Dogecoin (DOGE) is expected to reach $0.163 a unit this year, according to a top product comparison site.
In a survey, some 33 analysts predicted the value of DOGE to reach $0.316 per unit by 2025.
By the end of 2022, DOGE is predicted to reach a price of $0.25, the analysts said.
According to Fred Schebesta, Finder’s CEO, investors can likely “sit tight knowing that although there will be more, others will come and go, DOGE will forever remain the original.”
Analysts feel meme-based assets, in general, will lose their appeal to investors in the future, notwithstanding a few Dogecoin supporters.

Dogecoin Working Mechanism Explained
The mining code for Dogecoin was initially taken from LuckyCoin, another cryptocurrency project.
For creating new blocks, miners in LuckyCoin — a fork of Litecoin, itself a fork of Bitcoin – were rewarded with a random number between 0 and thousands of free coins.
As the Dogecoin community evolved, Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus, two of Dogecoin’s co-creators, made the decision, in March 2014, to switch to a fixed block reward schedule.
It’s estimated that 5.2 billion Dogecoins are produced each year under the current timetable.

Since blocks on Dogecoin are generated far more quickly than on Bitcoin (one minute vs. 10 minutes), transactions on DOGE are much more rapid.
