A meme featuring a character from Spy x Family manga was shared with a Dogecoin DOGE/USD community on Reddit. The meme proclaimed, “In this world, spies use Dogecoin.”
What Happened: The user “VictorGarciaRocha” posted the meme on the r/Dogecoin discussion board. A similar post on the r/SpyxFamily subreddit did not receive a welcome reception.
The moderators of r/SpyxFamily deleted the post, citing the need to keep communities safe, civil and “true to their purpose.”
Why It Matters: The character in the meme is holding an invoice denominated in a currency that appears to have the same symbol as Dogecoin.
SpyxFamily features a fictional nation called The People’s Republic of Ostania. The currency used in Ostania is Dalcs with the "Đ” symbol, according to the Fandom wiki.
A moderator for SpyxFamily confirmed to Benzinga that the post was deleted because they have a rule against “low effort memes/edits.”
“The character was looking at an invoice with fictional currency in the manga called dalcs,” the moderator said.
Price Action: At press time, Dogecoin traded 2.7% lower at $0.12 over 24 hours, according to data from Benzinga Pro.
