Even though Dogecoin was launched back in 2013, it is yet to be listed in major exchanges like Coinbase, Binance, and Bitfinex.
After Elon Musk showed his light-hearted support for Dogecoin, it pumped more than 30% during the recent run-up. It is currently the 23rd most valued Cryptocurrency on Coinmarketcap with a market cap of $424 Million. At the time of writing, DOGE is priced at $0.0035 (71 satoshis) down 10% in the past day.
