Website of the day: Dogeminer
It’s a while since we gave you something completely and utterly pointless. Admittedly, not a long while, but a while nonetheless, and dogeminer.se is just about the most pointless thing we've seen in that while. But that doesn’t mean it’s not fun.
Remember the Doge meme from last year, with pictures of Shiba Inu mutt with a broken English caption?
Well, Dogecoin is an online cryptocurrecy that surfaced not long after and this is where you “mine” them. Or, at least, simulate mining them.
The currency is, of course, worthless (apart from the LOLz), and you tend to see it in social media circles being used as rewards for more memes and banter.
Click the dog and it starts “mining”. Then you can buy more things to help you mine some more. It's pretty much the anti-Bitcoin it’s so easy to amass these things.
Tells you everything you need to know about just how pointless this whole thing is. We did warn you...
