The Dogecoin Foundation has released a major update to its libdogecoin toolset, bringing in several new features and improvements. The announcement was made by developer Michi Lumin on March 23.
Lumin called the update a "big one," revealing that it includes support for BIP39, moon phases, and QR codes. The upgrade also introduces various fixes and improvements aimed at enhancing the overall user experience.
With BIP39 seed support added to libdogecoin, users can now generate secure deterministic wallets with ease. Meanwhile, the addition of moon phase data will allow developers to create applications that are more closely aligned with nature's cycles. QR code support is expected to make transactions even simpler for merchants and consumers alike.
Speaking about the latest update in an interview with our correspondent earlier today, Lumin said:
Dogecoin has been gaining popularity in recent months owing to its meme-inspired branding as well as its low transaction fees compared to other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.
The latest release from the Dogecoin Foundation is likely to further fuel interest in DOGE among developers looking for a fast and affordable way to build blockchain-based apps.
As of writing this article, DogeCoin is trading at $0.055 per coin according CoinMarketCap data , up nearly 500 percent year-to-date (YTD).
