The transaction fees are low, in the cents.

And the settlement times, while not instant, are fast enough to make Doge really usable for paying things online.

The "per-unit" size of Doge, less than a dollar, is also more appropriate for more casual transactions as compared to, say, a Bitcoin or Ether where each unit is priced in the thousands of dollars. It's just a psychological thing, but it does have an impact.

Like many of the other people interested in decentralization in the early days, Vitalik moved in Bitcoin circles and wrote many articles for @BitcoinMagazine@twitter.com before moving on to Ethereum.

A sentient AI would presumably have vast computing power, but what it wouldn't have is a way to exert that power in the physical realm.

With bitcoin, it became feasible for such an AI to mint and use crypto to pay for stuff, including more computing power for itself!
