Dogecoin Foundation Returns With Ethereum’s Buterin as Adviser

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.”
