DOGE

Dogecoin was launched in 2013 by Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer. Initially, the coin was meant to be a joke currency – its logo is a dog of the breed Shiba Inu, famous from internet memes. Also the official founder was named Shibetoshi Nakamoto, a play on the pseudonym of Bitcoin’s founder. Despite its for-fun origin, Dogecoin quickly grew an extensive online community and is now one of the top 30 currencies.

Technically, dogecoin uses Proof-of-Work with Scrypt algorithm, originally used by Litecoin. Therefore, just like Litecoin, the mining is done by computer-grade hardware and cannot be mined by more sophisticated ASICs miners.

Dogecoin is faster than both Bitcoin and Litecoin, with an average transaction speed of 1 minute, against the 2,5 minutes for Litecoin and 10 minutes for Bitcoin transactions.

Another major difference between Doge, Litecoin and Bitcoin is that the latter two currencies are deflationary due to them having a hard cap. Doge, on the contrary, is inflationary, which means mining can be maintained and lost coins are replaced.

Crypto APIs supports DOGE mainnet APIs and DOGE testnet APIs.

Creating Transactions Endpoint

Creating Transactions Endpoint

Using Crypto APIs, you can push transactions to blockchains one of two ways:Use our two-endpoint process outlined below, wherein we generate a TXSkeleton based on your input address, output address, and value to transfer. In either case, for security reasons, we never take possession of your private keys. We do use private keys with our Microtransaction API, but they are for low-value transactions and we discard them immediately from our servers’ memory.
