Dogecoin is created as a humorous alternative to Bitcoin. It is named after an internet meme involving shiba inu dogs or “doges” doing silly things. Markus gives a statement about his vision for Dogecoin:

I really want the community to not worry so much about the current value in dollars or even Bitcoin and just enjoy using this cryptocurrency and learning what cryptocurrency is.
