Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) opened the 2021 trading year at $0.0047 and closed the year at $0.1703, for a 3,601% return. The crypto was one of the hottest storylines in 2021, driven not only by of the crypto’s soaring price, increased utility and software update that decreased its fees, but also because of the massive amount of retail traders who have become captivated with the coin.
The rise in Dogecoin’s popularity can also be attributed to its increased presence in popular culture, partially propelled by Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk showing favor to the crypto over others.
Most notably, Musk appeared on “Saturday Night Live” on May 8, although the hype around Dogecoin prior to his performance far outweighed any promotion Musk gave to the crypto during the show, as he only mentioned Dogecoin briefly.
The Shiba Inu-themed crypto tanked over 30% on the day following Musk’s appearance.
Although Dogecoin was one of the most popular cryptos during 2021 (which looks set to continue into 2022) there were a number of other less widely popular cryptos that offered great gains over the course of last year.
A look at five other cryptocurrencies with strong performances in 2021:
