Dogecoin (DOGE) Unveils Massive Update To Ease Development of the Leading Meme Coin

By Mehron Rokhy

A core developer of popular meme asset Dogecoin (DOGE) is unveiling widespread updates to the blockchain as a means of making development on the protocol easier.

In a new announcement, DOGE developer Michi Lumin tells their 32,000 Twitter followers that many changes are coming to the project, including support for QR codes, other languages, message signing, and Windows builds.


Lumin describes how the upgrade will add language support for both developers and non-developers.

“Libdogecoin now supports generation of seedphrases to and from keys, in many languages. For non-devs, this functionality is available in the included ‘such’ executable as a utility and can be used to generate mnemonic phrases.”

The developer goes on to say that the blockchain will also now be able to support image-generating QR codes as well as message signing.

“Libdogecoin now generates QR codes on the fly in text, jpeg, and png formats without any additional libraries needed. Also functional in the ‘such’ utility. Libdogecoin now supports message+transaction signing and verification.”


Other features include the ability for libdogecoin to be “ready-to-build” once loaded into MS Visual Studio on Windows as well as the ability for developers to query a flag to see if it was built with network functionality or not.

Furthermore, the upgrade includes fixes to many persistent problems developers may have encountered when building on the meme asset, such as memory integrity checks, truncation fixes and length checks for edge cases, according to the developer.

Dogecoin is trading for $0.0746 at time of writing, a 3.5% dip during the last 24 hours.
