Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus expressed that he is fed up with the Shiba Inu community and wants it not to bother him. For his part, a debate ensued between Markus, Musk and the senatorial candidate Bray.
The war between the communities of the two biggest cryptocurrency doggy memes, Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, keep going.
Now the co-founder of Dogecoin, Billy Markus, posted a tweet to definitively distance himself from cryptocurrency Shiba Inu, because he says he is tired
Markus, who co-founded Doge, the original doggy meme coin in 2013, has emphasized that it has nothing to do with Shiba, even though it recently surpassed it in the capitalization market (although now Doge He overcame it again, as can be seen in Crypto markets).
In this regard, the software engineer claims that he had to delete a contact form from his website because it was flooded with spam messages from the army Shiba Inu.
Thus he said:
By the way, I have nothing to do with the SHIB project. I did Dogecoin 8 years ago and I have hardly anything to do with Dogecoin.
I removed the contact form from my website because I was getting spam with people from the SHIB community yelling at me about their token.
Do not do that.
BTW, I have nothing to do with the SHIB project. I made dogecoin 8 years ago and barely have anything to do with dogecoin.
I removed the contact form from my website as it was getting spammed with people from SHIB community screaming at me about their token.
Don’t do that.

As we can see, it even recognizes that it is not mounted on top of Doge.
Markus sold everything
UToday remember that Dogecoin reached a market capitalization of over $ 90 billion, making some of its early users extremely wealthy. However, its co-founders didn’t make fortunes off the meme coin craze they spawned.
In February of this year, Markus revealed that he had sold his stash of Dogecoin in 2015 to buy a Honda Civic used after losing your job and having financial problems.
For his part, Australian software engineer Jackson Palmer, who co-founded the meme coin together with Markus, decided to completely break ties with Dogecoin and the crypto community in general.
In a thread of Twitter biting that went viral in July, Palmer wrote that the industry is controlled by “A powerful poster” wealthy individuals and its sole purpose is to extract money from financially desperate and naive individuals.
In may when Dogecoin was at the peak of his popularity, Palmer criticized Musk as “A self-absorbed con man.”
Musk responds to Markus
Markus, who is a 38-year-old programmer, is still committed to the community Doge on Twitter where you sign as “Shibetoshi Nakamoto”, despite not having participation in the project as such. His account has almost 690 thousand followers, including CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, who he talks to frequently.
Incidentally, Musk supported in a tweet another comment made by Markus yesterday about crypto.
The hype doesn’t last, and it attracts people who get rich quick and who retire once they get their thing and / or when a new kick and cymbal appears.
If you want something to actually be worth more than it is currently worth, add lasting value to it. The hype adds nothing.

And he added, in a following tweet:
“You can distinguish the” fast rich “of low quality by what they emit
– anyone who requires others to “pump” their token
– anyone who blames other people for their own financial decisions
– anyone who attacks people at random because their random investment is going well, or badly ”.
The CEO of Tesla replied to the twett with a “Hype ^ Hype “, or bombobombo. The ^ sign in math means that “The proposition A ∧ B is true if A and B are both true; otherwise it is false ”.
Some have interpreted this as support, but it would rather seem like a joke, because in fact, for much of the crypto community, Musk is a creator precisely of hype, especially with crypto DOGE, of which it has been responsible for its high prices and also for its falls.
Shannon Bray, a candidate for the United States Senate, is one of the people who believes that. Commenting on the above-mentioned Elon Musk tweet, Bray accused both Elon and his mother, Maye Musk, of generating hype (and that the Doge that he had acquired fell in price). Billy Markus came out in support of Musk, tweeting that Bray is demonstrating to the electorate his inability to be responsible for their own investment decisions.
Other commenters on the thread admitted that Dogecoin fell after Elon Musk made an appearance on the show Saturday night Live in June.
Anyway, a whole dog fight.
