Dogecoin- Analyze Meme Cryptocurrency Data Using Python

This article was published as a part of the Data Science Blogathon

Introduction

Kindly do your exploration a long time prior to putting cash in any cryptocurrency money. 

As of late Dogecoin is springing up wherever in the news. So I needed to think about this recently popular digital currency and how it is distinctive structure the other cryptographic money like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and so on.

To see more about the distinction and the justification of the unexpected blast in dogecoin I did some examination on dogecoin and the other cryptographic money.

While investigating dogecoin I discovered that it is a meme coin, and it is unstable and was distraught out of senselessness. While bitcoin and Ethereum are two altogether different cryptocurrency money however are made for an explanation and are quite gotten than dogecoin.

Actually like there must be 21 million bitcoins ever. Dogecoin adds 10000 doges at any point single moment of each day there is no restriction no shortage. If there is no shortage the cost will drop as individuals quit purchasing there are a lot more factors at the cost to drop and increment however I won’t go around there. While exploring dogecoin I discovered actually like dogecoin there are a lot more meme coins. 

 I’m not advancing any digital money in this post nor I’m elevating you’ll to put resources into any digital money. This post is to make individuals mindful of such cryptographic money.

We are going to analyze cryptocurrencies in great detail using python and its libraries

Import libraries

In this section, we will import all the required libraries that are necessary for our further analysis. We will go to see pandas, NumPy, matplotlib, seaborn and plotly. Check the below code for fore information on how to import required libraries

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import seaborn as sns
sns.set_style('whitegrid')
plt.style.use("fivethirtyeight")
%matplotlib inline
import matplotlib
from matplotlib.colors import LinearSegmentedColormap
# For reading stock data from yahoo
from pandas_datareader.data import DataReader
# For time stamps
from datetime import datetime
import warnings
warnings.filterwarnings("ignore")

Data Importing

In this section, we are going to import the dataset for further analysis. We will be using the pandas _csv() function to read the CSV file. The data is stored in the Pandas data frame. We will be reading datasets separately for different cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Dogecoin, etc.

Bitcoin Data

We are reading the BitCoin Data by using the pandas _csv() function to read the CSV file. Setting the parse_dates as Date and index_col as Date. After reading the data, use that Pandas tail() function to get the last 5 rows of the dataset.

btc=pd.read_csv('meme-cryptocurrency-historical-data/Bitcoin.csv',parse_dates=['Date'],index_col='Date', date_parser=dateparse)
btc = btc.iloc[::-1]
btc.tail(5)

The below table shows the output of the above command. The table consists of different columns like Open, High, Low, Close, Volume, and Market Cap. All these values are shown for time which means Date.

DogeCoin Data

We are reading the DogeCoin Data by using the pandas _csv() function to read the CSV file. Setting the parese_dates as Date and insex_col as Date. After reading the data, use that Pandas tail() function to get the last 5 rows of the dataset.

doge=pd.read_csv('meme-cryptocurrency-historical-data/Meme Coin/Dogecoin.csv',parse_dates=['Date'],index_col='Date', date_parser=dateparse)
doge = doge.iloc[::-1]
doge.tail(5)

The below table shows the output of the above command. The table consists of different columns like Open, High, Low, Close, Volume, and Market Cap. All these values are shown for time which means Date.

Dogecoin dataset

To get the highest value of BitCoin in the dataset, use the below command. The highest value comes out to be 0.684777 on 2021-05-07.

maxValue=doge[doge['Close']==max(doge.Close)]
print("Highiest value of Dogecoin")
maxValue

Dogecoin highest value

Bitconnect Data

We are reading the Bitconnect Data by using the pandas _csv() function to read the CSV file. Setting the parese_dates as Date and insex_col as Date. After reading the data, use that Pandas tail() function to get the last 5 rows of the dataset.

bit=pd.read_csv('meme-cryptocurrency-historical-data/Dead Coin/bitconnect.csv',parse_dates=['Date'],index_col='Date', date_parser=dateparse)
bit=bit.iloc[:,1:7]
bit = bit.iloc[::-1]
bit=bit.iloc[:1580]
bit18=bit[:609]
bit.tail(5)

The below table shows the output of the above command. The table consists of different columns like Open, High, Low, Close, Volume, and Market Cap. All these values are shown for time which means Date.

print("Highiest value of Ethereum")
maxValue

highest value ethereum

Data Visualization

In this section, we are going to draw some important visuals using matplotlib, seaborn, and plotly to get some useful insights from the data. We will compare how the different cryptocurrency prices vary year to year, Volume comparison, the percentage change in price, and many more. So let’s get started without any further delay.

Cryptocurrency prices in 2018 vs 2020

In this part, we will draw the line plots using the seaborn library to compare closing prices of different cryptocurrencies in 2018 vs 2020.

