Dogecoin co-founder criticizes Elon Musk

May 30, 2022

Dogecoin co-creator Jackson Palmer said Elon supports dogecoin so he could create a strong loyal fanbase.

Jackson Palmer sees crypto market as hypercapitalism, rentier capitalism, who make money off doing nothing.

In an interview with Australian media platform Crikey, Palmer claimed that Musk does not understand coding as well as he says. 

Palmer had reached out to Musk years ago with a script that would detect crypto scam bots in your mentions.

Commenting on Elon Musk buying Twitter, Palmer said the tech billionaire wants to destroy all trust and drive the social media platform to the ground.

The other Dogecoin creator, Billy Markus, is a known Elon Musk supporter and they both constantly interact on Twitter. 

Elon Musk had earlier tweeted, “He can be a little negative at times tbh.”
