Newegg Now Accepting Dogecoin for Payments Via BitPay

Online retailer Newegg has introduced support for Dogecoin (DOGE) payments on its platform, boosting the meme token’s price considerably.

Computer part picking and sales platform Newegg announced via Twitter on April 20 that it’s considering accepting Dogecoin (DOGE) on its platform. The addition of the asset would be a great boost to its usability, which has largely functioned as a joke coin.

Newegg asked the Twitter community to retweet if they would like to DOGE support, and the response has been very positive.

Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus previously spoke about retailers accepting Dogecoin adding to the asset’s practical value:

The company was one of the earliest to begin supporting cryptocurrency payments. In 2014, it began accepting Bitcoin and added other assets over time. The 20-year-old company has a global presence, operating in North America, as well as in Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East.
