To those who thought Dogecoin (DOGE) has already burned itself out and well on its way down again, you cannot be more wrong. According to its co-founder Billy Markus, apart from the top meme cryptos recent listing in Coinbase, DOGE is now also releasing its own set of NFTs – precisely 420 of them.
Markus made the announcement on his Twitter account yesterday wherein he states that DOGE is up for trying something new. It wants to test out a brand new platform where users could create multiple copies of the same NFT through the popular NFT marketplace, Rarible.
The DOGE NFTs, which appear to be all in the Dogecoin Shiba Inu logo image, will reportedly be sold off in three separate tiers, two of which have impressively sold out already. The first tier managed to sell out 181 of the available 420 DOGE NFTs for 0.08 ETH each. The second tier sold 3 NFTs for the same price, while the third tier sale managed to list one NFT on the foundation for about 1.5 ETH, or $3,800, as of press time.
Brother of the Canadian Prime Minister, Kyle Kemper, goes all-in on DOGE
Kyle Kemper, the half-brother of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, made his plans known to launch a DOGE-based project, which he calls the “Million Doge Disco.” According to Kemper, it will be an amalgamation of some of history’s pop culture trends, including the popular smartphone game Pokemon Go, the 90s digital pet phenomenon Tamagotchi, and of course, NFTs.
The avid DOGE supporter, who is also a notable BTC proponent, went as far as stating that the youth will most likely find DOGE much more appealing than BTC, despite its dominance in the market. And as part of his promotional activity at the Bitcoin 2021 conference, he gave out Dogecoin to kids via colorful stickers with addresses.
