Dogecoin co-creator returns to Twitter to curse Elon Musk: “He’s a self-absorbed grifter”
One of Dogecoin’s creators Jackson Palmer briefly resurfaced on Twitter on Thursday night (13) to write what he thinks about Elon Musk: “Reminder: Elon Musk is and always will be a self-absorbed grifter”.
Palmer, who does not use social media, said that he would delete the tweet and deactivated the account again. “Removing this in 1 min as that’s all i have to say and I enjoy the quiet life”.

Jackson Palmer created Dogecoin in 2013 as a joke inspired by the Shiba Inu dog meme, along with his friend Billy Markus, an IBM programmer.
Now the programmer lives an anonymous life in San Francisco, where he works as a product director at Adobe. In 2015 he abandoned the development of Dogecoin, and today he doesn’t even have the asset in his portfolio.
All the noise caused by Elon Musk in the cryptocurrency market in the last few days, was able to make the DOGE creator go back to social networks and join the growing number of people who criticize the billionaire’s attitudes.
On Wednesday (12), Elon Musk announced that Tesla would no longer accept payments with bitcoin for environmental reasons, causing the second biggest daily drop in the cryptocurrency history.
The very next day, the businessman said that he is now working with Dogecoin developers to improve the efficiency of transactions with the currency.
Working with Doge devs to improve system transaction efficiency. Potentially promising.

Earlier in the week, he had asked his 54 million Twitter followers if Tesla should accept DOGE as a payment method.
