It’s a crypto built for a generation who were blinded by the idea of crypto coins and its value in the market. Dogecoin was built for a reason, to end the madness of cryptocurrencies.

Meme Into A Cryptocurreny

Jackson Palmer, an Australian crypto-investor who was curious about this digital currency was rather amazed to see the competition and serious atmosphere in the crypto-verse.

If you didn’t know, Shiba Inu dog meme became popular back in 2013. Palmer thought it would be fun to mock the seriousness revolving around the crypto-verse. He simply sarcastically tweeted how “Dogecoin” would be the next best and famous crypto in the market.

The internet is an unpredictable place, you can become a star overnight. That night Dogecoin was the star of the crypto-world. Surprisingly it caught the attention of many crypto-enthusiasts. Many caught on the joke with Palmer and pushed him to take it seriously to give the crypto-world an exciting and less serious altcoin.

Palmer critically reflected on the request to create an altcoin by the name of Dogecoin. A man named Bill Markus from Colorado, United State found out about Dogecoin. He realized how Palmer’s creation was a reflection of his own mindset.

Markus in a matter of days had everything handled and convinced Palmer to get on with him on the Dogecoin bandwagon. Dogecoin was brought to life to express love and sharing among the community members who love using cryptocurrency over fiat currencies.
