It’s funded! It Raced!!
Look, I have to admit when the community began pushing towards it’s next mission I was a little skeptical.
After blowing through goal after goal of charitable cause, I thought it might be too soon to jump on another project.
However, the Dogecoin community would hear none of this. User /u/Goodshibe posted a great daily on the subject, which shows how the spirit of Dogecoin is really fun and playful, and how not everything has to be a charity or serious. We need to also play, and do goofy things. After all, we’re supposed to be this silly coin right?
We need to start actually doing silly stuff.
And thus, Doges4Nascar is born. Many people thought “giving fatigue” was going to slow this down this drive but once again, Dogecoin proves it has deep and generous pockets. The money will be used to sponsor Josh Wise and car #98 which has been looking for backers. He is sort of an underdoge, as you will, and doesn’t have the massive backing of his counterparts. He sure doesn’t drive like an underdog. With this money, Dogecoin will actually wrap the car in a design made by one of the community members for the popular Talladega race.
Can you imagine what the announcers are going to say?
As of this writing, the goal is
nearing completion, at 60,048,333 of Ð67,500,000 funded. Virtual currency entrepreneur and creator of Moolah.Io, Alex Green mistakenly added an extra zero and donated 20 million Dogecoin by mistake. Whoops! Sorry, no reverse transactions, Sir! In an act of pure Dogecoin goodness he stood by his mistake and even challenged someone to match him at 10%, offering up a “hot pass” to the race. It seems unofficially someone may have done just this, as a major chunk of the goal evaporated and was funded just hours after that post. Keep in mind- We have about 70 days left to the “deadline” for this goal.
Even as people mock and deny our very existence, we ignore and press on. Tipping people as we ride by on our moonrocket, created by the hard work of thousands of shibes, building an amazing infrastructure and community- it appears Dogecoin is rather unstoppable.
The only question now is, what’s next for this phenomenon?
