Dogecoin(DOGE) - POW/AUXPOW - Scrypt
Dogecoin is a fun, new and rapidly growing form of digital currency.
This form of digital currency is called “cryptocurrency”; a type of digital currency.
Cryptocurrency is completely anonymous, decentralized, and extremely secure.
Dogecoin is used with a wallet on your computer, your smartphone, or a website.
You can use it to buy goods and services, or trade it for other currencies (both other cryptocurrencies or traditional currency like US dollars).
One of the most popular uses for Dogecoin is “tipping” fellow internet-goers who create or share great content. Think of it as a more meaningful “like” or upvote, with real value that can be used all across the internet.

Dogecoin [Doge] Wallet Update :1.14 Alpha 3
This is the third alpha release of Dogecoin Core 1.14! It contains an important bugfix from the previous alpha, and you are recommended to upgrade. This update changes the default transaction version generated from 2 to 1, so that they are understood by 1.10 clients. Previously the transactions were ignored by old clients and therefore never mined on the production network. We'll update to version 2 transactions in a later release.
The alert system has also been re-added to this version, and live money tests have started with this version. It's essentially a beta candidate, although further cleanup is expected before there is a formal beta.
- This is not a binary release, you must be comfortable compiling it yourself.
- Please do not mine on the production network with this release, as it would trigger a soft fork earlier than expected.
The key tasks before the final 1.14 release include:
Update Gitian builds to support OS X.
Stress test the release on the test network.
Hard disable (i.e. rip out) upgrading via version bits as it poses a risk to AuxPoW if there's any mistakes in it being disabled currently.
