THE ANGELS–(BUSINESS WIRE) – Newegg, one of North America’s leading tech-focused e-retailers, is celebrating #DogeDay today by announcing that the company now accepts Dogecoin as an official payment method on Newegg.com.

To that end, we are pleased to provide Dogecoin fans with an easy way to purchase technology online. ”
