This popularity was mostly because of Elon Musk tweets.
In February, Musk continued to speak out about Dogecoin on Twitter, after a series of tweets, the Dogecoin price rose by almost 50%.
Later, the businessman said that he had bought some doge coins for his youngest son. Then he turned to large Dogecoin holders with a proposal to sell part of their assets in order to reduce centralization.
There were rumors that SEC will begin investigation on Elon Musk tweets and pumping Dogecoin but there was no official confirmation.
In March, Musk announced his intention to build a new city in Texas, which will become the base for flights to Mars and beyond, and users again asked him about Dogecoin.
