SHIB and DOGE Meme Couch Auction
On February 6th, 2023, an iconic sofa belonging to Kabosu – the Japanese guard dog who inspired two popular memecoins Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Dogecoin (DOGE) – will be sold in a live auction hosted by PleasrHouse, the auction arthouse related to PleasrDAO. The 24-hour auction period will be followed by an AMA session with Kabosu’s owner Atsuko Sato.
Own The Doge Movement
The charity movement called Own The Doge was started after Kabosu became ill at the end of 2022. Friends from the DOGE community came together to help improve her health and make sure she recovered completely. As a result of this movement, an NFT of the DOGE Couch was minted for its eventual lucky winner who can also claim it from Kabosu’s owner Atsuko Sato. Additionally, members of the DOGE Army have access to a fractionalized collection of other memes immortalized in Own The DOGE collection.
Couch Meme Contest
PleasrHouse also launched a Couch Meme Contest where 5 winners will receive 3 @ownthedoge pixels ($150). All submissions made for this competition will be showcased during Episode 2 of their platform which will feature Kabosumama and Kabosu themselves!
Dogecoin Gaining Traction
Dogecoin has been gaining major traction lately despite going through a price correction cycle after enjoying weekly bull runs. It currently stands as 9th biggest cryptocurrency globally with its market capitalization having grown from $9.965bn last month to $12.758bn today according to CoinGecko data. At press time it is trading at $0.09222 per coin which is still 27% up since last month when Twitter announced that they are accepting payments via this meme-based coin!
Kabosu’s story has been one full of joy ever since she got adopted by Atsuko Sato many years ago leading her being featured in various memes all around internet world wide! Her couch serves as her legacy which now can be part of someone else’s home thanks to PleasrHouse’s special live auction event taking place next week!
