Dogecoin (DOGE) 420 was trending on social media after the meme token rallied past $0.42. The momentum came from a sentiment seeking to create 'DogeDay 420' – marked every April 20 - as a celebration of the top meme cryptocurrency.
Coincidentally, Doge 4/20 is the international Weed day and a favorite day for Elon Musk, one of the Dogecoin enthusiasts. The calendar date began on April 20, 1971, when a group of friends in California used the term 420 or 4.20 pm to meet and smoke cannabis. Musk has pumped Dogecoin in the past with phrases like ‘Dogecoin is the people’s crypto’ and ‘No highs, no lows, only Doge.’

One Twitter user, @itsALLrisky, observed that Dogecoin is growing into a ‘cultural phenomenon.’ He added that more brands were accepting the token in payments, also getting growing media attention.
Dogecoin 4/20: Dogecoin Up 85% In The Past Month
Cryptocurrency data platform, CoinMarketCap, shows Dogecoin ranks #8 with a market valuation of $15 billion. The run-up to the DogeDay 4/20 has spiked the price of the meme cryptocurrency. DOGE, started as a joke in 2013, jump 85% in the last month from a low of $0.062, and 60% in the last three months.
Still, other analysts believe the 420 hype aims to drive up the price of Dogecoin. Hargreaves Lansdown’s senior investor, Susannah Streeter, said that the trend aims to use ‘hashtags and cries on the internet forums’ to pump DOGE.
Streeter is skeptical that the hype is from traders trying to play the system and benefit from a surge in price. She cautioned the market that the sentiment is purely speculative and has no valuation basis. Meanwhile, cryptocurrencies are on a retracement, with BTC and ETH trading at their lowest yearly values, at the time of publication.
