Details: Creator of Dogecoin (DOGE) Rejects Job Offer from Elon Musk
The co-founder of Dogecoin, Billy Markus, praised Elon Musk on Twitter, calling him “cool” and defending him from those who criticize the billionaire. While Musk has been a major supporter of Dogecoin, Markus has stated that he has no intention of working for him despite the offer. The likely reason is that Markus likes his current job, and doesn’t see the need to work for Twitter, even under Musk’s leadership. Markus added that Musk only “tolerates” him on Twitter, and they have not met in person.
Recently, Musk announced that he had unblocked everyone from his blacklist on Twitter, except for outright scammers. Markus responded to this tweet with a screenshot of his own blacklist, which shows that he has blacklisted nearly 190,000 people. This suggests that Markus is more protective of his social media accounts than Musk, who has a more laissez-faire approach to social media.
Overall, Markus’ positive attitude toward Musk indicates that the Dogecoin community and the tech billionaire have a good relationship. However, Markus has no interest in working for Musk, opting to keep his current job. Musk’s apparent experiment with unblocking Twitter users also revealed how much social media has become a part of people’s lives, as millions are blocked or blacklisted for various reasons.
