  1. ” Originally formed as a joke, Dogecoin was created by IBM software engineer Billy Markus and Adobe software engineer Jackson Palmer. They wanted to create a peer-to-peer digital currency that could reach a broader demographic than Bitcoin. In addition, they wanted to distance it from the controversial history of other coins. Dogecoin was officially launched on December 6, 2013, and within the first 30 days there were over a million visitors to Dogecoin.com.” (Wikipedia).
    Is it because 30 million people say something has value that it actually has value?
  2. How is Dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies different from, say, Chuck E Cheese coins for use in Chuck E Cheese restaurants, or from Fortnite Dollars that can be spent inside the game Fortnite, or Club Penguin Dollars that can be spent inside the game Club Penguin?
