Right now•1 min read•Altcoins
The Dogecoin Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to support the development of the memecoin through advocacy, governance and trademark protection, has been re-established.
The foundation boasts some well-known board members and advisors, including Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, who is serving as the foundation’s "blockchain and crypto advisor." Jared Birchall, a representative appointed by influential dogecoin supporter Elon Musk, joins as the Foundation’s legal and financial advisor, while dogecoin core developer Max Keller will serve as a technical advisor and dogecoin founder Shibetoshi Nakamoto will be the community and memes advisor. Board members include Dogecoin Foundation veteran Jens Wiechers and dogecoin core blockchain developers Michi Lumin and Ross Nicoll. Originally launched in 2014, the foundation became inactive over time and eventually dissolved. The foundation is now hoping to secure a three-year budget so that they can hire a small staff to work on dogecoin full time. It also said that in the coming weeks the foundation “will be announcing new projects that will compliment [sic] the current Core Wallet to enable faster integration and easier APIs for Financial, Social and Charitable projects wishing to use Dogecoin.”
