A new claim has been made about Billy Markus, one of the founders of the joke-themed crypto money project. A Twitter user claimed that DOGE founder Billy Markus recently rejected 10 billion Dogecoins offered for Dogecoin (DOGE) promotion.


Billy was offered to get 10B DC from Dogechain to promote their project.

That is, at the current price, 14 MILLION DOLLARS.

@BillyM2k turning down this much money to avoid betraying your community is worthy of our deepest respect."


The Dogecoin (DOGE) community thinks that with Markus rejecting this offer, he preferred the community, not money. Markus was highly appreciated by the Dogecoin (DOGE) community on social media with this move.

Dogecoin was developed in 2013 as a dog-themed “meme token” to rival Bitcoin. It is known that the developers did not take this attempt seriously at the time, and only made it for "fun".


However, Dogecoin has gathered a large audience behind it on social media with the effect of Elon Musk's posts on Twitter. As a result, developers focused on larger projects. For example, at the beginning of these months, Dogechain, an Ethereum-based DeFi and NFT project, was introduced. With Dogechain, it is aimed to expand the usage areas of Dogecoin.

Disputes between Dogecoin's managers have also been talked about a lot lately. Billy Markus, one of the founding partners of DOGE, had recently blocked another partner, Jackson Palmer, from Twitter.

If we take a look at the price of DOGE, we encounter the following data. The price of the popular meme coin Dogecoin (DOGE) was recorded as $0.06403 at the time of writing, according to CoinGecko data. Dogecoin (DOGE) has a 24-hour trading volume of $234,453,096. DOGE price has increased by 1.3% in the last 24 hours.
