Why It Matters: Ren, an open protocol, that claims to enable the movement of value between blockchains, launched renDOGE in January

The Open Ren Doge decentralized application or dApp allows people to mint and burn DOGE on Ethereum. The Chief Operating Officer of Ren, Michael Burgess, said about the development at the time, ”Dogecoin is no longer a meme coin; it is now a viable financial instrument in its own right.”

DeFi or Decentralized Finance linked coins, projects and the entire arena have been gaining traction of late. PanCakeSwap (CAKE) and Binance Coin (BNB) are some other cryptocurrencies that have soared lately amid the frenzy.
