Dogecoin (DOGE) Reaches New Transaction Highs Amidst Concerns Over Network Bloat

In the realm of social media, formerly known as Twitter, the original meme currency, Shiba Inu (SHIB), has surged to new heights with a staggering 1.9 million transactions within a 24-hour period.

Record-Breaking DOGE Transactions:

DOGE transactions have reached unprecedented levels, marking a significant milestone. However, a concern arises as @Tdogewhisperer reveals that this surge is primarily driven by “images engraved on the blockchain” – Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). The use of engravings often leads to network bloat without practical utility. Many have recommended utilizing the second-layer Dogechain network for these transactions.

Community Divide:

The DOGE community appears divided between those viewing these images as akin to NFTs and those considering them as bloatware or random data. Notably, a user mentioned an exponential increase in the file size that can be transferred on the Dogecoin blockchain, reaching 110 gigabytes. @Tdogewhisperer warns that if this trend continues, it may eventually restrict users from running their private contracts, increasing hosting costs and slowing down the entire network.

Striking a Balance:

As the majority of users perceive DOGE as a currency and use it for transactions rather than file transfers or image registration, maintaining the functionality of the blockchain and ensuring ease of contract hosting becomes crucial.

He emphasized that in El Salvador, where he resides and serves as a Bitcoin advisor to President Nayib Bukele, trading DOGE without being registered as a security is illegal.
