Looks like Dogecoin is drawing supporters from all sorts of unlikely places! In a testament to its geographic and demographic reach, it has attained a fan in a Korean Maxim Model.

While it is uncertain that this counts as a dogecoin miner or dogengineer (or chief cryptoengineer) cosplay, that is a shirt with a certain dogeminer with a shovel and pickaxe.

Ellie Yoon Yeonghwa is a model, and yeonghwa also has the added meaning of “movie”.

She was first introduced to bitcoin by a foreign friend (instead of the COEX bitcoin atm) Korea has been one of the most advanced internet countries in the world, and looks to be further cementing its lead.

But I started losing interest in Bitcoin because some of Bitcoin supporters seems to turn into politicians buildng a Bitcoin goverment. Then I found out that Dogecoin exist! I love dogs and crytocurrency. so It seemed to be the perfect combination <3. This peaked my interest quite a bit!:D I find the Dogecoin subreddit to be a relaxing community that loves having fun. I wanted to support Dogecoin and have fun with it too 😀 I had a photoshoot in Seoul and wanted to represent Dogecoin

Hello, my name is Ellie and I’m a 19 year old girl from South Korea. I’m a professional model and lover of all things new and revolutionary. I was always amazed by the concept of cryptocurrency. and since the first cryptocurrency I knew was Bitcoin. I loved Bitcoin a lot at first. But I started losing interest in Bitcoin because some of Bitcoin supporters seems to turn into politicians buildng a Bitcoin goverment. Then I found out that Dogecoin exist! I love dogs and crytocurrency. so It seemed to be the perfect combination <3. This peaked my interest quite a bit!:D I find the Dogecoin subreddit to be a relaxing community that loves having fun. I wanted to support Dogecoin and have fun with it too 😀 I had a photoshoot in Seoul and wanted to represent Dogecoin in some unique way, so please take a look at my photos and tell me what you think XP.

If you want to see more photo’s of me, I’m actually running in a contest right now for Miss Maxim Korea. This could be a huge breakthrough for me as I’m about to enter the top 4 and a little help from the Doge subreddit would go a long way in helping me on my quest! I promise that if things go well I will make some more photo’s with Dogecoin related merchandise or whichever would please the subreddit.

Oh I only posted on Dogecoin subreddit 😀 and asked for help to some of my korean friends. But I am 100% sure that what pulled me ahead today was not because of my korean friends. 🙂 I am not a marketer 😛 I am not rich or famous enough to use a marketer for Maxim vote 🙂 I never closed Dogecoin Reddit tab today lol. I was checking all the time sitting my ass on my bed all day. I do actually like Dogecoin a lot 😛 Compared to Bitcoin community people, people here seem to be more relaxed and not too serious like super business men:D (Not saying I don’t like Bitcoin, I love Bitcoin. But some of people from Bitcoin community seems to be forgetting its first intention.) Thank you again for supporting me ! XD

Many thanks to people who are supporting me XD I just heard from other contestant of Miss Maxim that her opponent’s brother is a hacker, programmer. So when her vote was up, He made the “Vote” button vanish for the last 2~3 hours so that no once can even vote for her. Hence she lost and told about it to Maxim. But Maxim didn’t care. I guess this Miss Maxim contest is no longer about models. It seems like it’s about “Who has the better programmer friend” And I am pretty sure my opponent is getting help from her programmer friends because last night, she got 300 votes in 10 minutes even thought it was 3:00 AM in korea. And she is close friend of the girl whose brother is a hacker/programmer.
