I think it says a lot about the state of the cryptocurrency space in general that a currency with a dog on it, which hasn't released a software update in over 2 years, has a $1B+ market cap.

DOGE is an investment in the playful spirit that nourished the early developers and adopters of cryptocurrerncy. Sadly, that smiling spirit has been largely replaced by seriousness, anger and dry self-interest.
