The Dogecoin developers announced the resumption of the activities of the Dogecoin Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to develop the ecosystem of this meme cryptocurrency.
The Dogecoin Foundation's advisors included Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin, a longtime associate of Elon Musk and head of his family office Jared Birchell, Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus and developer Max Keller.
The Dogecoin Foundation plans to accelerate the development of Dogecoin by hiring new employees for full-time employment, continue to protect the Dogecoin brand and logo, and introduce new projects for the Dogecoin ecosystem.
We believe Dogecoin deserves the attention of a team of regular contributors who can help carry the burden of these more mundane tasks by supporting the Dogecoin project. The Foundation has prepared a budget and has received expressions of interest from a number of people who can contribute. We aim to create a group of annual sponsors who can cover the Foundation's activities and a small development team. Our initial goal is to secure a three-year budget so that we can recruit a minimum of staff to improve Dogecoin full-time without worrying about keeping our jobs running. - Dogecoin Foundation
