What is Dogecoin (DOGE)

Dogecoin is an open-source, P2P digital currency created by Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus in December 2013 as a ‘joke cryptocurrency.’ The name Dogecoin references the Shiba Inu dog from the viral ‘Doge’ Internet meme at the time.

Dogecoin (DOGE) features

While initially launched as a joke, Dogecoin has remained relevant in the broader cryptocurrency market due in large part to its vibrant community of supporters. Dogecoin is primarily used as a tipping mechanism today for online content creators and other social media users that support the network.

Interestingly, Dogecoin has carved out a niche in the cryptocurrency industry for its inclusive social media community and relaxed approach to its purpose. Dogecoin hit a $1 billion market cap in January 2018 to its creator, Jackson Palmer’s, dismay.

Dogecoin has received favorable, albeit intentionally playful, commentary from popular personalities, such as Elon Musk on several occasions.

Dogecoin Design and Unique Characteristics

Dogecoin is widely supported among exchanges and cryptocurrency wallets due to its persistent community and longevity in a sector (i.e., cryptocurrencies) where many projects are short-lived. Dogecoin is even one of the cryptocurrencies listed on the Robinhood Crypto investing app and is now supported by Coinbase -- one of the leading exchanges in the United States.

The project has wallets available for Linux, Windows, Mac, and Android.

Dogecoin is a proof-of-work (PoW) cryptocurrency like Bitcoin but deploys a version of the Scrypt algorithm rather than the SHA-256 used in Bitcoin. The cryptocurrency was initially based off of LuckyCoin, which in turn was based on Litecoin -- which also uses the Scrypt algorithm.

At a technical glance, Dogecoin is similar to Litecoin with some slight differences such as a 1 minute block time instead of the 2.5 minutes in Litecoin.

Whereas most cryptocurrencies take a deflationary or minimalistic inflationary approach to their monetary policy, Dogecoin is perpetually inflationary. A fresh 10,000 DOGE is created per block at a decreasing annual rate. There is roughly 120 billion DOGE currently in circulation, surpassing the initial cap of 100 billion that was changed to an uncapped design in 2014 by Palmer.

Community and Future Plans

Dogecoin’s Reddit page has 133k followers, making it among the most popular cryptocurrency communities on the social media platform. A bulk of the Reddit content centers on memes and broader cryptocurrency market prices, which has fueled Dogecoin’s sustainability as a playful cryptocurrency.

Palmer is no longer associated with the project, and the community has taken control of the direction of the network with only a handful of development contributions over the course of the last year. Despite the minimal development activity on the project’s Github repo, the hash power in the network has continued to grow -- indicating a surprisingly strong mining market.

The ultimate development goals of Dogecoin are unclear and largely whimsical, but core developers for the project have made it clear they wish for the project to keep running. Seeing how DOGE is consistently supported by exchanges, payment providers (i.e., Bitrefill gift cards), and online memes/commentary, it seems unlikely that Dogecoin will be going away anytime soon.

What began as a joke has ironically turned into one of the more sustainable cryptocurrency communities in the broader ecosystem of altcoins.
