After the digital currency Bitcoin slumped over the weekend, fans of the spoof cryptocurrency Dogecoin want to make today, April 20th, Doge Day. 

Bitcoin was trading at more than 56-thousand-600 dollars Monday, down from more than 63-thousand last Thursday. 

Dogecoin was up 24-percent, to 37 cents Monday morning, and fans hope to push the price to 42 cents today. 

That would coincide with today being 4/20, the unofficial holiday celebrating marijuana. 

That's not all the Doge army wants.

Over 140,000 people have signed a petition asking Amazon to accept Dogecoin as a payment method. With all the hype and support it's been getting, it doesn't seem farfetched.
