Dogecoin is not a stranger to the spotlight as it has received so many in recent weeks, especially from the reports of mass adoption in relevant sectors. Finally, Dogecoin can be used for church donations, a step into the religious sector.
First Miami Presbyterian Church in Florida recently announced that it would be accepting Dogecoin donations in the future. In its Easter message, the church made this update in response to Elon Musk’s tweet when he wished the dogecoin community Happy Easter.
“Happy Easter! Our church @firstMiamiPres started accepting Doge today! #DogecoinToTheMoon,” Pastor Christopher Benek wrote in a tweet.
It has been a long time coming for the church because the Head Pastor of the Miami Presbyterian Church, Christopher Benek, is a strong Dogecoin supporter. He is also known as Rev. Dr Doge on Twitter.
The church holds both online and in-person services. Furthermore, it has made provisions for people worshipping anywhere to make donations either through Dogecoin or Bitcoin, as it also accepts Bitcoin donations.
Other Churches Influencing the Adoption of Crypto
First Miami Presbyterian Church is not the first to accept church donations in cryptocurrencies. In October 2021, a Mississippi church became the first Southern Baptist Church to accept crypto donations. Currently, the church allows members to donate Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dogecoin.
Notably, the effect of this development will support the positive growth of cryptocurrency adoption. Additionally, as the world economy is jointly looking at a future of digital and cashless policy, the church will have a huge role to play to achieve such a goal.
Recent Development for Dogecoin
Dogecoin has grown in popularity in the crypto market, and it is currently showing people that it is more than a memecoin. Elon Musk has also been the top influencer of the famous token, making it a top choice in the market. Presently, it is at par with top cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum when it comes to adoption.
With the increasing wave of adoption recently, Dogecoin has a strong potential. Furthermore, the team is working on developing DOGE to improve its capacity, such as the efforts to make it a cheaper alternative to Bitcoin.
