  1. For the longest time I was an ardent supporter of Bitcoin. Like many of the libertarian and tech-savvy users of BTC, I saw a future of paperless, bankless money just waiting to be explored. That is, until I spent my 1.8 BTC on a new Nvidia GPU for my rig. At the team each coin was worth about $140 or so. In my mind, it was a great investment. I hadn't paid any direct energy fees (yay college tuition!) and essentially received the card I mined for free. And then a few months later, I decided to check how much BTC was worth. It was a rude surprise to see they were worth over a grand a piece. This made me upset for many reasons, chief among them being that I'd felt I had made a poor choice in my investments. And then came the feeling of remorse that I'd gamed the system of bizarre user-centric values for my own personal benefit. It felt no different than the barons who currently only millions of dollars worth of BTC, albeit I'm much poorer than they. With that blast-off of coins and the eventual difficulty increase in mining due to ASICs, I left the land of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency for months. I attempted mining Litecoin but that only ended in futility. I even considered returning to BTC but ASICs had made my GPUs more or less obsolete. And then along came Dogecoin. I'd heard of this meme-based cryptocurrency as it made the rounds on tech news sites for its sheer preposterousness. Dogecoin, based on the titular doge meme, is as ridiculous as it sounds. But there are more than a few fascinating reasons to take the altcoin quite seriously. For one thing, dogecoin is as newb-friendly as it gets. Even those with virtually no tech experience can hop along and experiment freely. And because dogecoins essentially have no real limit on how many can be mined, it's relatively easy for anyone to start mining. The other, more important reason dogecoin is a true contender is the community. I've never encountered a friendlier e-coin community than dogecoin's userbase. The folks here are genuinely kind and generous. Every one has a light-hearted approach to the coin and welcomes new users with open arms. Despite the high number of new member threads and beginner questions on Reddit, there's always someone willing to answer and guide new shibes (as well call ourselves) into the fold. While dogecoin mining is the easiest to jump into, having helping hands to assist you is never a bad thing! Generosity from the dogecoin community has even sent Olympic delegations and individual members to the most recent Winter Olympics in Sochi. Just ask the Jamaican bobsled team or the Indian men's single-luger and they'll tell you dogecoin helped get them to Sochi. It's a remarkable feat of the online community to rally together and donate so much money. And from the way things are looking, this trend will only continue as new shibes and old ones alike continue spreading dogecoin across the web. The most interesting part of dogecoin's growing power is how quickly it's become a top-four or top-three cryptocurrency. In just these past two months, dogecoin's risen 1000% in value. While it's still only worth about two-tenths of a penny, that's impressive considering it was worth .00025 cents several weeks ago. And even more BTC and other altcoin users are trading their stocks for dogecoins! What started off as a joke is becoming a widely-accepted e-coin. Because it's not scarce and finite as Bitcoin is, dogecoin makes more sense as a daily currency, only reinforcing the potential value of this internet phenomenon. As you can tell, I love dogecoin. The concept is bloody brilliant and could only have spawned from the internet. Heck, it's based on a meme declared dead as of last year! It's clear that doge has found a new residence inside our online wallets. Time will tell if dogecoin can continue its surge in popularity and value but, from where I'm standing, we'll reach the moon soon enough! For more information on dogecoin and advice on how to get started, check out this Reddit page. If you'd like a few dogecoins to start fueling your rocket to the moon, get a wallet and I'll send you some! For now, that's all. Shibe on!
  2. Yes, even internet memes are trademarked. This is the case with Christopher Orlando Torres' Nyan Cat and Charles Schmidt's . And according to them, Warner Bros. and 5th Cell knowingly infringed those trademarks when inserting both felines into their Scribblenauts games. So, now Torres and Schmidt are suing. The complaint claims the following: "... for the past three years, WB, along with game developer 5th have knowingly and intentionally infringed plaintiffs' copyrights and trademarks by using 'Nyan Cat' and Fatso's image in WB's top selling 'Scribblenauts' games, including, most recently, 'Scribblenauts Unlimited,' which WB released in 2011. ... defendants have used 'Nyan Cat' and 'Keyboard Cat,' even identifying them by name, to promote and market their games, all without plaintiffs' permission and without any compensation to plaintiffs." On top of an award of treble damages and entitlement to reasonable attorneys' fees, Torres and Schmidt are also demanding an injunction against the sale of Scribblenauts products until all of this is settled. Do you think it's fair that Warner Bros. and 5th Cell are being sued over the inclusion of Nyan Cat and Keyboard Cat in their games without permission?
