ELI5 Litecoin and Dogecoin Why were they released some time after Bitcoin
Litecoin and Dogecoin were once the #2 and #3 cryptocurrencies by market cap, respectively. In early 2014, when Dogecoin had just been released, the meme fever pumped the cryptocurrency to hundreds of millions of U$ valuation almost overnight. Both LTC and DOGE share more than one thing in common: both of them were forked off of the main Bitcoin source code tree and both use a different cryptographic hashing function than Bitcoin does. The Scrypt key derivation function is used in both these cryptocur...

Dogecoin Cryptocurrency in a Nutshell
Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency that started more or less as a joke in 2013. It quickly gained popularity in social networks, especially among younger cryptocurrency users. Today it ranks among the top 100 cryptocurrencies and still enjoys decent trading volume in the most popular exchanges. Mineable? If so how is it mined? Dogecoin is mineable  and uses the scrypt encryption algorithm. Mining Dogecoin can be performed via GPU but faster ASICs exist for scrypt. Maximum circulating coins Dogec...

Dogecoin Has Been Processing More Than Three Times The Transactions of BCH | CryptoGlobe
Dogecoin (DOGE), the dog-themed cryptocurrency whose founder claims he created it as a joke, has recently processed transactions outnumbering those of bitcoin cash (BCH) by more than three-to-one. According to data from bitinfocharts, the number of DOGE transactions has for the last three months nearly always exceeded BCH - with the ratio peaking on June the 18th with 42,727 DOGE transactions to BCH's 13,355. Advocates of bitcoin cash (BCH) - a hard-fork of bitcoin (BTC) - present the coin as the more usable, real-world application of bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakomoto's vision. Due it its larger blocksize and lower transaction fees, BCH fans are keen to contrast the cryptocurrency with bitcoin - viewing the latter more as a store of value than as a usable currency.

Is Dogecoin Making A Comeback
In every market slaughter, there are some winners. Those with sell orders over 50 satoshi on Dogecoin may have noticed their sales went through recently. Demand for Dogecoin has seemingly picked up whilst the rest of the market was on a sell frenzy. The Dogecoin price went up about 6 Satoshi in the last 48 hours, with more than $11 million in total trade volume, a gain of more than 10%. Dogecoin is an oft-forgotten coin, although it is accepted by several major providers and is traded on every respectable altcoin exchange. The coin was born of the meme culture of the early 2010s and its only primary differences to Bitcoin are that it is inflationary in nature it will never stop producing new tokens and it uses Scrypt, the same hashing algorithm as Litecoin.

How to Buy Dogecoin in 3 Simple Steps: A Beginner's Guide
Initially introduced as a joke cryptocurrency, Dogecoin (DOGE) now has a large online following and a market cap of almost $500 million at the time of writing. It is also well known for its meme-inspired logo of a Shiba Inu dog. Dogecoin was created in December 2013 by Billy Markus, a programmer from Portland, Oregon. Like Bitcoin, Dogecoin has a blockchain that's maintained by a mining system. However, the key difference is that Dogecoin uses a Scrypt algorithm. This is to help avoid the use of ASIC mining hardware and the issues of mining centralization as seen with Bitcoin. The intention was for there to be a limit of 100 billion Dogecoins. However, it was later decided that there would be a limitless supply of Dogecoins.

US Exchange CoinMKT Launches API, Adds USD/Dogecoin Trading
Los Angeles-based digital currency exchange CoinMKT has launched an API to provide advanced access to its platform. The company offers trading between 10 different digital currencies and USD and that now also includes dogecoin. Travis Skweres, the CEO of CoinMKT, told CoinDesk that the API is a step towards getting professional traders and hedge funds using the exchange. There's a huge need for institutional trading. Our long-term strategy is companies and institutional traders. Skweres said that up to this point CoinMKT had been mostly a retail operation focused on individual customers. Now, the exchange's API brings new functions to the platform such as programming trade engines.

How to buy Dogecoin with Paypal or Credit Card Instantly
Although it was only released  in the beginning of December 2013, in the first month of 2014 Dogecoin has more than tripled it's value. Obviously this has created a strong demand for purchasing Dogecoin. You will need a Dogecoin wallet to store you Dogecoins. Go to Dogecoin's official website and download the appropriate Dogecoin wallet. Note that there aren't any reputable USD/DOGE exchanges, which is why I would advise against buying Dogecoin directly with fiat (USD, EUR etc.). Also, there are very little reputable exchanges that allow you to buy Dogeicoin (DOGE) with Bitcoins or Litecoins. This of course means you will have to obtain Bitcoins or Litecoins somehow, but have no fear, the tutorials are here!
