Kubasu will continue to symbolize community spirit and inspire future generations of meme culture.

Kobasu first gained attention in 2010 when Sato posted photos of his dog on his blog. A particular image of Kubasu, showing a suspicious and curious face, quickly went viral and gave birth to the “Dodge” meme.

This single image, along with phrases in broken English font and Comic Sans, became a cornerstone of Internet culture.

In 2013, after Dogecoin was created using Kobasu’s image as the official logo, the fundamental meme gained popularity.

Despite initially being thought of as a joke, Dogecoin has become a popular digital currency responsible for several charitable initiatives, including clean water projects and funding for Jamaica’s Bob the Gun team.

In December 2022, Sato informed the community that Kubasu was in a “dangerous state” from a health perspective, which prompted widespread support from the crypto community.

This includes Dogecoin co-creator Billy Marcus, aka Shibetoshi Nakamoto, asking his followers to send in support, which led to one user X offering to pay him “whatever it takes to make sure that the best treatment to cover “receives”.

Kubasu’s influence on political activities

Kubasu’s influence has even influenced political campaigns, which are central to the meme movement. For example, US President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign announced the hiring of a “meme master”.

According to the official job description, the main task of the role is to manage relationships with digital media companies, podcasts and several meme pages that are distributed on social media platforms.
