Important Dogecoin Update Released by Creator of DOGE
Billy Markus, the creator of Dogecoin, has distanced himself from the project and is not actively involved in its current development or direction. In a recent post structured in the format of frequently asked questions, Markus stated that he does not represent Dogecoin and has not touched it for 10 years. He has no professional involvement with Dogecoin, and he emphasised that the coin was created a decade ago to poke fun at the “stupid” cryptocurrency scene at the time. Markus added that he doesn’t care about the success of other coins and tokens but does not like being harassed and attacked for clout. He believes that today’s cryptocurrency scene has become even “stupider,” with people playing poker against each other and trying to dump their bags on one another. Markus’ main concern is the harassment he faces from the Dogecoin community and would like it to stop. The post offers an interesting look into the thoughts of the creator of one of the most well-known and memetic cryptocurrencies, serving as a reminder of the original intent behind Dogecoin, to be a light-hearted parody of the cryptocurrency landscape.
