Tesla CEO Billionaire Elon Musk recently tweeted that he is following Dogecoin (DOGE) co-founder Jackson Palmer, claiming that Palmer tends to be “a little negative” at times.

"Success unlocked," Palmer wrote in response to Musk's words. With these words, Palmer announced that he also joined the people who became the target of Musk.

Australian Jackson Palmer, who founded Dogecoin (DOGE) as a joke with American software engineer Billy Markus in 2013, left the crypto community in 2015, citing the "toxic" crypto culture. Jackson Palmer was particularly critical of the anarcho-libertarian views espoused by crypto advocates.

“I did my best to educate people for a while … but then I realized that nobody really cared about it,” Jackson Palmer said on a recent podcast show.

After Dogecoin (DOGE) recorded massive price gains and became a $90 billion giant in early 2021, Jackson Palmer took to Twitter to share some of his controversial views on the state of the industry.

The Australian software engineer criticized Elon Musk, the strongest supporter of Dogecoin (DOGE), as a "selfish scammer" in a now-deleted Tweet.

Last July, Jackson Palmer became famous after tweeting that the crypto industry was a “cult-like” get-rich-quick scheme controlled by a “powerful cartel” of wealthy individuals.

Contrary to Markus' admiration for Elon Musk, Jackson Palmer continues to be extremely critical of the Tesla CEO. Last month, Palmer criticized the Tesla CEO for aggressively trying to buy Twitter.

Jackson Palmer recently said that Musk tweeted about crypto to broaden his personality complex and boost his ego. “There are a lot of people following Elon Musk just because he pumps cryptocurrencies.”

Dogecoin (DOGE) price hovered around $0.086 at the time of writing, and Dogecoin's (DOGE) 24-hour trading volume was $316,897,447.
