Dogecoin Core [DOGE, Ð]


DogecoinBadge MuchWow

Select language: EN | CN

Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, although it does not use SHA256 as its proof of work (POW). Taking development cues from Tenebrix and Litecoin, Dogecoin currently employs a simplified variant of scrypt.


Installation 💻

Please see the installation guide for information about installing Dogecoin Core.

Such ports

Dogecoin Core by default uses port 22556 for peer-to-peer communication that is needed to synchronize the "mainnet" blockchain and stay informed of new transactions and blocks. Additionally, a JSONRPC port can be opened, which defaults to port 22555 for mainnet nodes. It is strongly recommended to not expose RPC ports to the public internet.
