Dogecoin has now become part of the Big3 basketball league as Bill Lee, founding chairman of MyDoge, a self-custodial Dogecoin wallet, has bought all 25 fire-tier editions of the Aliens, a team in the Big3.
Ice Cube, an American rapper, founded the Big3 professional basketball league, and Big3 chose to sell the team’s rights using non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

“The Doge Army and I look forward to making Dogecoin the people’s currency while helping our team hoist the championship trophy. I can’t think of a better NFT experience than that today,” Bill Lee stated in a release.
