It was about time that the original “Doge” images which kickstarted the Doge-meme trend and became the face of Dogecoin cryptocurrency were auctioned off as an NFT. This is a pivotal moment for all Doge believers to finally take Doge to the moon.
Below is the photo of the original iconic image of the Shiba Inu “Kabosu” captured by her owner Atsuko Sato, a Japanese kindergarten teacher, on February 13th, 2010. The image was shared on Sato’s personal blog along with a series of other famous images which soon after went viral on the internet. The series of hilariously adorable images, “Curious Doge,” “Cuddly Doge,” “Shocked Doge”, and many more, will all be sold as NFTs in a number of drops.
“Never in a million years would I have imagined the impact that my photoshoot of Kabosu would have on the internet,” Atsuko Sato said of her pet via the dog’s dedicated Facebook page.
At the time of writing, the current highest bid for the original Doge face meme is 7 ETH ($17, 214). According to the website where it is being auctioned off on, the meme is being curated and certified by Know Your Meme, the internet meme database.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charities across the world, such as Terra Renaissance which works to reduce small arms/weapons, landmines, child soldiers and Plan International, an organization for children’s rights and equality for girls.
