Doom from the ’90s Now on Dogecoin Blockchain

Dogecoin (DOGE), the creative and meme-driven cryptocurrency, has incorporated the classic 90s first-person shooter game Doom into its blockchain. Using the Dogecoin Ordinals protocol, or “Doginals,” a developer known as “Mini Doge” inscribed Doom on the Dogecoin blockchain. Players can now access and play the game on their computers or mobile phones through the inscription link. This integration is a celebration of Doom’s 30th anniversary and showcases the versatility of Dogecoin’s blockchain, allowing the hosting of iconic games.

Doom, initially released in 1993, holds nostalgic value as one of the most popular games of its time. Mini Doge emphasized that the free version of Doom inscribed in the Dogecoin network contains nine game levels, avoiding legal issues. The Ordinals protocol, which originated on Bitcoin and later extended to Litecoin, reached Dogecoin through the efforts of DOGE enthusiasts at Doge Labs. This protocol enables users to inscribe various content, including images, videos, and audio, into the blockchains.

The integration of the Ordinals protocol in the Dogecoin blockchain led to a significant milestone on May 18, with the network achieving a new 24-hour transaction record of 1.2 million transactions. This success underscores the growing utility and engagement within the Dogecoin ecosystem. Notably, this follows earlier initiatives where developers inscribed a classic game emulator into the Bitcoin blockchain using the Ordinals protocol, demonstrating the blockchain’s potential to preserve cultural digital artifacts such as classic video games.
