Dogecoin Now in ATM Machines
The price of Dogecoin increased about 15% this week after a virtual currency exchange added the popular cryptocurrency to Bitcoin ATM Machines (BTMs).
Details: Virtual currency exchange Bitcoin of America announced Wednesday that it was adding Dogecoin to BTM locations. Bitcoin of America, which added Ethereum to its BTMs in October 2021, has 1,800 locations across 31 states.
Numbers: Dogecoin jumped from over 11 cents on Tuesday to 12 cents on Wednesday and 13 cents by Thursday.
Background: Dogecoin, which is considered to be one of the most popular crypto coins, hit an all-time high last May. The price has since lost over 70% of its value largely due to headwinds in the crypto market. There are also some concerns that Dogecoin may not have much value beyond meme status.
Final Thoughts: While Dogecoin is still considered to be just a meme coin to some, it has grown to be one of the most popular cryptos in the past year.
