Someone Just Put 90s Darling Game DOOM on Dogecoin

The 1993-released DOOM game is now available and stored on the Dogecoin network, thanks to a relatively new protocol that lets developers wholly store large amounts of data on a blockchain.

“Ð is for Doginals! Ð is for DOOM on Dogecoin,” developer @minidogeart, who put the game on Dogecoin, . “Now inscribed on Dogecoin blockchain forever!”

That means the game’s deployment on Doginals fetches all of its gaming data entirely from the data stored on the Dogecoin network. It does not rely on any other sources outside of the network.

The first-person shooter game was among the first computer games that went viral in the 90s. It was deployed on Doginals on its 30th anniversary, @minidogeart.

Since May, developers have been able to put art collections and games on Dogecoin, helping its ecosystem extend beyond a dog-themed meme token using inscription technology.

Inscriptions are digital entries that store images, videos, audio, and text files that store data on the blockchain. Inscriptions are dubbed “Doginals” on Dogecoin – similar to Bitcoin Ordinals – and are a relatively new feature of the blockchain ecosystem.

Transactional activity bumps

Such features can open up flourishing ecosystems on a blockchain, adding to a token’s fundamentals and contributing to an increase in prices on heightened demand. In May, hype for Dogecoin inscriptions bumped transactional volumes on the network to lifetime peaks, leading to a 10% gain in the cryptocurrency’s price.

Transaction activity has cooled in the past month but is seemingly ramping up again. Data shows activity has risen to 420,000 transactions as of Wednesday from 90,000 earlier this month.
