On Sunday (January 19), it was announced that the Jamaican bobsled team will qualify for the Winter Olympics. However, they had a problem, namely a lack of money. One of the team members, Winston Watt, set up a Paypal account to raise the $ 40,000 needed to raise donations. This was followed by Dogeco’s enthusiasts in the Reddit community , who immediately donated large quantities of Dogecoine. In 12 hours, so many fans donated that Dogecoin’s value against Bitcoin increased by 50%. The Dogecoin were converted to Bitcoins and then exchanged for dollars, for a total of nearly $ 30,000. The money was transferred to the account of the bobsled team. This is the first time since 2002 that the Jamaican team has entered the Winter Olympics.
