A woman, who has remained anonymous, has made a donation to a dog shelter in Florida, thanks to the profits she made from Dogecoin.
According to the report by Fox 6, a woman stopped by the Halifax Humane Society in Daytona, Florida, on Saturday and offered to pay the adoption fees for all the dogs at the shelter, ready to be adopted.
Donation thanks to Dogecoin
Director Barry Kukes recounted:
“Basically, had made a very wise investment in some cryptocurrency and had a windfall and said it changed her life that she wanted to do something nice”.
Only one word was specified in the donation: Dogecoin.
The money from the donation will allow the shelter to house the dogs more easily. In fact, explains the director, the donation came at a time when the place was housing 42 more dogs rescued from fights. This led to the shelter having space problems. With the donation, it will be possible to facilitate adoptions and recover more space.
The performance of Dogecoin (DOGE)
The story is peculiar. The woman felt almost obliged to do something for dogs, because a dog was her good luck. In fact, Dogecoin is based on the meme of a Shiba Inu.
Born as a “satirical” cryptocurrency, with no real project behind it, but with a fierce community that includes Tesla CEO Elon Musk among its members, Dogecoin has been the talk of the town in recent weeks. In fact, in a short space of time, DOGE has gone from being worth a few thousandths of a dollar to rising to 43 cents on the dollar.
It goes without saying that those who bought it when it was worth a few thousandths have now accumulated a fortune. Especially if they sold before the collapse of these days, as the value has already halved from 43 cents to 20 cents. Dogecoin is in fact being characterized as a real speculative product, subject to very high volatility.
Perhaps this is the case of the woman who made the donation to the dog shelter.
