Billy Markus — the co-founder of leading memecoin Dogecoin DOGE that is often referred to by his Shibetoshi Nakamoto pseudonym — has started selling a collection of doge-themed non-fungible tokens.
The last 3 “dream” types of my dreaming doge NFTs have been released.
8 of each type with 88 total editions are in the collection.

Doge-related NFTs have previously appreciated significantly, with one portraying the original 2013 doge meme, featuring the Shiba Inu dog that started it all, reaching a value of $336 million in September 2021.
What Happened: OpenSea — the world’s top NFT marketplace — shows the collection of doge-featuring pixel art images, featured by the NFTs in the Dreaming Doge NFT collection, starting at a price of 0.6 Ethereum ETH (just under $1,800 as of press time). There are eight images featured in the collection, and the most costly one is currently being sold for 1.7 ETH — just under $5,100.
The news follows mid-December 2021 reports that a developer managed to mint an NFT on the Dogecoin blockchain — unlocking new potential for the blockchain.
