A crossover that is faster and smarter than ever, Dogethereum is based on ethereum engine and began with Dogechain snapshot.  Every Dogecoin holder already has Dogethereum token.

When Dogecoin was introduced in 2013, it was considered a joke coin with an equally funny and adorable meme themed mascot, the Shiba Inu dog. However, over the years, it has managed to become a fairly reliable and trustworthy cryptocurrency with a position among the top 40 altcoins. The low transaction fees and fairly stable price has been two major factors that has lead to the stability of Dogecoin.

Since the digital currencies don’t have a physical presence, smart contracts on platforms like Ethereum function as intermediaries. These smart contract will function as a base for issuing and acquiring DGD tokens from interested people.

There is a provision to lock the DGD tokens and unlock them later to revive the remaining coins. A third party operator will be in charge of validating the smart contract requests to ensure the smooth liquidity flow.
