0.50 GBP ($0.70 USD). However, like all cryptocurrencies, Dogecoin has proven time and again the market is volatile and subject to change in an instant. As well as stark highs, it’s also plunged on several occasions this year.

    In USD, the price of Dogecoin was trending at around $0.19 to $0.20 earlier in August.

    But according to CoinDesk data, the price of DOGE began to pick up around Saturday, August 7.

    Over the last seven days, Dogecoin reached its peak price on Sunday, August 8, with $0.272700.

    As of Tuesday, August 10, Dogecoin was priced at £0.183345 ($0.254130), according to CoinDesk data.

    Over the last 24 hours, it’s dropped in price by -2.80 percent.

    As of August 10, Dogecoin also had a market cap of £23.95 billion ($33.20 billion).

    The price of all cryptocurrencies, including Dogecoin, can change without warning, making it impossible to pinpoint prices for Dogecoin in the long term.

    But Express.co.uk spoke to cryptocurrency experts to see what could lie in store for the cryptocurrency in the future.

    Michael Stroev, the COO of Nebeus, told Express.co.uk: “I don’t see DOGE as heralding a shift in the cryptocurrency world or becoming a long-term and leading cryptocurrency.

    “Dogecoin is seen as a coin that has no real-world value other than speculation.

    “It should be treated as a high-risk crypto option, and people should not invest in DOGE without first understanding that its value is precariously balanced.”

    Dr Pooja Lekhi, Lecturer at University Canada West, told Express.co.uk: “[Dogecoin] is still retaining its value and is stable at around $0.20, despite China’s push to ban cryptocurrency mining.

    “It has some advantages over bitcoin. Unlike bitcoin, which is designed to be limited in its supply, Dogecoin is abundant with 10,000 new coins mined every minute and no maximum supply.

    “And it is gradually gaining wider acceptance. Dogecoin, which started as a joke, has had a phenomenal wild ride so far this year.

    “It is no longer a joke and could be one of the leading cryptos in upcoming years.”
