Dogecoin (DOGE) co-founder Billy Markus has come up with a proposal to drive adoption of the meme cryptocurrency. He would like the community to create a bridge between the Ethereum and Dogecoin blockchains so that DOGE can be used on non-fungible token marketplaces (NFTs).
Towards a strengthening of the Dogecoin ecosystem
On his Twitter account, Dogecoin (DOGE) co-founder Billy Markus mentioned several things to expand the use cases for the crypto meme, including making it easier to adopt.
For its author, the idea would be to create a bridge between the Ethereum (ETH) and Dogecoin (ETH) blockchains in order to facilitate the interactions of both ecosystems.
Thus, this compatibility would allow the use of DOGE on markets for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) based on the Ethereum blockchain, such as the OpenSea platform for example.
“Allowing payment for NFTs through DOGE would greatly increase its usefulness,”said Billy Markus.
The main goal of these various proposals is obviously to promote the adoption of the meme cryptocurrency.
The tweet was received positively by the community and they obviously hope that this idea will be realized in the near future. In response, one user wrote:
“Integrating DOGE into the NFT ecosystem would be a huge benefit to the community.”
Adoption continues to grow
In addition to these proposals to drive adoption, Dogecoin remains as attractive as ever as a payment method.
Indeed, the community has recently been active in urging AMC Theaters CEO Adam Aron to accept Dogecoin.
In addition, the Dallas Mavericks NBA franchise, owned by billionaire Marc Cuban, has launched a cashback rewards program to encourage fans to pay with Dogecoin. The latter ended this Thursday, September 30, 2021.
As we can see, even if Dogecoin remains simple in terms of its use (purchase or storage), it is starting to gain importance, especially as a means of payment.
Moreover, the community does not intend to stop there, since the latter is more use cases for the DOGE, hence the idea of compatibility with Ethereum.
