The value of Dogecoin has not stopped growing in the last half of the year, especially linked to the tweets and mentions that Elon Musk has made of it. The dog meme , of the Shiba Inu breed, served as the basis for a cryptocurrency that was created in just two hours and that practically copies Litecoin. Now, an online streaming website uses both cryptocurrency and Netflix based on that name.
The website, called Dogeflix.net , has what you would expect on this type of website, but it also adds some curious things. For example, the web has the option to choose between free movies and series at the top, and just below it has a slider that shows the real-time value of the most popular cryptocurrencies, including Dogecoin. The price is obtained at all times from CoinGecko.
Show the latest movies and series
Below, the platform already offers the contents, where in addition to showing the cover, the name and the year of the film , it shows on the right the note that it has on IMDb. With the series it does the same, where you can also sort by recent, punctuation, popular and genre.
When entering the web, GIFs related to Elon Musk, the Doge meme, or Dogecoin itself are sometimes shown as well, showing how it takes advantage of the cultural phenomenon of the currency to gain popularity and offer pirated content. The portal also allows you to add content as favorites, mark it as seen, and choose between several servers to view it, in addition to activating subtitles . It also offers the trailer of the content before accessing the pirate links.
The website has not received DMCA complaints yet
In addition, the contact email of firstname.lastname@example.org appears at the bottom, which is the secure mail server that many hackers use to operate anonymously. These types of portals usually last a short time, so we will see how long it takes for it to receive a claim before it stops operating. This one has been operating since February, and not only have they not closed it, but it seems that they have not received DMCA complaints either because the website even appears in Google results, something strange for a website related to piracy.
The hacking website is not the only one that has used the name of Dogeflix, as there are other sites that have taken advantage of this name to create scams related to supposed gifts of cryptocurrencies or pyramid scams.
