Palmer told CoinDesk that the evening of all things shibe embodies everything positive about the dogecoin community:
An event for every shibe
A number of speakers are set to appear at the convention, billed as the largest dogecoin gathering yet.
Andreas Antonopoulos, the bitcoin evangelist and author of the forthcoming book 'Mastering Bitcoin', will lead a talk entitled 'Currency As A Language: Understanding value in a world of thousands of currency publishers'.
Following the panels, Dogecon SF will break into full-on party mode, with games and events that offer free dogecoins to lucky winners. Said Palmer:
San Francisco's Adam’s Grub Truck will serve refreshments.
Convention highlights dogecoin community
Palmer told CoinDesk that he hopes people who don’t know much about digital currencies attend Dogecon SF, and that one of the successes of dogecoin has been its attraction for those previously unfamiliar with the concept.
Dogecoin enthusiasts have grown steadily in number since the digital currency’s launch. This list includes reddit CEO Yishan Wong.
Earlier this month, a gathering of shibes was held at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles.
