Reviews for Dogecoin

  • Donald McIntyre on Dogecoin Founder of EtherPlan and Collaborator at ETCDEV

    Dogecoin gave a more relatable and funny face to crypto, and that augmented awareness for Doge and crypto in general. It also helped explain what the hell this stuff is. It was all over the media at the time.

  • Simon de la Rouviere on Dogecoin Engineer of Societies at ConsenSys

    Medium-of-exchange tokens work when their signaling value is higher than the cost to implement it. There's always value in this collectible aspect of it. See: Dogecoin.

  • Tuur Demeester on Dogecoin Founder of Adamant Capital

    Many [altcoins] have a massive lack of credibility. E.g., Dogecoin: joke coin, abandoned by its founder, zero development, market cap of +$1bn.

  • Peter Todd on Dogecoin Applied Cryptography Consultant

    Dogecoin is merge-mined, so the marginal cost to attack it is zero; attacking Monero is much more expensive than that.

  • Jackson Palmer on Dogecoin Group Product Manager at Adobe and Creator of Dogecoin

    I think it says a lot about the state of the cryptocurrency space in general that a currency with a dog on it, which hasn't released a software update in over 2 years, has a $1B+ market cap.

  • Jameson Lopp on Dogecoin Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    I laughed when I initially heard about Dogecoin, but the Dogecoin community has done more in a month than Litecoin has in years. Impressive.

  • John McAfee on Dogecoin Founder of McAfee Antivirus

    DOGE is an investment in the playful spirit that nourished the early developers and adopters of cryptocurrerncy. Sadly, that smiling spirit has been largely replaced by seriousness, anger and dry self-interest.
