455 Million WordPress Websites Can Now Accept Dogecoin (DOGE): Here’s How

According to DogeDesigner, a UX/UI specialist and graphic designer at Dogecoin Foundation, millions of WordPress websites can now accept Dogecoin using the WooCommerce plugin “Easy Dogecoin Gateway” built by the Dogecoin developer known as “inevitable360.”

The plugin allows WordPress websites to accept Dogecoin payments simply by using Dogecoin addresses, without the need for any third-party payment processors, banks or additional fees. The plugin also uses the Google API to generate QR codes and the CoinGecko API to convert fiat into Dogecoin’s current price.

As previously reported, DOGE was utilized to purchase a controlling stake in the BIG3 league basketball team Aliens. Bill Lee, a founder of Dogecoin wallet MyDoge, bought non-fungible tokens (NFTs) for the Aliens exclusively in DOGE, thereby offering in return a controlling stake in the BIG3 team. As part of the deal, MyDoge/Dogecoin branding will appear on Aliens team jerseys and also on Big3 events and broadcasts.

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, recently stated that Dogecoin would gain more utility if more businesses accepted it. The billionaire also complimented tipping as a use case, saying that tipping creators with Dogecoin would be “nice.” Despite possible use cases in the Web3 sector, Musk claims that a bridge between Ethereum and Bitcoin is unnecessary.

Dogecoin creator Shibetoshi Nakamoto, however, believes the easiest and best use case for Dogecoin remains using Dogecoin for tipping.
