Dogecoin — which was originally created as a joke — came close to surpassing Cardano (ADA) and XRP by market capitalization. It was valued at more than $10 billion at its peak.  

The momentum of the meme coin was bolstered by another shout-out from Tesla CEO Elon Musk who tweeted a magazine cover with the “Vogue” title.
