What Is A Kernel?
The kernel is a piece of software that is at the core of an operating system. It usually has complete control over all of the server systems. It is normally the first program loaded after the bootloader has completed its tasks. The kernel then handles the rest of the start-up tasks as well as i/o requests from the system’s software. It then translates those requests into hardware instructions for the CPU (central processing unit).

Dogecoin (Ɖ) is one of the many open-source cryptocurrencies that has penetrated the post-Bitcoin marketplace. As of February 2014, Dogecoin rates fifth (5th) in market capitalization among Bitcoin, Litecoin, and all other cryptocurrencies (source
). This particular coin’s name is based on the “doge” meme
, a slang term for “dog”.
Dogecoin is a fork of LiteCoin (presently third in market capitalization) and is based on the scrypt
cryptographic algorithm, instead of being SHA-2-based like Bitcoin. The fact that Dogecoin is scrypt-based means that you can still actually mine Dogecoin with your Graphics Card or CPU (or Liquid Web server).
