I can confidently say I’ve been here since the beginning and wanted to let you all know that what we’ve all seen today on the markets is nothing new. I’ve actually seen this happen before… several times. I’ve seen people reusing memes from 2014 even today.
I’ve seen it happen in mid-2014, mid 2015, early 2016, mid 2017, early 2018, late 2018, mid 2019, early 2021 and now. I’d make a bet that I will see it happen again and again too. If you are new here this could be interesting news. If you are a veteran, you will already know this.
Is Doge dead? The simple answer is… Impossible. Because of the nature of decentralized currency, it’s near on impossible to kill a coin so long as people are using it. It’s somewhat similar to a torrent. Doge has been here since 2013 and it will remain.
This is all my opinion but I believe it’s a reasonable stance based on the evidence of history. Take from it what you like. I am not a financial adviser. I’m simply an enthusiast who has been here for a very long time and want to share my thoughts.
**Day traders:** you must be stressed. It’s understandable. You can’t win every day and it happens from time to time. Coins are going to bounce back. Some will very quickly, some might take the next few days, some might take weeks and some might take longer.
**Holders:** You will be fine. History has shown that over the long term crypto has grown and there is still plenty of room to grow. You will ride over the bumps and likely continue uphill.

**Everyone:** You need to keep your coins safe. Don’t leave them on an old phone. Don’t leave them in a sketchy exchange. Don’t be that person who comes back later on and askes everyone how they can get their coins out of the [Mt. Gox](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mt._Gox) exchange.
**Trolls:** This is your time to shine but if you insist on telling people you will eat your hat in the middle of time square if crypto ever recovers be aware our screenshots will never be lost and we will bring them back up in the future to laugh and create wonderful content for this subreddit.
