The Meaning and Power of Dogecoin

I believe the main point of Dogecoin, and the real power it has is this:G943ObL.jpg

DOoS‘ing Charities.

No, read that again, I didn’t say DDoS-  I said DOOS!

Distributed Outpouring Of Support.

We have already seen with the micro-transaction power of Dogecoins, how easy and effortless it is for an individual to donate, and multiplied by a large community we now hold a tool to laser-focus problems in the world and DOOS them into oblivion.

I think it will be the Dogecoin legacy that this crypto has made it so fantastically easy and satisfying to donate to a cause. The snowball effect and force-multiplying aspects of the Internet and communities like this create an altruistic flashmob mentality that focuses on good.

Of course you already know this. You have seen it if you have been here for a few days. Let’s cherish these early moments, and remember where we came from, and be mindful of where we should and could go. I’m humbled to be able to participate in this community. I tip my hat to all of you that help make this what it is.

This is more than a currency, this is more than a speculative investment, it’s more than just charity work. It’s a spirit, and idea, a vibe, and a way of being- but I didn’t have to tell you that. I think you know already!

After writing this I immediately stumbled upon an article from Pacific Standard. It talks about a new research paper where researchers show how giving away money actually creates happiness!

News regarding the specifics of the Dogecoin currency were released today.

Creators have said that after all the Dogecoins are mined in about a year, there will still be a 10,000 coin reward per block to remain indefinitely.

This move pleases some and enrages others, head over to the Reddit thread to follow the discussion, or go to the original GitHub thread on the matter.

Arts Technica also had something to say on the matter.
