You can now trade Dogecoin on Yahoo finance. BTC, ETH and LTC also included

Yahoo Finance have announced the ability to trade four cryptocurrencies directly on their platform. The four coins you can now trade are Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and the king of meme coins – Dogecoin.

You can now trade Dogecoin on Yahoo finance. BTC, ETH and LTC  also included

Following the addition of 100 cryptocurrency quote pages across the Yahoo Finance platform last year, Yahoo have gone one step further and have given users the ability to not only track all projects.

Yahoo have now made it possible to trade four cryptocurrencies directly from the platform. By making use of the iOS app, users will be able to buy and sell a variety of cryptocurrencies by linking their account “via an integration with our partners at TradeIt – including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Dogecoin”

Yahoo made the announcement on Friday morning which sees the web service provider move closer to cryptocurrency adoption with General Manager of Finance & Tech at Oath ,Joanna Lamber, commenting “As the leading provider of financial data, insights, and editorial content, we are constantly looking for ways to better serve audiences on the Yahoo Finance platform”.

Yahoo will continue to further connect their community of investors with relevant utilities on their trusted platform. The news to trade cryptocurrencies on Yahoo Finance for the first time ever, certainly shows that Yahoo is moving in the right direction.

The addition of Dogecoin to the 4 digital assets to trade, seems like a strange decision. However, the project has been around since 2014 and currently ranks #24 on Coinmarketcap with $47.2 million in daily volume being traded.

$Doge is currently the second highest climber in the top 100 with a 21.19% jump in price over the past 24 hours.

The DOGETHEREUM bridge project – Sidechains fueled by Dogecoin, Superblock and Ethereum

I wanted to acknowledge this great project because it would make Dogecoin “Smart Contract-Ready” – verified by the PoW of the Dogecoin cryptocurrency (and some sort of cutting-edge blockchain tech to be invented).

Sidechaining the Shibe –
A sidechain is just a separate blockchain. It is attached to the main chain / primary blockchain using a two-way peg which allows tokens to be interchangeable and moved across the chain at a fixed deterministic exchange rate. So, how will the sidechains work with the doggy coins?

This is a technical development (not a new currency) where Dogecoins can be frozen (not burnt) to issue tokens on the Ethereum chain at a 1:1 rate. Those tokens can later be given up (we’re not sure if this will be a burn or a freeze) to get the original Dogecoins back, again at a 1:1 rate (u/rnicolle Reddit, 2018).


Sidechains works like this: On the main chain, tokens will be sent to an address where they’re completely immobilized by custody of an exchange, a multi-sig notary system(i.e. a federation), a voting system, SPV-proofs or a hybrid form of these. Once the immobilization transaction has been confirmed by the custody, a message to the sidechain protocol allows creating a certain amount of tokens on the sidechain. The advantage is that the sidechain protocol can have multiple features like smart contracts or lower transaction fees. Vice versa, after transactions are done on the sidechain, one can immobilize the tokens by sending them to a certain side chain address. Finally, it will be spendable again in the main chain, under the control of whoever last owned them on the sidechain.


Think of it like poker chips; you submit Dogecoins, get chips, use them in a specific context (Ethereum contracts) then return them to get Dogecoins back again. There’s never a change of exchange rate, you get the same number of tokens as you had Dogecoins, and vice-versa (u/rnicolle Reddit, 2018).

Official channels and docs –

Here are the most active channels and repos about the Dogethereum bridge project:
Whitepaper: Using Superblocks to Bridge Dogecoin to Ethereum, published on July 31th, 2018
Github: Dogecoin <-> Ethereum bridge docs

Cuurent Status –

There is a Doge–Eth-Bounty. However, the fund has not increased since 2 years. Not sure if the voting members are still active on this:

The DAO has 8 voting members: Myself, Vitalik (he has 2 votes), Ming (executive director of the foundation), Piper Merrian (Independent developer), Hudson Jameson (Community member souptacular), Ross Nicoll (dogecoin developer) and George Hallam (Foundation and Ethcore) (u/avsa, 2016).

I really hope there will be more money and more development for this super interesting project. Let me know if there’s any news. I would be proud to be the first to blog about updates.

Be aware of the fake project –

A small scammer coin now brings a lot of confusion to the community. They stole the word creation “Dogethereum” and used it for their own PR purposes. They have nothing to do with the Doge Ethereum Bridge project and nothing to do with the Dogecoin core developers.

So that the original project is not confused with the Ethereum hard fork, some fellow shibes suggest calling the DGX/ETH bridge “Shibereum”.
