Bad arguments against Dogecoin

This is actually a fallacy known as the “genetic fallacy.” You can’t discredit or invalidate something merely because of its origins. For example, if I discover a scientific theory in my dreams, that doesn’t by itself mean that the discovery is false or not useful.

And just because something started out as a mere joke, that doesn’t mean it remains a mere joke.
