Dogecoin trading volume trumps all other digital currencies

Digital currencies are often hit or miss, with Bitcoin being king among them and other lesser known digital currencies languishing in the pool of at-least-I'm-worth-something. Then there's Dogecoin.

There's a credit card device by the name of Coin appearing this month with full intention of a full release inside 2014, and this week we've had a brief chat with the founder and CEO of the company to pose a few queries regarding real-world use.
