Dogecoin is experiencing its moment in the sun this week with the community around the dog-based crypto-currency raising more than $30,000 for the Jamaican bobsled team in less than 48 hours to help them get to the Winder Olympics in Sochi next month.
However the community around Dogecoin has been active since the crypto-currency was launched at the beginning of December and just as the meme on which Dogecoin was based spawned thousands of pieces of fan art, the crypto-currency is no different.
Here we pick 10 of our favourite creations including images based on the Jamaican bobsled team and of course Dogecoin's ambition to get "to the moon."

....others seem to think that it could be help from one of the old Eastern bloc countries which gets them where they want to go:
One of the biggest problems with crypto-currencies is the wild fluctuations they suffer on a daily basis, and Dogecoin is no different, with the market value of the coins jumping $40 million in just 24 hours this week.

Others, though, take a more relaxed attitude to Dogecoin, here playing on the generosity of its community using the character of Fry from Futurama:
Some have even reimagined what the world would look like if Dogecoin ruled Hollywood:
- The Doge of Wall Street
and of course...
Jamaican Dogesled team
Dogecoin and the Jamaican bobseld team seem to be a perfect fit. And now, following the huge fundraising effort on the part of the Dogecoin community, this week, it looks like they have become the Jamican's biggest fans, with this piece of art reflecting that partnership perfectly:
Of course no meme-based effort would be complete without a reference to possibly the biggest meme of all, Nyan Cat. And so here for your viewing pleasure is Nyan Doge