We are going to draw line plots for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and BitConnect and compare their value in 2018 vs 2020. For line plots, we need to pass data, x-axis value, and y-axis value. Check the below code for more information on how to draw line plots for closing prices year to year.

ef to2018(df):
df18=equalize(df,bit)
    return df18.iloc[:len(bit18)]
def equalize(df,dfs):
low=len(dfs)
high=len(df)
dff=high-low
    return df.iloc[dff:]
btc18=to2018(btc)
eth18=to2018(eth)
crypto=["Bitcoin 2018","Bitcoin","Ethereum 2018","Ethereum","Bitconnect 2018","Dogecoin"]
cryptoDf=[btc18,btc,eth18,eth,bit18,doge]
num_plots = 6
total_cols = 2
total_rows = 3
fig, axs = plt.subplots(nrows=total_rows, ncols=total_cols,
                        figsize=(14*total_cols, 7*total_rows), constrained_layout=True)
for i, var in enumerate(crypto):
row = i//total_cols
pos = i % total_cols
sns.set_context('paper', font_scale = 2)
plot =  sns.lineplot(data=cryptoDf[i], x="Date", y="Close",color='#732C2C',palette ='coolwarm',ax=axs
[pos]) axs
[pos].set_title(crypto[i])

cryptocurrency prices 2018 vs 2020 | Dogecoin

 

Observation
  • We can see a clear spike in all the cryptocurrency in 2018
  • After 2018, prices started falling
  • The nature of spikes is the same in all the cryptocurrency
  • Bitconnect fell definitely and stopped to present after that.
  • Though Bitcoin and Ethereum both endure the effect is as yet on the lookout

Cryptocurrency Volume in 2018 vs 2020

In this part, we will draw the line plots using the seaborn library to compare the Volume of different cryptocurrencies in 2018 vs 2020. Volume is the number of coins that are traded during the trading period(bought or sold).

We are going to draw line plots for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and BitConnect and compare their volume in 2018 vs 2020. For line plots, we need to pass data, x-axis value, and y-axis value. Check the below code for more information on how to draw line plots for volume year to year.

fig, axs = plt.subplots(nrows=total_rows, ncols=total_cols,
                        figsize=(14*total_cols, 7*total_rows), constrained_layout=True)
for i, var in enumerate(crypto):
row = i//total_cols
pos = i % total_cols
sns.set_context('paper', font_scale = 2)
plot =  sns.lineplot(data=cryptoDf[i], x="Date", y="Volume",color='#732C2C',palette ='coolwarm',ax=axs
[pos]) axs
[pos].set_title(crypto[i])
cryptocurrency volume 2018 vs 2020
Observation
  • The price of Bitconneect depends on the volume of coins.
  • In the Bitconnect line plot, each spike in volume shows the hike in price
  • Also, the plunged when there was an enormous spike in volume of bitconnect we can say that as cost began dunking in the crypto Market individuals began selling increasingly more which caused an immense spike in volume and as Bitconnect was so reliant upon volume it smashed.
  • Bitcoin and Ethereum had the option to support this dunk in cost since they are additionally subject to different elements seen above in the principle segment.

Returns: Percentage Change In Price

In this part, we will draw the line plots using the seaborn library to compare the return of different cryptocurrencies in 2018 vs 2020. Return in cryptocurrency is the percentage change in price. We are going to draw line plots for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and BitConnect and compare their volume in 2018 vs 2020. For line plots, we need to pass data, x-axis value, and y-axis value. Check the below code for more information on how to draw line plots for return year to year.
df in cryptoDf:
df['Daily Return'] = df['Close'].pct_change()
fig, axs = plt.subplots(nrows=total_rows, ncols=total_cols,
                        figsize=(14*total_cols, 7*total_rows), constrained_layout=True)
for i, var in enumerate(crypto):
row = i//total_cols
pos = i % total_cols
cryptoDf[i]['Daily Return'].plot(ax=axs
[pos], legend=True,color='#732C2C', linestyle='--', marker='.') axs
[pos].set_title(crypto[i])

percentage change in prices
fig, axs = plt.subplots(nrows=total_rows, ncols=total_cols,
                        figsize=(8*total_cols, 5*total_rows))
for i, var in enumerate(crypto):
row = i//total_cols
pos = i % total_cols
plot =sns.distplot(cryptoDf[i]['Daily Return'], bins=100, color='#732C2C',ax=axs
[pos]) axs
[pos].set_title(crypto[i]) plt.ylabel('Daily Return') plt.tight_layout()

daily return | Dogecoin
Observation
  • Return changes drastically over time
  • The movement of return is more in 2018 as compared to 2020

High-Low Values

In this section, we are going to draw high and low values in a single chart for different cryptocurrencies using Plotly. Check the below code for more information.

Observation
  • Prices were highest in Dec 2017 at a value of $20.23
  • Prices are continuously dropping, $1.89 on April 2021

Conclusion

We can finish up the responses to the most acclaimed question. Is Dogecoin another Bitcoin? or on the other hand, Dogecoin will supplant Bitcoin ever? Ans is no from the diagrams we can unmistakably see that Ethereum and Bitcoin are a considerable amount more secure than Dogecoin and Bitconnect.

Which is the reason they are enduring the fall in 2018 and will get by through the current dunk in cost as well. The fall of dogecoin is inescapable. Although Dogecoin isn't a scam. However, the social design of dogecoin burrows a grave for itself. Put away your cash astutely after doing your own examination.
