(ORDO NEWS) — In a statement, Dogecoin founder Billy Markus asked the Shiba Inu community to leave him alone and said that he is not making any profits from the current SHIB rally.
Dogecoin Founder: “I Have No Affiliation With Shiba Inu (SHIB)!”
In the cryptocurrency market, the contention between supporters of Dogecoin and Shiba Inu continues unabated. As a final development, DOGE founder Billy Markus took the floor. In his statement on Twitter, Markus put a very clear distance between himself and the Shiba Inu cryptocurrency. Markus, the founder of the original prank coin DOGE, which was released in 2013, emphasized that he has no connection with the last rally. The famous software engineer also said that he had to remove the contact form on the website because there were many spam posts by Shiba Inu fans.
The username of Billy Markus’ Twitter account is known as Shibetoshi Nakamoto. When asked by users why his name starts with SHIB, Markus replied: “ Dogecoin is a Shiba Inu. I’ve been using this name for 7.5 years, even before SHIB became a token.”
Let’s explain these words of Markus. The dog used in Dogecoin’s joke-themed images is a Japanese dog breed, the Shiba Inu. This race also inspired the name of the cryptocurrency Shiba Inu (SHIB).
In addition, Dogecoin reached a market cap of over $90 billion at the time. Many early investors in cryptocurrencies became millionaires or even billionaires. A similar picture was observed recently in the Shiba Inu.
However, it should be noted that despite this, the DOGE founder did not earn any profit from the DOGE cryptocurrency he created. In his February statement, Markus announced that he sold all Dogecoin holdings in 2015 after a financially difficult period.
Shiba Inu recently made a big attack, taking over the title of the world’s largest joke coin from DOGE. After that, attacking DOGE bulls took control again. However, the competition between the two cryptocurrencies still continues. Some experts say that joke coins are a kind of bubble and believe that this bubble will eventually burst somehow.
