Dogecoin Creator Reveals Who Wrote Most of DOGE Code, As Elon Musk Slams Jackson Palmer for Zero Contribution

Billy Markus, the creator of Dogecoin (DOGE), the largest dog-themed meme token, has jokingly teased about who wrote most of the Dogecoin code.

In a tweet a couple of hours ago, Markus wrote, “Q: who wrote most of the dogecoin code? A: bitcoin devs.”

Explaining his statement, Markus said, “They (Bitcoin devs) didn’t make dogecoin, but dogecoin is mostly bitcoin code.”

Elon Musk Slams Dogecoin co-founder Jackson Palmer

Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus founded Dogecoin in 2013. Dogecoin is a proof-of-work (PoW) crypto that was created as a joke based on a popular meme portraying a Shiba Inu, a Japanese breed of dog.

This comes as Tesla CEO Elon Musk intensified his criticism of Dogecoin co-founder Jackson Palmer, saying that the Australian software developer never wrote a single line of Dogecoin code.

Elon Musk wrote, “My kids wrote better code when they were 12 than the nonsense script Jackson sent me. Like I said, if it’s so great, he should share it with the world and make everyone’s experience with Twitter better. If he does, you will see what I mean. Jackson Palmer is a tool… And Palmer always forgets to mention that he never wrote a single line of Dogecoin code.”

Palmer responded with a now-deleted tweet that referred to a Github page of his contributions. Fellow co-founder Billy Markus, attempting to calm heightened emotions, tweeted that neither he nor Palmer contributed much to the project, which was originally supposed to be a joke.

Markus humorously stated, “The people after us did exponentially more than either Jackson or I did on the codebase. I think I wrote like 20 lines of code and copied the rest.”

While Musk continues to slam Palmer for his purported arrogance, Markus keeps getting the billionaire’s praise for being humble:

“You’re humble bro. Billy’s sense of humor & irreverence is a big part of why people love Dogecoin.”
