Dogecoin Surprisingly Plays An Important Role On Robinhood’s Existence

Grayscale CEO Barry Silbert Says Dogecoin Is Dramatically Overvalued

The recent shilling of Dogecoin was not in vain for the Robinhood cryptocurrency trading app. It generated 34% of the app’s cryptocurrency transaction revenues during the first quarter of this year. This is compared to only 4% of the income generated from Dogecoin transactions during the fourth quarter of 2021.

Dogecoin has been experiencing a surge in price since April reaching a peak price of $0.71 in May. The recent surge involved Elon Musk’s support for the cryptocurrency saying he would send an actual Dogecoin in space.
