Impressed by the simplicity in which Dogecoin is coded and the way Jackson Palmer is paving the success path with his blockchain project, Elon Musk has reached out to Palmer asking him for a solution that could stop the scam spamming’s.
Elon Musk still hunting for scam spamming solution
Elon Musk, like many of other celebrities, has been facing issues with impersonator accounts running “Crypto give away” scams in their names. It has happened to Charlie Lee of Litecoin, Vitalik of Ethereum and the latest addition to this imposter scam asking for cryptocurrency has been with Pope Francis. While Elon Musk has been pretty vocal about it a couple of time he hasn’t yet been able to find a solution.
In February 2018, Elon Musk revealed that he “literally own[ed] zero cryptocurrency,” in an apparent attempt to warn his followers not to interact with fake “Musks” on Twitter. The billionaire also noted that he has reported the issue to Dorsey multiple times to no avail. In July this year again Musk tweeted in connection to crypto scammers on Twitter being impressed by the skills as the keep on resurfacing even after numerous attempts to shut them down.
Recently, a few hours after crypto giveaway scam bots on Twitter targeted the official account of Pope Francis to promote a fake bitcoin giveaway, Elon Musk tweeted about it in a humorous way.
Any chance you can tell us anything about BFR… im willing to pay 200 ETH at this point.

At this point, I want ETH even if it is a scam
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 28, 2018
Incredibly, right after this playful tweet, a fake “Elon Musk” handle soon appeared touting a purported crypto giveaway from the Tesla founder
Being completely harassed by these scambots, Elon’s search for a probable solution took him to Jackson Palmer of Dogecoin, whose blockchain project and token have been in news for all the good reasons recently.
@ummjackson if you can help get rid of the annoying scam spammers, that would be much appreciated
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 17, 2018
Update: Elon has the script… we had a good chat on how @jack and the Twitter team should definitely automate and fix this problem on their end though. 🤷♀️
— Jackson Palmer (@ummjackson) September 17, 2018
Palmer did oblige to Elon Musk’s requested by direct messaging him the solution.
Dogecoin’s simplicity, supportive nature, and effective roadmap may be made Musk go to Jackson
Dogecoin (DOGE), a coin that has been dormant for almost two years has become the investor hotspot. Created jokingly as a tipping and gifting coin four years ago, the coin resurfaced a month ago and has outperformed other coins in the market.
After its launch in 2015, many DOGE enthusiasts thought it will be an all-time hit after supporting the Jamaican team to the winter Olympic Games, supporting several water projects in East Africa and sponsoring John Wise, a NASCAR driver. This created awareness before the coin hype but post that there were no updates taking the coin to dormancy. It has been a couple of months that the coin has resurfaced to give a roadmap. The recent announcement of the Dogethereum Bridge has seen the crypto market focus its attention to the DOGE ecosystem. This announcement that took the coin out of dormancy, surprised many when its price surged by a whopping 150% between 29th August and September 1st moving from $0.003 to $0.007.
With Dogecoin finally becoming active and having a track record of being supportive, might have lead Musk towards Palmer. Hopefully, Musk will find a solution here thus ending his long-term search to get rid of scam bots.
