A case study against Doge – or any meme coin This article pops up in a very appropriate time when DOGE starts rallying again due to the side effect of Elon Musk buying Twitter. I have never been a fan of meme coins, and I don’t think I will ever be, even though they have experienced crazy pumps that are rare even in theContinue reading “A case study against Doge – or any meme coin”
