DOGE has a difference from Bitcoin. Until now people still believe that DOGE is not as good as Bitcoin. There are some differences between the two.
One of them is DOGE has an unlimited supply. In addition, DOGE is a payment tool for several internet platforms such as Reddit and others.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin, which occupies the ‘King of Crypto Assets,’ has a limited supply. The maximum Bitcoin circulation is only 21 million BTC.
Another difference is that Bitcoin functions more as an investment asset because of its character as a valuable asset. In comparison, DOGE is more likely to be a speculative asset.
