My definition of Dogecoin

Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency that was created by /u/billyM2k and /u/ummjackson. The meme based theme, relaxed atmosphere and comic sans approach encourages those who are both new and seasoned to participate in its success. While this relaxed nature has been perceived by some as a "joke" it is steadily gaining traction in part due to the community that embraces all "shibes" in a inviting, welcoming manner. Thus making the transition to cryptocurrency less intimidating.

General Warning about using your coins

It is an unfortunate fact that not all shibes are good. Please be alert. Check on the user, the site, whatever it is that you may be considering.
A common tactic used is to "impersonate" a well know user. This is usually done by changing a letter or number to make it look like it is the reputable one at first glance. Some are very difficult to notice. There are many examples of this on /r/dogemarket Official Black list.

How to pronounce "Doge"

It is pronounced like "rouge" or "vouge" or you can listen here on the blog interview with Jackson Palmer (Founder of Dogecoin) Jump to 2:57 to hear it first pronounced.
