    Not as big as it was back then because of high use in the black market and tons of bitcoin heists.

    I used it at one point but stopped because most retailers stopped accepting it due to a ton of bitcoin fraud. I guess the market finally recovered.

    Lite coin was gaining popularly but Dogecoin was dying by the time I left the community. There was a HUGE hack and tons got their coins stolen from what I heard. Never went back

    No but I have read up on it and plan on investing in it once I get money (i.e. more than 100 or so to invest).

    Most likely it is just like those sites that give free money for surveys.

    Yeah a lot of people use it as a long term investment.

    I use it to pay people for work. Saves on fees from bank transfers and whatnot.
