The Doge Report: Jackson Palmer says Stop fixating on Bitcoin Price, CNN covers Dogecoin $135,000 house
“The community needs to stop being so fixated on ‘the price of Bitcoin,’ because the end goal should be to keep it stable. The viability of a currency shouldn’t be pegged to how much profit you can make when you cash out to a fiat currency. Unfortunately, that’s how a lot of people see it right now.
We have a saying in the Dogecoin community: 1 DOGE will always equal 1 DOGE. If a currency’s users truly believe in that and build the trust of merchants in the currency as a legitimate store of value (independent of any other currency), only then do I think digital currency will succeed.”

Man selling home for $135,000 in Dogecoins
(CNN) — The Dogecoin started off as a penniless Internet joke. But Matt Thompson plans on selling his vacation home for this meme-inspired currency.
The 27-year-old entrepreneur has been selling games and gadgets over the Internet for years, but nothing as big as his Wisconsin vacation home, which he is offering for 100 million Dogecoins.
Dogecoin (pronounced DOHJ-coin) isn’t something tangible like the dollar bills in your wallet. It’s an open source file-sharing form of cryptocurrency that was created by programmer Billy Markus in December 2013. The newbie cryptocurrency started off as a parody of Bitcoin, using the image of a perplexed Japanese dog. Chances are, you’ve probably seen Dogecoin’s mascot somewhere on the Internet already. As the Shiba Inu would say: Wow, much coin-cidence.
Thompson, who lives in Minnesota, primarily sells video and electronic game accessories online. He’s been able to buy and sell inventory from places such as China by using the digital currency. “It’s safe and easy with minimal fees,” he said. “To date, I’ve found it to be very good for supplementing payment methods.”
The Dogecoin community is doing more than just joking around and financing online shopping sprees. The currency is being used to raise money for events and people. Before the Sochi Winter Olympics kicked off, Dogecoin fundraisers helped send the Jamaican bobsled team and an Indian luge contender to Russia to compete in the Games. The Dogecoin Foundation and Reddit’s r/Dogecoin community were able to raise more than $30,000 for the two causes.
