Dogecoin – Giving Control of Money Back to People
Going all praises for Dogecoin, the exchange notes that the cryptocurrency is “organic, irreverent, and fun”. In the press release, Gemini notes that Dogecoin continues the Bitcoin tradition of giving the control of money back to the people. It further adds:
“Yes, it’s a meme coin, but all money is a meme. And all money is both an idea and a matter of faith or belief in it. Over the multi-milennia history of money, the majority of money (be it shells, beads, precious metals, etc.) has been what we the people say it is and believe it is”.
Gemini also refers to Dogecoin as the “perfect vehicle” to carry forward the core and fundamental truth about money. It also adds that Dogecoins reflect the true history and nature of money. Well, its a big decision from Gemini at this stage! Dogecoin has turned out to be the people’s choice and promoted by several popular personalities and billionaires like Elon Musk in the past.
During this crypto market rally, Dogecoin (DOGE) has truly emerged as an indomitable force.Source
