Dogecoin Co-Founder's 'Capped Doge' NFT Goes For $70,000, 'Dogecoin Alpha,' Others Find Takers Too

The series was described by Markus as “charming, unique, single mint" collectibles.

Markus said the artwork was in collaboration with his friend Laura Shigihara, a game developer and composer. 

According to Shigihara, she is responsible for the audio for “Plants vs. Zombies,” “To The Moon,” and “World of Warcraft” among others.

Why It Matters: The highest bid of 20.7727 Ethereum (ETH), or $70,509.19, was secured by the “Capped Doge” card, which according to Markus was inspired by countless requests to “CAP THE DOGE” that he received over the years.

Also sold was a card titled “Dogecoin Alpha” for 8.8888 ETH, or $30,171.73. The artwork is related to the creation of the joke cryptocurrency and the initial days of the collaboration between Markus and Jackson Palmer, the other co-creator of DOGE.

Other pieces that found takers include “Hydroge, So Destroy,” “Ackshually Doge,” “Doughge,” and “The Billionaire Doge.”

These cards were sold in the range of 0.25 ETH ($848.58) to 1.22 ETH ($4,141.07).

DOGE hit an all-time high on Monday, just below the 45 cent mark spurred on by Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) chief Elon Musk’s scheduled appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”

The Shiba Inu-themed cryptocurrency traded nearly 13% higher at $0.43 at press time. ETH traded 8.81% higher at $3,361.46.

In March, an NFT artwork by digital artist Beeple sold for a record $69 million. Everything from toilet paper to newspaper columns has been sold recently as NFTs.
