Coinbase to List Dogecoin

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong said during a Thursday earnings call that the cryptocurrency company is preparing to list Dogecoin on its platform.

Investors in mid-April watched as the price of Dogecoin, a cryptocurrency that began as a joke in 2013 and is based on a popular meme, surged 500% over one week, bringing the joke cypro into an unexpected spotlight.

“We plan to list DOGE in the next six to eight weeks,” he said during the call. “And then more broadly, we’re going to be focused on how we can accelerate asset addition in the future.”

Billy Markus, one of the co-founders of the joke cryptocurrency and who goes by the name “Shibetoshi Nakamoto” on Twitter, said Thursday that people voted to discuss Dogecoin at Coinbase’s shareholder meeting.
