Oakland Athletics crypto journey started in March when it first started selling full-season access to six-person suits for 1 BTC. The acceptance of Dogecoin by Oakland Athletics just goes to show the craziness surrounding Dogecoin.
According to CoinGecko, Dogecoin now has a market cap of more than $57 billion to $500 million higher than leading stablecoin Tether’s (USDT) $52 billion capitalizations.
Doge does not hold any intrinsic value, yet it has managed to surpass the market cap of mainstream gains such as Honda Motor Co. at $52.9 billion, Ford Motors at $46 billion, and Twitter at $43 billion.
Earlier Dogecoin founder Billy Markus sold all his Doge stash in 2015, that’s before the cryptocurrency made its presence felt for the equivalent to a used Honda Civic.
Recently Dogecoin prices have surged, further reinforcing the faith of mainstream firms to leverage the use of Doge to promote snacks and confectionery.
Doge coins seem to be on a roll with a nearly 663% rise in 30 days. In the past 24 hours, $11 million worth of Doge has changed hands pushing the prices up 8.7% ie. around $043.
