Kapuso, the Shiba Inu who captured the hearts of millions as the face of the legendary “Doge” meme and the Dogecoin meme, passed away peacefully on May 24. Kapuso was 17 years old.

Kapuso owner Atsuko Sato announced the news in a post on her official blog, expressing her deep gratitude for the love and support she has given Kapuso over the years.

The cryptocurrency community and Kapuso fans expressed their condolences, sharing tributes and some favorite memories of the dog who became an internet legend.

Kapuso’s legacy as the face of cryptocurrency culture – and Dogecoin – will continue to represent the spirit of community and inspire future generations of meme culture.

Kapuso first gained attention in 2010 when Sato posted photos of his adopted dog on his blog. A specific photo of Kapuso, showing her with a skeptical and curious expression, quickly went viral, giving rise to the “Doge” meme.

This single image, accompanied by phrases in broken English and Comic Sans font, has become a cornerstone of Internet culture.

In 2013, the founder meme gained popularity following the creation of Dogecoin, using Kapuso’s image as its official logo.

Although initially intended as a joke, Dogecoin has become a prominent cryptocurrency responsible for many charitable initiatives, including clean water projects and funding the Jamaican bobsleigh team.

In December 2022, Sato informed the community that Kapuso was in a “serious situation” health-wise, sparking massive support from the cryptocurrency community.

This includes Dogecoin co-founder Billy Marcus, also known as Shibitoshi Nakamoto, who asked his followers to send help, leading one X user to offer to cover “all the expenses necessary to ensure that she receives the best treatment.

Kapuso’s influence has even swayed political campaigns and is at the heart of the meme movement, which emerged after President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign announced the appointment of a “meme master.”

According to the official job description, the main task of the position will be to manage relationships with digital media companies, podcasts, and various meme pages spread across social media platforms.
