How to Buy Dogecoin


What is Dogecoin (DOGE)?

Dogecoin is an altcoin, often considered as a meme cryptocurrency. It is based on the popular “Doge” meme, with the Shiba Inu dog as its mascot. Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer founded Dogecoin as a satirical take on the crypto markets. They wanted Dogecoin to be easily accessible to the public while also acting as a medium to reward content creators while also helping build greater community engagement.

Despite the satirical take, Dogecoin has become one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in the world. It is one of the top 10 cryptos in the world by market cap. Unlike other cryptos like Bitcoin, Dogecoin does not have a hard upper cap on its total supply.

What can you do with Dogecoin?

Payment and Transactions

The primary use of DOGE is to be used as a payment token and for financial transactions. Dogecoin could be better suited in doing this than BTC since the latter is primarily used as a store-of-value. DOGE’s low price and fast throughput make it ideal for small transactions.


Many people buy Dogecoin for profit expectations and benefit from long-term gains. If you do have a "buy-and-hold" strategy, then we recommend transferring your coins to a cold hardware wallet like Ledger Nano. Having said that, CoinSmart has taken several security measures to ensure user fund protection. These include – mandatory 2FA, withdrawal confirmation emails, cold storage & BitGo user funds insurance.

Tipping Creators

DOGE is a prevalent mode for tipping creators, with the Dogecoin community having a significant presence on social media sites like Reddit.

Entry Point to Crypto

Dogecoin can be a gateway for new investors looking to add cryptocurrencies to their investment portfolio. Lots of users get into DOGE due to endorsements from celebrities like Elon Musk before transitioning to other cryptocurrencies.

Become a Part of the Community

Dog meme tokens like dogecoin have one of the most active, interesting, and healthy online global communities in the world. The Dogecoin community is known for its philanthropic efforts, having raised $55,000 to send the Jamaican Bobsled team to Sochi for the Winter Olympics. Plus, the community came together to support Ukrainian athletes with a generous donation, which allowed them to attend the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Buy Dogecoin and Send to Friends

Dogecoin can be sent to anyone in the world so long as they have an Internet-enabled device. In addition, the transaction fee is very low when transferring money, which makes it highly preferable for people who use digital currencies. Bitcoin may be the most popular choice when it comes to cryptocurrency, but Dogecoin can also give Bitcoin a run for its money in terms of overall value.
