  • The panel predicted Dogecoin’s price to double to US$0.32 by 2025 and US$0.54 by 2030 — down from last year’s prediction of US$0.57 by 2025 and US$0.92 by 2030.
  • Dogecoin, regarded as the original memecoin, is the 13th largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of US$15.5 billion and was trading at US$0.116 at press time. 
  • In December 2021, the Dogecoin Foundation released a roadmap aimed at boosting Dogecoin’s utility, as well as collaborating with Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin to shift the system to a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism. 
  • But 53.6% of Finder’s panel don’t think the memecoin can be rebranded as a utility coin and only 17.9% believe Dogecoin can successfully do it.
