Dogecoin Fans Are Trying To Rig Google’s “One Dollar” Search Results

By Crypto News Bot May 13, 2021 In Crypto News, Dogecoin

A group of Dogecoin (DOGE) fans have launched a bid to influence Google’s search rankings so that a picture of the popular canine cryptocurrency appears whenever someone performs an image search for “one dollar”.

The call was made on a Reddit page with the title: “One Dollar. Interact with this post and image so it will be shown in searches for one dollar.”

The post refers to hopes that Dogecoin will eventually be worth one dollar, in a one-of-a-kind competition between crypto evangelists who would often speculate about Bitcoin replacing the dollar as a global currency.

Worth about 50 cents AUD at the time of writing, Elon Musk’s favourite meme coin is now the fourth largest cryptocurrency and its journey seems definitively moonbound. Yet its astronomical growth does not seem to be enough for some Doge fans.


Is It Working?

The bid to engineer the search results appears to be working. When we searched for “one dollar”, a Dogecoin image was indeed riding high in the rankings.

Despite the recent fluctuations in price, enthusiasm seems to be running high between Doge supporters, with Reddit user comments like “When Tesla accepts Doge, 1 Doge = $35,000, take it or leave it” or “Waiting for Tesla to accept doge since the announcement of Elon’s appearance on SNL…” where he discussed all things DOGE.

On the Reddit page advertising the stunt, users were also talking about Elon Musk’s recent poll in which he asked if Tesla should start accepting the currency. Results are in and almost 80% in favour of DOGE payments, leaving not much room for interpretation of market sentiment.

No one say whether or not Dogecoin will hit the one dollar milestone, or go to the moon – maybe even literally.
