NEW DELHI: Meme-based virtual currency Dogecoin has recently emerged as one of the favourites on social media following the tweets of Tesla and SpaceX chief executive Elon Musk. Launched in 2013, Dogecoin was created by software engineers Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer.
Musk recently shared a faux 'Doge' Magazine cover, and the prices of the meme currency witnessed a surge. He had earlier tweeted that, "Dogecoin is the people's crypto", that sent the cryptocurrency's value higher by 75 per cent.

Here's how you can buy Dogecoin:
* Potential buyers of Dogecoin in India are required to set up their account on crypto exchanges that support Dogecoin.
* Cryptocurrency exchange platforms provide the most convenient ways to buy Dogecoin.
* Users should have a few applications that they can use for buying Dogecoins like WazirX, BuyUcoin, and CoinSwitch.
* In India, you can buy Dogecoin through credit or debit card, or other e-wallets
* To mine Dogecoin, one should have Windows, Mac, or Linux on their PC.
* For those who want to buy Dogecoin in small quantities, faucets — websites that dole out free cryptocurrency to visitors — can be a good option.
* On these websites, one can earn Dogecoins every 3 hours (or so) just by clicking a button and completing a captcha code.
* If you are an advanced user and have a powerful computer setup, you can process other Dogecoin transactions and get these coins as payments.
