According to Jackson Palmer, the crypto industry is not decentralized but is run by a rich man cartel.
Dogecoin co-founder Jackson Palmer criticized the cryptocurrency on Twitter, calling it the worst part of the capitalist system. According to Palmer, this technology was created with the aim of increasing the welfare of its supporters through tax evasion, lack of regulatory oversight and artificial scarcity. Also, the altcoin developer denied the assertion about the decentralization of digital assets and stated that the cryptoindustry is run by a cartel of rich people.
Palmer added that digital money made the speculation funnel more effective for those at the top and less secure for the vulnerable.
“Lost your wallet password? Your fault. Fall victim to a scam? Your fault. Are billionaires manipulating the markets? They are geniuses, ”Palmer said.
In 2013, Palmer jokingly created Dogecoin, later Billy Marcus joined the developer. In 2015, Palmer left the project due to the toxicity of cryptocurrencies. In 2018, the developer reported that he had not made any profit from the development of Dogecoin.
Dogecoin hit an all-time high of $ 0.73 in May 2021. Altcoin is up 18,150% since January. The digital coin has been repeatedly mentioned in his tweets by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. In one of the publications, the businessman called the advantages of Dogecoin over Bitcoin and Ethereum. As of July 15, Dogecoin price is $ 0.19 (down 74% from the high).
