|This thread was created for you to have a general idea about DOGECOIN! ( Because it is a very long post i have separated the Thread by parts) - Right now you are reading Part 3!|
1.HOW CAN I BUY DOGECOIN?
The most efficient way to buy Dogecoin is on a Dogecoin market, similar to a stock market. You can watch the current buy and sell orders as time goes on and study the charts. More information about markets can be found further on in this guide. Examples of Dogecoin markets include:
- Cryptsy ( cryptsy.com )
- Kraken ( kraken.com )
- BTER ( bter.com )
A more convenient way to buy Dogecoin is to use a debit or credit card, or an online service such as Paypal or Google Wallet. If you use one of these methods, the price will be marked up a bit from the market price, but the convenience is often worth it. Be smart, and only work with reputable sellers! Examples of sites to buy Dogecoin with credit/debit/online wallets:
- WeSellDoges ( weselldoges.com )
- LocalDogecoin ( localdogecoin.com )
- The Dogecoin market subreddit ( reddit.com/r/dogemarket )
NOTE: For some of the sites listed on this page, you may have to verify your identity first for legal purposes, so make sure you follow all of the site's rules and regulations.
2.WHAT'S WITH DOGECOIN AND THE DOG?
"Doge" is our fun, friendly mascot! The Shiba Inu is a Japanese breed of dog that was popularized as an online meme and represents Dogecoin.

Doge is a slang term for "dog" that is primarily associated with pictures of Shiba Inus (nicknamed "Shibe") and internal monologue captions on Tumblr. These photos may be photoshopped to change the dog's face or captioned with interior monologues in Comic Sans font.
The use of the misspelled word "doge" to refer to a dog dates back to June 24th, 2005, when it was mentioned in an episode of Homestar Runner's puppet show. In the episode titled "Biz Cas Fri 1", Homestar calls Strong Bad his "d-o-g-e" while trying to distract him from his work.
On February 23rd, 2010, Japanese kindergarten teacher Atsuko Sato posted several photos of her rescue-adopted Shiba Inu dog Kabosu to her personal blog. Among the photos included a peculiar shot of Kabosu sitting on a couch while glaring sideways at the camera with raised eyebrows (shown below, right).
In December 2013, shortly after the breakout of "Doge," the tech news site The Verge published an article identifying Sato's Kabosu as the original Shiba Inu depicted in the meme. In addition to Kabosu, The Verge also identified "Suki," a Shiba Inu who lives with San Francisco-based photographer Jonathan Fleming, as the scarfed dog portrayed in another popular instance of the meme.
In December 2012, the term "doge" appeared on Reddit in a post submitted to /r/DogsIWannaHug. The same month, an interior monologue captioned photo of a Schnauzer was submitted to Cheezburger with the title "Schnauze." On January 8th, 2013, the subreddit /r/Doge was created, sharing photos and videos of the captioned Shiba Inus. In May, /r/dailydoge was created to share one dog photo a day, captioned or not. Another single topic blog, shibe-doge, launched in July 2013 dedicated to sharing Shiba Inu photos. On July 29th, 2013, a doge thread was sticky-featured to the top of the 4chan board /s4s/ (Shit 4chan Says), garnering more than 600 replies.
On November 20, 2013, Youtube implemented an Easter egg, that changes the text to be colored and in Comic Sans, much like the original internal-monologue style captions, when user searches the phrase "doge meme".
