According to Yahoo Finance, it means that a $1000 (£719.39) investment placed on the cryptocurrency at the start of 2021, when its value was around half of a penny, would now be worth more than $100,000 (£71,939.50) Yahoo’s Zack Guzman highlighted the rise in a tweet.
He posted: “If you invested $1000 into the following on January 1, 2021, you’d have this much as of May 4: – Tesla: $907 – GameStop: $8,990 – Bitcoin $1,946 – Dogecoin: $103,703!!!”
In a report, Mr Guzman added how after the $0.56 (£0.40) price that Dogecoin appeared to stabilise around on Tuesday, the bet would now be worth $103,703 (£74,603.42).
He cited that the US Census Bureau reported the average American household income is at $69,000 (£49,638.25).
It means the $1000 (£719.39) bet at the start of 2021 on Dogecoin could have created by about 1.5-times the average US household income in just five months, according to Mr Guzman.
