Dogecoin raises $30,000 for Jamaican bobsled team

Just after the Jamaican bobsled team said that they were seeking funding to reach the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Dogecoin enthusiasts have collected over $30,000 worth of their virtual currency to help spearhead the effort.

"Two crowdfunding campaigns have also quickly raised thousands of dollars, with a Crowdtilt campaign approaching $20,000 at the time of writing and an Indiegogo campaign— run by Jamaica's Olympic organization itself — just passing $6,000.

That's around $56,000 altogether; perhaps a small sum for an Olympic team, but enough to get Jamaica's bobsledders to Sochi: they've only been looking for between $40,000 and $80,000."
