The Doge meme started with Sato sharing photos of Kabosu, her adopted female Shiba Inu dog, on Feb. 23, 2010.

Her photo became viral several months later after it was shared on Reddit in October 2010.

The meme later inspired programmers Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer to create a Bitcoin parody called "Dogecoin" in 2013. Fast-forward to 2021, the meme cryptocurrency reached a market cap of $90 billion after being actively shilled by Tesla CEO Elon Musk and his army of hodlers. Its current market value is roughly $47 billion.
