In celebration of #DogeDay, a leading tech-focused e-retailer in North America, Newegg announced that the company will now accept Dogecoin as an official payment method.

Andrew Choi, Sr. Brand Manager of Newegg said :

“The excitement and momentum around cryptocurrency are undeniable, and the recent surge in Dogecoin value underscores the need to make it easier for customers to make purchases with this popular cryptocurrency,”

He added:

  “We’re committed to making it easy for our customers to shop however works best for them, and that means letting them complete transactions with the payment method that suits them best. To that end, we’re happy to give Dogecoin fans an easy way to shop online for tech.”

Newegg has been crypto-friendly in the past as well. In 2014, the company began to accept Bitcoin for purchases. Prior to the official announcement, the company’s Twitter handle pushed out teasers on the social media platform:

Prior to Newegg, Dallas Mavericks’ Mark Cuban had declared that the NBA team will allow people to pay Dogecoin (DOGE) to buy tickets and merchandise, through a partnership with BitPay.

Speaking to DealBook, Cuban had revealed that he decided to accept payments in DOGE “because we can.” He had previously stated that sometimes in business, “you have to do things that are fun”
