Dogecoin Is Sending The Jamaican Bobsled Team To The Winter Olympics

On January 19, a fundraiser was established by the Dogecoin community to raise $30,000 for the Jamaican Bobsled Team, which had qualified for, but could not afford to go to, the Sochi Winter Olympics; $30,000 was donated by the second day, and the Dogecoin to Bitcoin exchange rate rose by 50%. As of 29th January, Dogecoin has a market capitalization of 58.9 million USD.

This is the first time that the Jamaican team has qualified for the Winter Olympics since 2002.
