In a somber turn of events, the internet's beloved Kabosu, known widely as the face behind the viral Doge meme, has passed away. At over 18 years of age, Japanese dog Kabosu's charm not only captured hearts but also inspired the creation of the cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE) in 2013. Initially conceived as a humorous take on digital currencies, Dogecoin's iconic status was cemented by Kabosu's quizzical expression. The meme's popularity soared, transcending its joke origins to become a legitimate and influential cryptocurrency. The success of DOGE paved the way for a new wave of canine-themed digital tokens, including Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Floki (FLOKI), which have collectively carved out a significant niche in the crypto industry. Kabosu's owner, Atsuko Sato, confirmed the sad news in a heartfelt blog post on May 24, marking the end of a chapter that blended internet culture with the burgeoning world of cryptocurrency. #TwitterLogo Funny Memes, Jokes and Tweets Go Viral After Elon Musk Replaces Iconic Bird Logo With 'Doge' Dog Photo!
