My Best Friend, the Super Bowl, and Doge

By Cje95 | Chronic Illness and Crypto | 16 Apr 2021

This year I spent Super Bowl weekend at my friend's place in Virginia. He is currently stationed at Quantico, Virginia so the friends he had over were all Marine buddies. My friend who had only just started investing in stocks uses the same platform I use, Robinhood. During that weekend he after many many glasses of wine talked me into buying Doge the first and only crypto he had invested in at that point. 


Now he only invested $10 in it and bought 400 and something Doge..... He talked me into spending $45 or buying 579 Doge. It was one of those purchases that in the morning I looked at and went "that was the dumbest thing in the world to do" and figured I would just write it off. Even though it was Elon's favorite crypto and had celebrity support it was a meme coin after all!


Now I have continued to watch it and I would be up a little or down a little but nothing too crazy. Oh boy has that changed the last two days..... Right before writing this, he had actually called me to tell me I owed him one with it hitting $0.27 a coin. As a joke when we talked last night, I put a sell order in for 79 of my Doge at $0.25 and while we were on the phone it took it. 


My friend is up a whopping 900% and is having a grand old time with his Doge now worth over $100! Absolutely crazy if you ask me and when it was talked about at work today I made the joke of how this is showing the stimmy checks have hit people's bank accounts. With the relative ease of mining this crypto, I wonder if more miners are going to move into mining this coin over others. This is the first crypto I have owned that has had these types of gains that I did not sell out too early. 


The little bit I have sold was to cover a possible cratering of it back to $0.07 or $0.08 a coin. Absolutely crazy but for those who own any congrats!
