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.”

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