Dogecoin has you covered.
Or perhaps you thought that Bitcoin and Litecoin were simply taking themselves just a tad too seriously?
Again.. Dogecoin is there to save the day.
Dogecoin is love. Dogecoin is life.
From Meme To Currency?
If you’re not familiar with the Doge dog, the hugely popular internet meme.. Catch up real quick. Pretty funny, right? Okay, maybe not so much depending on which generation you’re from.
One of the many interesting things about this particular meme is that it basically comes with it’s own lingo, which is being marketed (peer-2-peer marketing, interestingly enough) into the culture of this coin, and it creates a very fun, unintimidating, satirical atmosphere. Said lingo is demonstrated in the headline of this article.
Dogecoin, like a recent DigitalTrends article so perfectly worded, is absolutely the most internet thing to happen, ever. And that’s where this “joke” of a coin may actually have the chance to differentiate itself from the rest of the exponentially growing digital coin market.
Regardless of your perspective, or what you think about Dogecoin, I bet it’s safe to say that you didn’t see this coming. Satoshi himself couldn’t have predicted this, but I bet he’s watching with a grin.
That said, in retrospect, it seemed pretty much inevitable that this would happen. With all of the gimmicky coins popping up over the last few months, it was only a matter of time before a meme made it into the crypto-coins world.
After all, this is supposed to be “internet cash” right? It seems only fitting that an all star internet meme graces the face of the currency, rather than morally questionable presidents. If it’s between Dogecoin and Obamacoin, I propose that history is playing out just as it should.
Birth of a Bubble?
We can’t help but think that this could catch on in a big way, ending in one seriously spectacular crash. Not that there’s anything wrong with crashes, Bitcoin has certainly seen it’s share and it’s still going stronger than ever. But really?.. Could Dogecoins end up being the pennies of the internet? The copper of cyberspace? With the number of coins being at one hundred billion, it’s logistically possible.
And that’s really the question here, as it seems pretty likely that Dogecoin will enjoy some short term success. It’s easy to dismiss this as a short lived fad, but if enough money finds it’s way into Dogecoin.. it may end up sticking around much longer than one might assume.
Currency isn’t like an internet meme.. It isn’t going to disappear quite as easily. Then again, who knows.. maybe it’ll disappear faster than it’s meme counter part. It’s difficult to make predictions in these early stages of the digital coin markets.
Keep in mind, that history is rife with examples of people using seemingly illogical instruments for money. In other words: So while we wouldn’t bet the farm on Dogecoin, we wouldn’t count it out either. Anything could happen.
Is This Real Life?
As much fun as this all is, we can’t help but be reminded of another popular internet meme: David after dentist. Are we really going to trade in Dogecoins? That remains to be seen, of course, but one thing’s for sure: Things are certainly getting interesting.
We’re of the opinion that, this coin is going to surprise a lot of people with just how much momentum and traction it gains. Never underestimate the internet’s appetite for satirical humor or cute pets.
To end in the light-hearted spirit of the Doge, we’ll leave you with a few visuals created by the community from the Dogecoin subreddit, a great place to learn more, if you’re interested.
