Get used to seeing, over the coming days, lots of Dogecoin news, breathlessly enthusiastic tweets, and maybe even some kind of reference to the cryptocurrency this weekend on Saturday Night Live, when Tesla CEO and die-hard Dogecoin fanboy-in-chief Elon Musk hosts NBC's weekend variety show. Many people are expecting Elon to at least name-check the meme-inspired cryptocurrency that started as a joke in 2013 and which is now, according to CoinGecko, one of the largest digital coins with a total market value of $79 billion. Among some recent developments, Guy Fieri tweeted this week that his Flavortown restaurants are now accepting Dogecoin. Likewise, the Oakland A's are selling seats for Dogecoin, and Musk himself promoted his SNL appearance this weekend with a tweet that gave a nod to his fandom of Dogecoin and read, simply, "The Dogefather SNL May 8." But for my money, no pun intended, there was a different piece of Dogecoin news in recent days that fascinated me, and might do the same for you, even if you don't really understand or care about anything related to cryptocurrency. And it involves Dogecoin co-creator, Billy Markus. Earlier this week, the market capitalization of Dogecoin hit an all-time high (it's around $79 billion, as of the time of this writing). The automaker Honda Motor Co. Ltd., meanwhile, has a market cap right now of a little more than $54 billion. Why are we bringing Honda into the picture? Well, it's because Markus revealed in an interview with the finance news site Benzinga back in March that he'd sold off all of his holdings in the cryptocurrency in 2015 for about what it would cost to buy a used Honda Civic at the time — a little less than $10,000. How remarkable, in other words, it is that Dogecoin is now bigger than Honda itself. "No one would have heard of (Dogecoin) in the first place if it wasn't a meme, (and) Elon wouldn't (have tweeted) about it," Markus told the site. “Dogecoin being a lighthearted, friendly, and amusing meme is the main thing that separates it from the pack -- taking away its main differentiation and turning it into a generic crypto seems like a pretty bad idea.” You don't have to be fluent in the language and mechanics of cryptocurrencies to understand that there's something major going on when a guy can sell his holdings for the equivalent price of a Honda Civic, and then that same cryptocurrency goes on to have a market cap that's bigger than all of Honda. Then again, there's so much about Dogecoin that blows my mind -- like the fact that 10,000 new Dogecoins are programmed to be issued every minute between now and the end of time, according to Fortune magazine. Because of that, the cryptocurrency should never have a consistent value -- and, in fact, that value is supposed to always get cheaper. “I’m half detached, but it’s weird that something I made in a few hours is now part of internet culture,” Markus told Fortune. https://twitter.com/blockfolio/status/1390003171507019776 https://twitter.com/hiddin2urleft/status/1390133787866984449

The search for a new face behind the lectern is nearing its conclusion.
The Netflix cancellation axe has swung again, this time bringing an end to The Irregulars -- an 8-episode drama set in Victorian London in parallel with the stories of Sherlock Holmes. This cancellation comes amid what feels like a spate of such decisions in recent days from the streamer, which has also included Netflix opting not to renew The Duchess as well as the decision to end The Last Kingdom with its upcoming Season 5. According to Netflix's official description about the series, The Irregulars "follows a gang of troubled street teens who are manipulated into solving crimes for the sinister Doctor Watson and his mysterious business partner, the elusive Sherlock Holmes. As the crimes take on a horrifying supernatural edge and a dark power emerges, it'll be up to the Irregulars to come together to save not only London but the entire world." Based on the series' current Rotten Tomatoes scores, it doesn't look like the show resonated much with audiences -- it currently has a very tepid 54% audience score on the review aggregation site, versus a 78% critics score. To some fans, though, news of this cancellation comes as a shock. As a matter of fact, just a few days ago, the series was on our latest weekly list of the 10 most-watched shows on Netflix at the moment, courtesy of data provided regularly to BGR from the team at the streaming search engine service Reelgood. Based on the works of Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Irregulars starred Thaddea Graham as Bea, the leader of the gang of youngsters, along with McKell David, Jojo Macari, Harrison Osterfield, and Darci Shaw, with Henry Lloyd-Hughes in a recurring spot as Holmes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTE5MAGpflw In other recent Netflix cancellation news, people are so upset with Netflix for canceling The Last Kingdom that a petition has been launched on Change.org to keep the show going at least for another season. And that petition has already garnered around 14,000 signatures as of the time of this writing. "It was announced that The Last Kingdom Season 5 would be the final season," the petition reads. "This is devastating and shocking news to all fans of this amazing show. "The series, currently showing on Netflix, is based on the historical novel series (Saxon Tales) by Bernard Cornwell, and there are 13 books in the series following the warrior Uhtred against the backdrop of the formation of England. There are enough books to cover at least 6 seasons, so it is unacceptable to all the fans of the show that season 5 would be the last one. Uhtred's story and the history of England deserve a proper ending. This is the best show on Netflix right now and has a passionate, dedicated and growing fandom who will always be here to support and promote it worldwide!" Meantime, here's a sampling of some of the reaction on social media to this newest cancellation from Netflix, of The Irregulars: https://twitter.com/Simranfangirl/status/1389742899936514050 https://twitter.com/wakeah_99/status/1389701201734901760 https://twitter.com/lifeasnikky/status/1389709797319131137 https://twitter.com/Hindsite20/status/1389759718592241667
