'This ain't no game' as DOGE briefly flippens Nintendo and takes #4 spot from XRP



Clearly, Super Mario isn't the only one collecting coins.
The market capitalization of Dogecoin ( DOGE ), a meme-based cryptocurrency that started as a joke seven years ago, briefly passed that of major Japanese video game company Nintendo following a price rally. According to data from AssetDash, the market cap of DOGE  surged to $77.7 billion on Tuesday following a rally that took the price of the coin above $0.60 for the first time. This rally put the market cap of the project ahead of both cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase at $73.8 billion and Nintendo at $76.3 billion. Though the price of DOGE has since fallen to $0.53, its market cap is still above XRP’s , making it the fourth most valuable cryptocurrency,  according to CoinMarketCap. The rally follows the coin flippening Tether ( USDT ) on Monday after trading platform eToro announced it had integrated support for Dogecoin. On Tuesday, major crypto exchange Gemini followed suit, with co-founder Tyler Winklevoss calling DOGE “organic, irreverent, and fun.” At the time of publication, Dogecoin’s market capitalization is $66.7 billion, with a wide gap between that of Binance Coin ( BNB ) at $96 billion and major United States-based companies including General Motors and FedEx. Should the token reach a price of $0.61, it would reach parity with the Bulgarian lev.
