“We’re the first ones to get this done,” the Dogepalooza team said of using Dogecoin with Tickets.com. The team noted it took three days of negotiations to get this done but was important to accomplish for the community.
Dogepalooza announced two new strategic partners who are making the festival possible. Endocorp USA helps independent service organizations source endoscopy repair parts. My SocialPulse provides social media sentiments and is “like Google Analytics on steroids and so much more,” according to the Dogepalooza team.
