Dogecoin. My first Cryptocurrency Experience.
My first Cryptocurrency Experience.
When you hear cryptocurrency, do you think of Bitcoin and Bitcoin only? As did I. I knew zero to nothing about cryptocurrency or Bitcoin.

According to Google and Wikipedia, as of August 19, 2018 there are over 1600 cryptocurrencies. That’s a year old statistic.
Dogecoin is one of those 1600 cryptocurrency. Dogecoin was released on December 6, 2013 (as a joke). But alas, the internet caught on to Dogecoin rather quickly. Dogecoin reached $60 million in capital in January 2014. That is $60 million in 1 month. (insert mind blowing emoji here).
According to dogecoin.com, “Dogecoin is a open source peer-to-peer digital currency”. You can transfer Dogecoin like money online. You can purchase items and exchange Dogecoins with others.
Recently, I bought $10.00 worth of Dogecoin which turned out to be 3,063 Dogecoins. My purchase price per Dogecoin was $0.003265. I dipped my toe in the cryptocurrency pool. Currently, at the time of writing this (not of posting as the price per Dogecoin changes so frequently) the price of 1 Dogecoin is $0.002866. I’m currently negative -$1.22.
What I learned with my tiny purchase of cryptocurrency…
- The Cryptocurrency world is volitale AF
- Dogecoin has been the most inexpensive cryptocurrency I’ve found
- Cyptocurrency can be traded on Robinhood App
- Cryptocurrency is irreversible. Once it’s sent it’s sent.
- Crypto is not controlled by any government.
- Cryptocurrencies can be traded 24/7. They don’t have an open/close market as does the stock market.
- Cryptocurreny on Robinhood is back by cash which means it cannot be used a collateral for equities positions, according to the Robinhood website.
