Dogecoin creator stands up against 'meme coins'

2 min reading

“They’re made by people trying to get rich off of other people trying to get rich,” said Billy Markus, the founder of Dogecoin.

Billy Markus, the creator of the Dogecoin (DOGE), attacked the crypto trolls via a series of tweets, reportedly agitated by the quantity of 'meme coin' spammers filling his Twitter conversations.

Markus describes how DOGE has formed over eight years ago as a real meme mocking "idiotic coins." The creator, though, pointed out that meme coins are no longer memes.“They’re made by people trying to get rich off of other people trying to get rich,” Markus stated.

Markus went on a rant over Binance Smart Chain tokens. These cryptocurrencies, he says, have "made the internet worse in every way." He also stated that he does not mind when people want to wager, but he asked that the spam adverts be removed from his posts. Lastly, he stated that these token advertisements "make the internet less fun."

The messages were seen by many of Markus' over one million Twitter followers, who echoed Markus' frustrations. Tuanskiii1, a Twitter user, characterized the spam adverts as "sickening."

Though the DOGE founder expressed his views clearly, meme coin spammers continued to bombard the thread with meme coin ads.

Dogecoin initially emerged among the 10 leading cryptos in terms of market valuation in January 2021. DOGE is currently trading at $0.11 per token, maintaining its position as one of the top nine cryptos by market capitalization even though a 17% decline on the day, as per data.

Experts recently chose DOGE as a token that might provide a high return on investment in 2022, noting renowned supporters Elon Musk and Mark Cuban.
