History of Dogecoin
Dogecoin was launched on December 6, 2013. Dogecoin uses a mascot derived from the popular meme of Shiba Inu's dog. What started as a small joke has now become a large crypto community. Dogecoin is also often known as a "friendly" digital currency for good reason. After its success, Dogecoin also became known for charitable donations and various positive activities.
Fans of Dogecoin call themselves Shibes! They even have their own Shibe language. The language is arranged based on broken English terms and phrases such as "such amazing", "much grateful", and "many work".
