STATE OF DOGECOIN
I have collected as much data as I could possibly find and contacted as many major players in the Dogecoin community as I could. I hope you all find this synthesis of information informative and worthy of discussion.
Anything that was announced in the few days before this was posted may not be included here, due to me working on this for the last 2 weeks!
I wish I could have included EVERYTHING, but there is just too much to add that fits in one reddit post. I hope to do this again, maybe even as a quarterly report.
Please take all the information presented to you here and make your own conclusions about how important each piece of data is to YOUR view of Dogecoin. Price
1 Doge = 0.00029 USD
Price would have to increase ~750% to be back at peak value.
COMPARED TO LITECOIN
1 LTC = 7.60 USD
Price would have to increase ~650% to be back at peak value. Market Capitalization 7th of all digital currencies, ~$23 Million USD
Our market cap has been declining the last few months, most coin’s have.
I am excited to know what our year-to-year price change will be as that is a better measure of change than the last 30 days.
For the past few days I have been trying to find a graph of the TOTAL market cap of all coins together over time.
I have a theory that not a lot of money is being put into cryptocurrencies at the moment, and the coins that go up in value are taking away value from others. What do you think?
I want to know if this is true, or if I am crazy. If that is somewhat true, there is a limit to how many coins will make it big.
I'd love to just see the total ALTCOIN market cap over time as well. Hashrate/Halving
Hashrate = ~50GH/s
Oddly, this is about the same hashrate we had after the last halving! ASICs inbound…
I could not find what proportion of the SCRYPT hashrate we have over time, as that is the best measure of hashrate in relation to other coins. I do have this though.
Litecoin’s hashrate is about 10 times larger than ours now.
The current block reward (recent halving) will create 90 Million Dogecoins/day or 38.7BTC at current prices.
This means that if ALL mined Dogecoins are sold every day they would only make up 3.8-7.5% off all transaction volume per day, which is around 500-1000BTC/day.
When the price stays the same, we can assume 250-500BTC of Dogecoins are bought or sold in that day. Therefore miners do not make up a large portion of the selling anymore, and they haven't for a while.
Another BIG assumption you have to make is that 38.7BTC cannot move markets. From my personally observations, the Cryptsy DOGE/BTC market controls the price of Dogecoin. I have watched the Chinese markets (BTC100, BTC38, BTER) respond to changes in price after they happen on Cryptsy. ~38BTC can have a HUGE impact on price if buy/sell walls are not there to support it. We need more demand, but it is nice to have less pressure from miners anyways.
Liquidity is still much much higher with Litecoin though! Transactions per Day Dogecoin has more transactions per day Litecoin, and all other altcoins. Sent from addresses Dogecoin has more unique addresses sending coins per day than Litecoin, and all other altcoins. Average Transaction Value
Average Litecoin transaction value for today was $9,380 USD.
Average Dogecoin transaction value for today was $122 USD.
Average Bitcoin transaction value for today was $3,250 USD. http://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/transactionvalue-btc-ltc-doge.html
Dogecoin is potentially being used exactly as intended. Lots of people sending small amounts of money to each other or things.
I am stunned that the AVERAGE person sending Litecoins that day, sent almost $10K.
That is 3x higher than Bitcoin. In fact, oddly, Litecoin always has a higher average transaction value than Bitcoin since the Bitcoin bubble in late 2013. Anybody know why?
We usually DO NOT have higher transaction volumes than Litecoin, but we do consistently have ~500-1000BTC/day that is transacted, putting Dogecoin in the top 5 most traded coins. Dogecoin Address Growth
Dogecoin has also GAINED 14,653 positive addresses in the month of June, where Litecoin has LOST 33,875. (info from bitinfocharts and currency4world
) Wikipedia Statistics
Bitcoin traffic – Average ~9000 views in the last 90 days (highest 18614 views/day) – total views/90 days 819,193
Litecoin traffic – Average ~380 views in the last 90 days (highest 998 views/day) – total views/90 days 40,036
Dogecoin traffic – Average ~1200 views in the last 90 days (highest 8629 views/day) – total views/90 days 154,415 Circlejerking Statistics Bitcoin recently surpassed 1 Yottahash
, I believe we are up to almost 1 Yottajerk of circlejerking power. I am excited for a few years from now, when the QuantumJerk ASICs are released.
