What is Dogecoin?
Dogecoin was created in 2013 by IBM software engineer Billy Markus and Adobe software engineer Jackson Palmer. The two of them have never even met. They combined the hottest phenomenon of 2013: Bitcoin + "Doge" = Dogecoin.
Dogecoin was used as soon as it was released, and the two engineers were surprised. In the first month of the website’s launch, more than 1 million people visited dogecoin.com.
Doge, a popular emoji package in 2013, is a picture of a Shiba Inu with an inner monologue. This emoji can be used to express any mood. Because of this Shiba Inu's spoof expression, it has a large number of fans around the world.
