Ever accidentally donate 20 million of anything to a cause? Me neither.
Alex Green, the founder of Moolah, a cryptographic payments platform, can’t say the same. See, in the dogecoin community, there’s an initiative going on that seeks to sponsor NASCAR driver Josh Wise, helping him get into the Sprint Cup Series.
So when Green decided he was going to donate, he decided on 2 million doge. But in an unfortunate turn of events, he accidentally typed in an extra 0 — making his contribution 20 million dogecoin (or about $15,000 USD). Ouch!
Amazingly enough, Green is standing by his donation. He took to Reddit and made the following comment:
Was meant to be 2M… silly keyboard. I will stand by my mistake however! Anybody care to match me? The first person to match at least 10% will receive a hot pass to Talladega :-).
The dogecoin community is widely known in the cryptosphere for their outpouring of support and generosity, so this shouldn’t shock anyone.
Before the Winter Olympics took place, the dogecoin community banded together to fund the Jamaican bobsleigh team, who was struggling financially to make it to the Sochi games. They managed to raise $25,000’s worth, and the team made it to the games. [source: AltCoin Press]