Every time I read someone calling /dogecoin
a circlejerk I laugh, not because they are wrong, but because they are just stating the obvious.
Do you think there is someone in the corner of the room at NASA who just comments about how all they talk about is rockets and space?
If dreaming big and congratulating ourselves on our achievements is a circlejerk, then I guess it’s human to circlejerk. Every subreddit is a circlejerk, the only difference in /dogecoin
is that you can get tips from circlejerking. (Is that prostitution?)
The main point of this section was to see how many times I could type circlejerk. Foundation The new Dogecoin Foundation is now a legal enitiy and will have a road map of working projects
Personally I would love to see someone from the Chinese Dogecoin community represented on the Foundation. They buy and sell a lot of Dogecoins
Maybe just a liason position or something.
At the very least, during fundraisers, the Chinese community should be contacted to see if they want to help out! Development
Dogecoin is the ONLY altcoin with over a $1 Million USD market cap with the Core/Wallet/qt based off of Bitcoin 0.9. Dogecoin Core will be kept up to date and features from the Bitcoin Core will be adopted quickly. The devs are doing great so far, especially against coins with full-time PAID developers! CrytoSaga
Unprecedented cryptocurrency modeling software will be written to test possible outcomes to changes in Dogecoin’s algorithm. Main candidates are PoS 2.0, Tendermint, and SIMD. To my knowledge, this has never been created before in all of cryptocurrency, and will definitely further highlight the abilities of Dogecoin’s development team. A payment protocol is also being worked on. Cryptiv
Dogetipbot Twitch tipping with dogetipbot will go live soon!
- Cryptiv is considering integrating tipping on Wordpress websites and would love to hear the community’s feedback on this next potential platform or if they have any other suggestions?
- We will be making some improvements to the site and to the tipping experience on Twitter, Twitch.tv and Youtube based on feedback received from our users and hope to implement and announce these improvements very soon!
- Trending page has been announced
You can sign up to be invited to the beta, here. After Twitch tipping goes live, there will be a huge announcement
I have followed what mohland
have said about it, here. Coingecko
Price might not be so encouraging at the moment, but stay faithful. Keep up the good work. Encourage more people to join. The community is something special. I have strong faith that it will be heading to the moon! Coinplay.io http://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/news/kansas-city-startup-incubator-partners-dogecoin-based-coinplay-io/2014/07/09 Suchlist

The biggest new Onarbor feature announcement is ability to back and re-back works and reviews. This was the top request so we're glad to finally implement it. Coming soon will be more tailored feeds where we will allow people to follow creators that interest them (will allow TwitteFB/linkedin auth to find friends/colleagues). What can Dogecoin do better? Marketing
For a coin that has done some of the best marketing out there, we suck at getting major announcements across on multiple platforms.
I am hoping /dogecoin_pr
will bring this up to par.
51.54% of Dogecoin users are on Dogecoin Core 1.6.( http://bitinfocharts.com/dogecoin/
Maybe merchants and such are not to keen on updating if it is not required, but maybe they just do not know about 1.7.
When 1.8 comes out, I would love to see a sticky thread on the subreddit, an announcement on the official Dogecoin Twitter and Facebook pages, an announcement on the front of the BitcoinTalk forum, as well as contacting cryptonews websites. Dogecoin has a large social media presence and should be taking advantage of THAT! Dogecoin.com
I know you powerlemons
is working on updating this, but the website is COMPLETELY MISSING a section on how to accept Dogecoin. This should be just as big as the other coloured sections!
