On 18 March, Billy Markus, Dogecoin project core developer who is no longer in the Dogecoin project but remains engaged in the crypto community to promote crypto & Dogecoin adoption, shared his stance on Apecoin. 

He wrote on Twitter that he is not fan of such coins, which are dedicated to the NFTs culture. Indirectly Billy tried to hint that such types of coin launching through the NFTs based culture may ruin the concept of NFTs trend. 

“Sorry, I am not a fan of tape coin, mostly because I think it hurts the NFT space to bring in tokens, as token communities are generally hyper toxic and desperate.”

According to Billy, all the coins’ projects needed to spread over hype and over introduction on their activities to push the adoption of the coin. So in this way, NFTs culture may face some significant negative impact. 

Further, through another tweet, he wrote that he doesn’t have any issue if any person does not agree with his statement and also tried to suggest don’t attack on him or on the Dogecoin project because of his personal opinion on  Apecoin. 

Interestingly the majority of the people supported Billy on his point of view on Apecoin.
