What is Own the Doge?
Own the Doge is the official name for the shared ownership of the iconic Doge meme, the internet’s Mona Lisa. The meme was purchased and fractionalized into a governance token, $DOG, by PleasrDAO in September 2021.
The collective value of the doge is split into tokens anyone can buy. Each $DOG token—or piece of the picture!—enables you to do lots of fun things with the doge community! Simply by owning $DOG, you can join the DAOGE, Own the Doge’s internet social club. The DAOGE’s goal?
The DAOGE aims to ‘Do Only Good Everyday’ by facilitating joyful, delightful experiences and donating a shit ton of money to various charities as a side effect of having fun on the internet.

The Doge NFT
Doge grew to prominence in the early 2000's when Atsuko Sato posted 8 photos to her blog of her adopted Shiba Inu, Kabosu. In 2021, Ms. Satō minted the famous photos on Ethereum as NFTs. The most iconic image "Doge", was purchased by PleasrDAO at auction for 1696.9 ETH ($4.8 M at the time), making it the most valuable meme NFT.
The Doge NFT: Own a Piece of Internet History
Yes, this is Doge. The iconic Doge. WOOF! What started off as 'just' an internet meme has worked its way into becoming a cultural phenomenon and a perennial piece of art. Doge, centered around a Shiba Inu dog with suboptimal grammar, has undoubtedly become the most loved meme of the decade.
