455M WordPress websites can accept Dogecoin
The plugin allows WordPress sites to accept Dogecoin payments simply using a Dogecoin address without any third-party payment processors, banks, or additional fees. This plugin also uses the Google API to generate QR codes and the CoinGecko API to convert fiat to the current price of Dogecoin.
This can be seen as a positive for Dogecoin adoption as WordPress is being used by over 455 million websites by 2021 and the number is only growing.
In recent months, a number of discussions about Dogecoin use cases have surfaced. According to the Dogecoin Foundation, its sole purpose is to make Dogecoin the global currency for paying for goods and services.
As previously reported, DOGE was used to buy a controlling stake in the BIG3 league’s Aliens basketball team. Bill Lee, the founder of the Dogecoin wallet MyDoge, purchased non-fungible tokens (NFTs) for Aliens exclusively in DOGE, thereby providing a controlling stake in the BIG3 pool in return. As part of the deal, the MyDoge/Dogecoin branding will appear on Team Aliens jerseys as well as on Big3 events and broadcasts.
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, recently stated that Dogecoin will gain more utility if more businesses adopt it. The billionaire also praised the introduction of tipping as a use case, saying that tip creators with Dogecoin would be nice. Despite the possible use cases in the Web3 arena, Musk stated that a bridge between Ethereum and Bitcoin is unnecessary.
However, Dogecoin creator, Shibetoshi Nakamoto, believes that the easiest and best use case for Dogecoin is still using Dogecoin to collect money. DOGE is currently trading at $0.127, down slightly over 2% in the past 24 hours. Dogecoin tumbled along with the rest of the market during the widespread sell-off on May 5.
