Ukraine adds Dogecoin to list of accepted cryptos

News

Prime Minister Asks DOGE Co-Founder and Elon Musk to Donate.

Fedorov highlighted that meme assets like dogecoin are worth more than the Russian ruble and “even [memes] can support our army and save lives from Russian invaders.”

The dogecoin acceptance follows the Ukrainian government’s initial plea for bitcoin and ethereum donations which saw millions worth of BTC and ETH pour into the donation addresses.

Furthermore, the crypto exchange Binance launched a crowdfunding initiative to support Ukraine, and Binance donated $10 million as well.

“Sent some,” DOGE’s co-founder Billy Markus tweeted in response to Fedorov’s tweet. “Dogecoin folks aren’t usually rich and dogecoin itself is generally used for small transactions, but we are a caring and passionate bunch.

After the DOGE co-founder’s statement, a great number of other DOGE supporters also told Fedorov that they sent dogecoin to the address.
