Jackson Palmer (co-creator of Dogecoin) was bothered and annoyed when Elon Musk tweeted about sending Dogecoin to the moon (increasing its price).
Palmer stated that he doesn't like to be dragged into any conversations surrounding Dogecoin. You give yourself some perspective; he worked on making Dogecoin for more than eight years and had a lot of attachment to this project. During the start, Dogecoin was a hobby for the Palmer, but now, it is a nuisance at best.
Palmer was an engineer at Adobe, and according to him, he was not surprised when Billionaire started promoting Dogecoin through social media.
He claimed that Elon Musk was close friends with Billy Markus (creator of Dogecoin). Mr. Palmer believes that the original idea behind Dogecoin was to be a currency that is an ally for the people.
In 2021, one of the biggest promoters of Dogecoin was Mr. Musk when he openly tweeted about it. In fact, his single tweet sent Dogecoin to the moon (just like he mentioned in the tweet).
To further increase the hype, Elon Musk even revealed plans surrounding the launch of a satellite dubbed 'Doge-1'. He revealed that Doge-1 would be sent to the moon - This was nothing but a marketing stunt at best!
However, Palmer believes that the association of Musk with Dogecoin is not good for cryptocurrency. He views it as an effort that will absorb the coin into his cult personality of Musk.
When Elon Musk was asked about this whole order and the comments of Palmer, he didn't make any comments.
Similarly, this is also not a new thing that Palmer is talking about against Elon Musk. Earlier, he labeled Elon Musk as a grifter and said that the billionaire couldn't even run a few lines of code.
Currently, there is also a multi-billion dollar lawsuit going on against Elon Musk. The lawsuit states that Elon Musk used his influence and power to manipulate the prices of Dogecoin and thus caused monetary loss.
