I have to say, I absolutely love Dogecoin. In the Bitcoin community, scams are rampant and those that are scammed never get their money back. In the Dogecoin community, there is exactly the opposite. I ran a website called EasyDoge (http://easydoge.com) that was designed as an online wallet service.
Unfortunately, it was hacked and quite a bit of money was stolen. I compensated everyone out of my own pocket for the losses. This isn’t a rare occurrence: the victims of two major hacks are being compensated by the SaveDogemas effort.
I think the sense of community that’s there is just as (or more) effective than the appeal of large numbers.
