Dogecoin (DOGE), has surpassed the market capitalization of Zcash (ZEC), one of the top privacy coins. Over the past 24 hours, DOGE has surged more than 13%, adding close to $80 million to its market cap.

The news was confirmed via Dogecoin’s Twitter with the experiment’s results available on YouTube:

DOGE is now ranked 20th on CoinMarketCap and is roughly $90 million away from Tezos in the 19th spot.
