Notch, the creator of Minecraft, has released a new game called Cliffhorse which he developed within hours and is accepting payments in Dogecoin, though the game can be downloaded for free.
Security companies have discovered malicious apps which discretely turn Android phones into inefficient crypto-currency miners. The Play Store apps allowed a criminal to mine thousands of Dogecoins.
Australian businesses are continuing to accept Bitcoin payments weeks after exchange Mt. Gox became bankrupt. The crypto-currency's volatility has not deterred Imbiss25 and Glowgolf from trading it.
In a press release by India's central bank, the Reserve Bank of India, Dogecoins were acknowledged as a legitimate virtual currency - amongst the likes of competitors such as Bitcoin and Litecoin.
