Dogecoin Co-Founder Statement
With a market capitalization of $25 billion, Doge is now the 12th largest cryptocurrency.
On his official Twitter account, Billy Marcus stated that he has approximately 220,000 DOGE and is not working on the Dogecoin project. Still, he is a regular member of the DOGE community.
He also stated that he would not return to the project because the more time he spent, the worse the community treated him.
Marcus also stated that he owes nothing to the crypto community and can discuss whatever he wants.
He also supports those working to improve the crypto space and is dissatisfied with those who aren’t.
Attention in 2021
It isn’t the first time Billy Marcus has mentioned Dogecoin (DOGE) this year. Last January, he tweeted that he left the project seven years ago due to community harassment.
In June, six months later, he tweeted that he had purchased some DOGE after promising eight years ago that he would never repurchase cryptocurrency.
DOGE and cryptocurrency, in general, have had a good year. Although DOGE is currently trading at $0.19, it is down 72 percent from its all-time high of $0.68 in May. However, it is still up +4,000% compared to its price a year ago. Elon Musk had a significant impact on the cryptocurrency’s price movement this year, notably when he appeared on Saturday Night Live discussing Dogecoin. In contrast, cryptocurrency reached its all-time high.
Elon Musk has announced that DOGE will accept as a form of payment for some merchandise at Tesla.
It appears that DOGE is no longer a joke and used to purchase tangible goods; Billy Marcus would not have predicted that DOGE would have progressed this far eight years ago.
