Happy Birthday Dogecoin!

Did you know that Dogecoin has arisen from a joke? It was the November, 28 2013 when the online marketer Jackson Palme made a joke on Twitter. He wrote “Investing in Dogecoin, pretty sure it’s the next big think” – and with this tweet the Dogecoin was born. The attention to crypto-currencies was given because of the fact that Bitcoin was trading over $1,000 and so many people look after possibilities to invest in the new currencies.

On December 8, 2013, a small community created the first dogecoin mining pool and made Dogecoin in the following months to the next big thing. The community grew and a lot of useful projects are resulting. In January this year the Jamaican Bobsled team were supported by the Dogecoin community with more than 26 million Dogecoins to join the Sochi Winter Olympics.

In March the steadily falling price of Dogecoin was near its peak – and the community set up a very successful campaing to raise money. The Doge4Water project raise money to give water to people in Kenya affected by drought. More than 40 million Dogecoins came together in a few weeks. And a really big single donation (14 million dogecoin) came from an anonymous person. Another great move was the Nascar campaign. More than $50,000 worth of Dogecoin were give to funt Josh Wise to sponsore his car in the Sprint Cup Series Nascar race.

This and many other projects and campaigns made Dogecoin popular and the growing community is deemed to be very friendly and helpful. The people want to do good things and they want to have fun. An ideal combo to back up the survive of the crypto-currency that was first only a joke!
