Know what Dogecoin News ?

Well Dogecoin News refers to information regarding Dogecoin which is a combination of bitcoin and Doge, it was a result of joint work of an Australian brand and marketing specialist and a programmer in Portland. Interestingly the two have never actually met but it is amazing that the two have successfully combined Bitcoin and doge.

Doge phenomena started when someone started posting images of Comic Sans thought bubbles in the imagined syntax of a devastatingly cute ShibaInu dog on the Internet. There were several variations on the meme and it is just one of those Internet things. However, people love it and a few weeks later a person named Jackson Palmer, who worked in Sydney marketing department tweeted that investing in dogecoin is going to be the next big thing.”

Buoyed by encouraging replies a week later, hebought the domain Dogecoin.com. At the same time,in Portland, Billy Markus had been trying to program his own digital currency that would be more lucrativeand would appeal to a broader demographic as compared to bitcoins. He happened to come across  Dogecoin.com and felt he should just make this coin and he started reconfiguring Bitcoin’s sourcecode, which is publicly available, to turn its user-facing elements into the doge meme.

So both Markus and Palmer formed a partnership and Dogecoin was launched. Now it is the 13th-largest with a MARKET value of $8 million with a full blown ecosystem: in addition to the website, it has a dedicated blog and forum, and of course a subreddit.

The Dogecoin we their popularity to “tipping.”As on internet it has become a common practice for peopleto “tip” others for a good deed in digital currency of choice. As tipping in Bitcoin has become expensive, so people are now opting for Dogecoin. According to Dogecoin News only about a week after itslaunch, Dogecoin became the second-most-tipped currency.
