Dogecoin founder admits he took X platform help for Dogecoin 


Billy Markus admitted that he used Twitter as a main platform for the Dogecoin project.

Billy Markus is a co-founder of Dogecoin (Doge). In 2013 he co-founded this coin with the help of his friend Jackson Palmer. Both of these people are not crypto investors, as they are active in other tech & financial sectors. Billy Markus is popularly known as Shibetoshi Nakamoto in the Crypto X (formerly Twitter) community & keeps promoting Dogecoin & crypto. 

During a recent Tweet response, Billy Markus admitted that he only used X platform to tell the crypto community about the Dogecoin project in 2013.

Dogecoin co-founder also confirmed that he used X platform rarely before 2020 but after 2020 he became active only on X platform.

In short, Markus became an active X user in 2020, after the entry of Tesla CEO Elon Musk in the crypto sector.

Musk supported Bitcoin, Dogecoin, & Ethereum as the best crypto assets for investment.

Under the influence of Musk, the Dogecoin trade price surged by several fold in 2021. 

In Q4 2022, the Tesla CEO acquired Twitter for $44.4 billion and then rebranded the platform to X. However “X app” does not sound like a good name over the “Twitter app” title but still, no one can go against Musk’s decision as there are no options.

Yesterday, the Dogecoin co-founder addressed this issue and asked for the point of view of those X users who are not happy with Twitter rebranding & still using the “Twitter app” name, instead of X app.