ALSO This should be added to the “Get Dogecoin” section at the bottom of the page.
I have tried to keep it updated as much as possible, but would love the community to notify me of any changes
COMMENTS Josh Wise
“I have said this to a few people in the community but my two cents on this is to keep it fun, charitable, and stick to the fundamentals that made the community grow so much initially. My personal opinion (and I really have no clue what I am talking about) is that this community grew so fast because it was so much fun, anything seemed possible, everything seemed worth trying and there were not many negative undertones with anything. It seems like people are really getting wrapped up in a lot of negatives right now and that is never productive. The law of attraction will rule in the end and as long as people are positive- no matter the circumstance- the circumstance will become positive. I love this place and wish only the best for dogecoin and the community, and like I said, I have no clue as to all of the intricacies and the many moving parts past and present. Only my two cents on what I see (:
As far as upcoming projects- I am still working on some new shirts by popular demand. I would really love to either race the Dogecoin car in a few Superspeedway races next year, or try to raise money so that we can run the rear bumper all season. I am super thankful for all that has come of this and want to continue to help build the brand and awareness in any ways possible. A lot of that is really up to the community though and not me.” Co-founder (BillyM2K aka Shibetoshi Nakamoto)
“A community that is having fun, building cool things, and coming together for great causes and fun causes alike is exceptionally more valuable than one that is trying desperately to create value by finger pointing, complaining, witch hunting, attempting to market useless features, and ultimately eating itself.”
I have always used Bitbargain but thought I would look at a few UK exchanges. Clearly I have been spoilt by Bitbargain's non-paranoid stance on ID. submitted by
Before I comment on each exchange, let me set-out my philosophy.
If I go to a bureau de change with £200 and want to change it into euros, I don't expect my ID to be requested and copied. If I go to the bureau with £5,000 and wish to change it, then I might well expect to be asked for ID.
My impression is that the major UK exchanges now ask for ID for any amount of transactions. Want to buy £10 of Bitcoin - provide ID. And it's not just ID - it's government issued ID plus address.
If I give my ID to Barclays, I suspect they will store it securely and I suspect the bank is "too big to fail". I have no idea how an exchange run by three people will store my passport scan. Additionally, exchanges often collapse. Speedy Bitcoin, for example, no longer exists. What happens to all the IDs and address documentation that have been collected?
In alphabetical order:
Bitbargain - can optionally provide ID to get better deals; can also verify phone to get better deals. No mandatory ID requirement.
Bittylicious - email / phone verification - allowed me to buy around £70. According to their website, as the account ages, one can buy more. Provide ID and one can buy more. At £1,200 total purchases, ID must be provided. This is a better approach to mandatory ID requirements.
CoinCorner - does not require ID upfront but has an intrusive form where they ask your DOB, occupation, where your money comes from - can ask for ID at their discretion (I imagine they routinely do).
Coincut - photo ID (passport / driving license) + bank card selfie [!!!] - for any amount (obviously I am far from eager to take a photo of myself along with my bank card and send it to them).
Cryptopay - photo ID (passport) + proof of address - for any amount.
IBWT - fund via OKPAY or via cash sent by post. OKPAY - photo ID (passport / driving license) + proof of address if funding by bank transfer - for any amount.
LazyBitcoin - photo ID (passport / driving license) + proof of address - for any amount.
Local Bitcoins - varies. Some sellers demand IDs plus selfies; a few (not many) are more relaxed if you are depositing cash in their account.
Quick Bitcoin - photo ID (passport / driving license) - for any amount.
Opinions? Comments? I know some will say "this is the cost of doing business with AML / KYC requirements" but I would say "so why the variation in policies? Why are Bitbargain and Bittylicious more tolerant? Why do you need to provide ID and address verification to purchase £10 of Bitcoin? Isn't the ethos of Bitcoin that it is different to the banking cartels? Why are the exchanges behaving like the privacy-violating banks?"
