1. It’s easy to become a dogeillionaire
By the time most of us heard about Bitcoin, it was already worth hundreds of dollars and rising. There’s nothing wrong with buying a piece of a Bitcoin, but it’s not very exciting to own .00235 of something. Each Dogecoin costs a fraction of a cent, so you can become a wealthy shibe for only a few dollars. Make it rain!
3. You can dig for DOGE on your home computer
Digital currencies like Bitcoin and Dogecoin are created by running computer software that solves complicated math problems. Because of the way Bitcoin was designed, right now it takes expensive specialized equipment to have a chance of getting any. Dogecoin uses a different type of math problem, so you can mine them on your home computer or laptop! You wont mine as many doge with an old laptop as a fancy gaming computer, but who cares? DOGE is DOGE.
4. Dogecoin has gone from an idea to a $5,000,000 currency in two weeks
5. DOGE is the currency of the internet
Sure, you can buy a car with $$$$, but why would you when you can buy poems, bedtime stories, and skateboard kick-flips with Dogecoins? Oh, and actually you can buy a car with Dogecoins; reddit user prezdizzle beat out several other bidders to snag rich848’s 1994 Honda Civic for 1,516,234.2 DOGE (about $650 at current prices).
6. 5,000 DOGE will get you a bacon jalapeno pizza from Domino’s
Many Dogecoin. Such pizza. Wow.
8. Redditors are creating a dogecoin charity to benefit dog shelters
DOGES for Dogs is exploring multiple ways of helping generous shibes donate DOGE to help animal shelters. One approach would be to reward people who volunteer at animal shelters or donate supplies with DOGE; another would be to enable everyone who mines Dogecoins to automatically donate a portion of their coins to animal shelters.
