What is Dogecoin (DOGE)?
Dogecoin, often referred to by its ticker symbol DOGE, is a digital currency that was created in December 2013 by software engineers Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer, as a cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin. It was initially started as a lighthearted joke or parody cryptocurrency, featuring the iconic Shiba Inu dog from the "Doge" meme as its logo. Despite its origins as a humorous internet meme, Dogecoin quickly gained traction and developed a passionate following.
By the end of 2014, to bolster its security and stability, Dogecoin adopted merged mining with Litecoin, which strengthened its existing network of globally distributed nodes. Dogecoin's primary utility lies in microtransactions, often used for tipping on various online platforms and beyond.
