Dogecoin money to help the doggos? Woman pays all adoption fees at Shelter

An anonymous donor generously donated to a Florida animal shelter on Saturday after receiving a windfall from her investment in the meme cryptocurrency Dogecoins (DOGE), Fox6 News reported.

What happened: According to the report, a woman stopped by the Halifax Humane Society animal shelter in Daytona and paid all the adoption fees for dogs that were up for adoption. The donor did not want to be identified and wrote her name as “Dogecoin”.

The woman said she wanted to do something nice as her investment in cryptocurrency resulted in a windfall.

The doge donation came at perfect timing for the shelter, which had taken in 42 dogs from an alleged dog fighting ring in Daytona Beach, Fla., according to the Fox report.

Meanwhile, Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus said in a tweet that while he wants Doge to do well, he hopes “the community is a force for good.”

I said this from the start: I want DOGE to do well, but it’s much more important to me that the community is a force for good.

I don’t “own” Dogecoin. My share is pretty small for a creator.

I’m just the guy who made it by accident who will tell you things as they are.

Why it matters: Dogecoin is based on the popular internet meme “doge” and originated as a joke in 2013. The cryptocurrency was created by Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer.

Dogecoin began attracting attention around the time of the Reddit-fueled GameStop stock trading frenzy earlier this year. Shiba Inu cryptocurrency, which hit an all-time high of $0.4377 on April 16, has now become the darling of retail investors.

Dogecoin sees increased support from major companies including Conagra Brands Inc. (NYSE:CAG) and candy bar Snickers, which uses the Joke cryptocurrency for marketing purposes. The cryptocurrency’s year-to-date gains total an impressive 4296.8%.

Dogecoin is now the eighth largest cryptocurrency by market cap, according to CoinMarketCap data. However, the altcoin is down 24.4% over the past 24 hours and is trading at $0.2117 at press time.
