Dogechain Records Positive Milestones Despite Early Controversies

It is surprising to see Dogechain record mind-boggling milestones despite its early controversies. As reported, the Dogechain team reportedly offered a $14 million fix to Dogecoin co-founder Billy Marcus, to promote DC. However, Marcus rejected the offer.  Furthermore, a wallet linked to a Dogechain developer was caught dumping 1 million DC tokens in August. Interestingly, Dogechain has gone beyond these controversies and has continued to record tremendous growth in different aspects.

Earlier this month, Dogechain’s unique wallets surpassed 250k, with over 55 million cumulative transactions recorded on the network, with 1M daily transactions.
