SO VERY WOW! DOGECOIN SPONSORS A NASCAR RACER
ADAM HOFMANAPR 22, 2014
Op-ed - So Very Wow! Dogecoin Sponsors a NASCAR Racer
Dogecoin has become a very popular cryptocurrency since it was introduced in December 2013. Since then, this currency based on the popular internet meme has been widely used as a “tipping” system for dogecoin Reddit users, while also acting as a successful medium for crowdfunding campaigns. The internet meme features funny, nonsensical and misspelled captions overlayed atop images of a Shiba Inu dog. For those unfamiliar, these captions include, “so very wow,” “such coin,” “very moon,” some of which are hard to understand for those outside the growing community.

Developed and created by Billy Markus, with an aim to create a “fun” cryptocurrency that could reach a broader demographic than Bitcoin, Dogecoin has achieved sizeable growth in the short six months since its introduction. Although it is not likely for the value to surpass Bitcoin, the trading volume of the cryptocurrency surpassed that of Bitcoin and all other cryptocurrencies combined in January 2014. Since that time, the community has been actively working to crowdfund athletes, including the Jamaican bobsled team, Sochi athlete Shiva Keshavan, and more recently, a NASCAR driver.


Less than a month ago, passionate fans of Dogecoin made history yet again. Shortly after the community supporting the meme-based cryptocurrency sponsored the Jamaican bobsled team in Sochi, Shiba Inus everywhere are yelping with spastic joy at the opportunity to sponsor another sport. This time around Dogecoin has raised over $55,000 to sponsor NASCAR driver Josh Wise.

At the time, Josh Wise was without a sponsor for the upcoming Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway in May. What the Dogecoin community did was nothing short of incredible. They banded together, took to Reddit and further showed us the power of cryptocurrency. To sponsor the NASCAR racer, members of Reddit donated 67.8 million Dogecoin just days after the crowdfunding campaign began, making this the first cryptocurrency themed racecar to be driven in a NASCAR event.

Moments after the announcement, Wise tweeted, “Just a week ago this was only an idea and now it’s a reality. So thankful for all the fans, Reddit community and Dogecoin for doing this.” Wise also participated in an AMA on Reddit and when asked how he felt about the knowing he was sponsored by a $55,000 crowdsourcing effort, he concisely stated, “Mind blown! Thankful.” Furthermore, when asked what the NASCAR community thought of the sponsorship, Wise summed it up in three words: “Confused, surprised, curious.”


The final design of the car was decided via the “paintjob contest” that took place on subreddit. The winning user designed three separate livery options: gold, silver and black. Soon after, the black scheme was chosen through a user poll held on Doge 4 Nascar, which received 58 percent of user votes.

The upcoming race on May 4th will further prove what cryptocurrencies like Dogecoin make possible. For Shiba Inus around the world, the focus on crowdsourcing, sponsorship and charity will continue to excite the community and drive its popularity. If you want to see history in the making, tune in to the race, which will definitely be “so very wow,” “so NASCAR” and consist of “much speed.”

太赞了! 狗币赞助纳斯卡赛车手
阿达姆-霍夫曼2014年4月22日
专栏文章 - So Very Wow! Dogecoin赞助一名纳斯卡赛车手
自2013年12月推出以来,Dogecoin已经成为一种非常受欢迎的加密货币。从那时起,这种基于流行的互联网备忘录的货币被广泛用作dogecoin Reddit用户的 "小费 "系统,同时也作为众筹活动的一个成功媒介。互联网备忘录的特点是在柴犬的图片上叠加有趣、无厘头和拼写错误的标题。对于那些不熟悉的人来说,这些标题包括:"非常哇"、"这样的硬币"、"非常的月亮",其中一些对于那些成长中的社区以外的人来说是难以理解的。

狗币由比利-马库斯(Billy Markus)开发和创建,目的是创造一种 "有趣的 "加密货币,可以达到比比特币更广泛的人群,在推出后的短短六个月内,狗币已经取得了可观的增长。尽管其价值不可能超过比特币,但该加密货币的交易量在2014年1月超过了比特币和所有其他加密货币的总和。自那时起,该社区一直在积极为运动员进行众筹,包括牙买加雪橇队、索契运动员Shiva Keshavan,以及最近的一位纳斯卡车手。


不到一个月前,热情的Dogecoin粉丝又一次创造了历史。在支持基于备忘录的加密货币的社区赞助了索契的牙买加雪橇队之后不久,各地的柴犬都在为有机会赞助另一项运动而痉挛地欢呼。这一次,Dogecoin已经筹集了超过5.5万美元,赞助纳斯卡车手乔什-怀斯。

当时,乔什-怀斯在即将于5月在塔拉迪加超速公路举行的亚伦499比赛中没有赞助商。Dogecoin社区所做的一切简直是不可思议。他们联合起来,在Reddit上,进一步向我们展示了加密货币的力量。为了赞助这位纳斯卡赛车手,Reddit的成员在众筹活动开始后几天就捐出了6780万个Dogecoin,使其成为第一辆在纳斯卡赛事中驾驶的加密货币主题赛车。

在公告发布后不久,Wise在推特上说:"就在一周前,这还只是一个想法,现在它已经成为现实。非常感谢所有的粉丝、Reddit社区和Dogecoin所做的一切。" 怀斯还参加了Reddit上的AMA,当被问及他知道自己是由5.5万美元的众包努力赞助时,他简明扼要地表示:"心花怒放!"。感谢"。此外,当被问及纳斯卡社区对这项赞助的看法时,怀斯用三个词总结了这一点。"困惑、惊讶、好奇"。


这辆车的最终设计是通过在subreddit上进行的 "涂装比赛 "决定的。获胜的用户设计了三种不同的涂装方案:金色、银色和黑色。不久之后,通过在Doge 4 Nascar上举行的用户投票,黑色方案被选中,获得58%的用户投票。

即将在5月4日举行的比赛将进一步证明像Dogecoin这样的加密货币所带来的可能性。对于世界各地的柴犬来说,对众包、赞助和慈善的关注将继续激发社区的热情,推动其普及。如果你想看到历史的形成,请收看比赛,这肯定会是 "非常哇","如此纳斯卡",由 "很多速度 "组成。
