The Dogecoin community have created a petition on the portal Change.org in which he asks the head of the largest online retailer Amazon Jeff Bezos add to the trading platform support for this once created “for fun” cryptocurrency.
“Amazon.com being a leader in innovation need to accept Dogecoin as payment. Dogecoin — a fast, cheap and stable cryptocurrency. It is stable in its price, has the lowest fees among the largest cryptocurrency, has a large amount of minted coins and has a very large and active community, and continues its development”, — said the author of the petition of mark E.
He also stressed that many small companies and charitable organizations have already implemented support for Dogecoin.
At the time of publication, the petition has already gathered more than 9 thousand signatures. The old petition on the use of Dogecoin when paying for apps and other content in Google Play, it has collected only 1 463 signatures. Another active petition for the listing of the DOGE on the largest cryptocurrency exchanges have gathered 2,700 signatures.
Note that Amazon takes 83 place in the Forbes ranking among the largest companies in the world. At the moment, this marketplace does not accept any cryptocurrency as means of payment.
Previous petitions to support the Amazon bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have not reached the goal and were ignored by the company.
The argument of the author of the petition about the “stability of prices” DOGE, however, risks losing his strength after last week the price of cryptocurrency on the news about the launch of smart contracts Dogethereum a few days rose more than 150%, and on Sunday went down sharply.
At the time of publication the average rate DOGE was 0.00000073 BTC ($0.005241).

Then users have suggested that the domains were registered to protect clients from phishing attacks.
