Can Dogecoin get any more fun? I mean,seriously, have you played their Dogesin Space game? Or taken a peek at their imagepage? As I’m writing this, I know 700 shibes are gathering in San Franciscorevving up for DogeconSF. To answer my first question – yes, they can get more fun.
That’s right, the Doge has entered thegeocaching terrain. Geocaching was blew up as a world-wide phenomenon in May2000 when GPS users would hide a “stash” at any point in the world, makingothers use their devices to find its exact coordinates and unearth their prize.This stash usually consists of a logbook and perhaps a small personal gift fromthe stasher.
Fast forward 14 years, and the Shibes have created their own version. Four highschool students from New Jersey conceived the Dogecacheapp for NYC Tech Day, the world’s largest event for tech startups whichincludes over 400 exhibitors.
The Dogecache app takes the principle of geocaching except users leave behinddogecoins to find. Instead of leaving behind certain coordinates, stasherssimply “drop” coins at a certain location. Shibes hunting down the coinsbasically walk around looking at their smart phones until they come into rangeof a stash and pick them up. The larger the amount you leave behind, the largerthe search radius. And no picking up your own dogecoins!
Dogecache’s interface is an overhead Google map and “actsmore like a Foursquare check-in.”
Dogecoin isn’t the first digital currencyto make its own version of geocaching. Bitcaching was conceived in 2011and is similar to geocaching, except instead of a logbook, treasure hunters finda one-sided BIT cache.
So what do you think about the Dogecache concept? Weak attempt at bringing anew generation of geocachers into the game? Or a fun spin on the concept? Ordoes it matter? I mean, shibes already did their take on Flappy Birds. This writer highly doubts theycare about what the haters have to say.
