Dogecoin Network Gets an Update, DOGE Cryptocurrency Becomes More Accessible
The latest developments are driven by the rising “popularity and recent mass adoption” of the 14th largest crypto.
Massive interest in Dogecoin thanks to Tesla CEO Elon Musk showing his love for DOGE time and again has the developers working on the network.
Developers have released a new version of Dogecoin Core 1.14.3, which is defined as “a minor update that includes important performance improvements.”
The update was shared on the Dogecoin subreddit, which has 1.2 million members. The 14th largest coin with a $6.57 billion market cap is currently trading around $0.0512.
The upgrade is “strongly recommended” to everyone to update, which improves synchronization speed. The latest version “significantly improves the speed at which a node can upload blocks by removing expensive integrity checks that were performed each time a block is sent to another node.”
It will also reduce default mempool expiry time by overriding the default time setting of transactions caught in the mempool with the -mempoolexpiry parameter by individual node operators to a value (expressed in hours) that makes the most sense for the use cases the node serves, reads the latest release on Github.
With the popularity of the meme coin, developers are not the only ones working on it. Other developments were seen surrounding the coin’s availability as it can now be accessed via 1,800 ATMs across the US.
Coinflip, a leading Bitcoin ATM provider, has announced support for DOGE. The company co-founder and CEO, Daniel Polotsky, attributed this move to the “popularity and recent mass adoption” of Dogecoin.
