Dogecoin Funds Nascar Sponsorship

Dogecoin To Appear On Nascar

Dogecoin has always been known for doing great things. From the extremely friendly community to the random Dogecoin giveaways, kindness has always been a strong point for what was once known as a ‘joke’ cryptocurrency.

However, Dogecoin has gained most of its publicity from the giveaways and sponsorships it has become a part of.

Previously, the Dogecoin community had donated money to both build clean water wells in Kenya, as well as fund the Jamaican bobsled team in last year’s winter olympics. This time, Dogecoin is going to appear on Nascar.

A bit over a week ago, a user on Reddit noticed that the NASCAR driver Josh Wise was still without a sponsor on his car. It seemed like a long shot at the time, but user Reddit_Racing proposed to collect $55,000 in Dogecoin donations in attempt to make Dogecoin the sponsor of the upcoming driver.

Raising all of this money was not an easy task. Nearly 68 million Dogecoins needed to be raised very quickly in order to fund the driver before the race at Talledega Superspeedway in early May.

Despite the rush, the task was made significantly easier by Moolah_, a Reddit user that accidentally donated 20,000,000 ($15,000) dogecoins. Despite adding an accidental zero to the amount of coins he desired to donate, he stood by his mistake, and brought Dogecoin significantly closer to appearing on Nascar.

Currently, Reddit and the Dogecoin community are running a contest to finalize the design of the car. Regardless of how the design turns out, you’ll be seeing Josh Wise and the number 98 Dogecar racing around the track on May 4th.
