Dogecoin is a decentralized cryptocurrency based on the blockchain technology. Dogecoin is a fork of Luckycoin, which itself was a fork of Litecoin, which originally was a fork of Bitcoin. If this means nothing to you but you just want to buy Dogecoins, then don’t worry, there are a lot of technical way of saying that a cryptocoin has a history and a lot of research is connected to its development and future acceptance.

Where to Buy Dogecoins.

A crypto exchange is a place where you trade crypto. Some exchanges let’s you buy crypto from your FIAT currency, like dollars or euros . When you buy crypto coins you often trade that FIAT currency into crypto currencies. However there is something like hot wallets to dig into. Keep in mind, that exchanges can crash, get hacked and so on and so forth. Slowdown might occur as more trading activity and commercial integration of cryptocurrency is growing. Some excanges will approve you quicker than others. It is possible to buy through VCC Exchange, BKEX & Paribu too.

I trust the following exchanges and/or soft wallets:

How to buy

Before you begin, please notice that you are often required to submit a picture of ID.

ALREADY GOT A WALLET: Jump down to next section where I linke to exchanges that offers Dogecoins.

FIRST TIME BUYERS: If you have never bought crypto currency then you don’t have a “wallet” or an account to store them in. In this case you need to sign up to an exchange or wallet and buy crypto with bank transfer or VISA Creditcard. For beginners who want to buy Bitcoin I would prefer Coinbase (invitation) and for beginners who only want to buy Dogecoins I would prefer to use as you can buy the most popular cryptocurrencies (including Dogecoin) with you VISA Creditcard. also lets you apply for a crypto credit card. & Kraken: app is more easy than buying a pizza. You can buy Dogecoins with your holdings in crypto or through VISA.

Kraken allows exchange of Dogecoins for Euro.


Binance requires that: First fund your account with dollars, then trade to Tether and then trade to Dogecoins. It is a more difficult way of acquiring Dogecoins, but this exchange has been a favourite of mine.

Andrei Jikh – describing Dogecoin

Dogecoins Pros

  • Block time of 1 minute meaning it has a somewhat “fast” ability to confirm transactions.
  • Cheap to use because of little competition in the mempool as a result of few users.
  • Support amongst internet community

Dogecoins Cons

  • Deflationary currency due to no upper limit of coins to be mined with 10.000 Dogecoins per block being mined every minute. Meaning there is no cap on how many coins will eventually be available. Even without a demand, the supply will this increase making a devaluation happening. One could argue the same goes for Ethereum but that requires more research and understanding.

My thoughts

If investing in Dogecoin then invest for the pure love of internet culture and the possible statement of changing the order of power through crypto payment. It is a way to “stick it to the man”. The nature of this coin is that it is build on a MEME and as such it is a viral idea at best. The idea of replacing FIAT with another currency like this is either a joke or poetic. At this stage, I do not think Ð will be one of the main coins that will be used in everyday payment transactions. But I believe that we will see occasionally pump & dump if the coin somehow keeps representing the internet culture while having more viral rounds to go. At current time it surely has a great support throughout the different activists & fora and the goal of reaching $1 per Dogegoal is enticing but is the time of writing a 3,300% increase from the current price meaning it will have to battle Ethereum to reach that goal. None the less, I have great love for the Doge.
