Dogecoin Hackathon Is Coming Soon?

In other news, Dogecoin’s Twitter account has recently retweeted a thread from Timothy Stebbing, the coin’s Foundation Director, where he asks if DOGE developers would be willing to participate in a Hackathon.

“Calling [email protected]_devs [and aspiring] in the doge ecosystem. I’m trying to get a feel for numbers/feasibility,” the tweet began.

He then posted two pools, one of which he asked if devs would participate for the prize or just for fun. Next, he wanted to know if participants are willing to travel to a certain destination, participate in person, mix with other devs and get to know each other.

No other details have been shared yet.

Meanwhile, co-founder Jackson Palmer has denounced video hosting giant YouTube in a recent tweet berating the latter for failing to crack down on Elon Musk-related scam live streams.

Palmer has managed to receive plenty of scam streams by simply searching the tech billionaire’s name. He then cited a theory where the real reason behind YouTube;’s failure to prevent the issue is that stopping Elon Musk’s scam streams would eventually cut down its ad revenue channels. “That’s just really disheartening if the case,” the Dogecoin co-creator lamented.
