In the last month, Dogecoin (DOGE) has observed a notable upswing in transactions surpassing the $100,000 mark, coinciding with a substantial surge in the price of this meme-based cryptocurrency. The abrupt increase in both transaction volume and price suggests a heightened level of interest in Dogecoin, particularly from major financial entities recognized as “whales” and institutional investors. Billy Markus, an IT engineer, co-created the prominent meme-based cryptocurrency alongside Jackson Palmer in 2013. Originally conceived as a satirical imitation of Bitcoin, Markus has recently offered his perspective on the significant surge in daily DOGE transactions, which surpassed 1 million earlier this week. Dogecoin Transactions Grow The increase in transactions on the Dogecoin blockchain has been formally ascribed to an upsurge in trading of meme coins and an escalation in activity associated with Doginals, as verified by Markus, known as Shibetoshi Nakamoto on X.

Markus suggested that the primary rationale behind this phenomenon is the active utilization of the Dogecoin blockchain for the purpose of transferring Ordinals and low-value cryptocurrencies.

During that period, the developers expressed their intention for it to function as a faithful replication of Bitcoin Ordinals. The experiment yielded successful results, which is of notable interest. Users possessed the capability to engrave both images and textual content onto the Dogecoin blockchain. Doginals refer to the constituent components of Dogecoin, wherein every element represents a distinct entity known as a “Shibe” within the underlying Dogecoin network. These components are further distinguished by the inclusion of additional data, such as textual information or visual imagery. Image: Doginals FEPE, Medium. Overview Of The Doginals DRC20 Standard The recently introduced Doginals DRC20 standard enables Dogecoin nodes to encode data onto individual Shibe entities, resulting in the creation of a Doginal. The term “Shibe” has a parallelism with the Bitcoin counterparts “Satoshi” or “Sat”. In contrast to Doginals, DRC-20 tokens possess the capability to be exchanged in a manner consistent with conventional cryptocurrencies. The aforementioned S-coins were the subject of Markus’ discourse in his online publication. Related Reading: BLUR Clears The Way With 80% Blowout – Will Price Continue Soaring?
