Jackson Palmer, the co-creator of Dogecoin (DOGE) has never been shy about asserting his anti-crypto stance. This time, he reaffirms his contempt for the digital asset industry. He is indeed very interested in the case of Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, and other personalities.
In a recent interview he gave to Business InsiderJackson Palmer said that all major investors, including billionaire Cuban, who believe in cryptos believe in a chimera. According to him, they are interested in this sector “stupid because of the promise of great benefits” that they will never have.
More concretely, when he speaks of Cuban, Mr. Palmer states that he has been tricked into believing in NFTs and digital assets. And, according to him, Cuban does not receive any payment for promoting digital currencies. He does it just because he would have suffered a brainwashing. “Cuban was kind of brainwashed into believing that these things are the future. »suggests Jackson Palmer.
If he is today against the world of cryptocurrencies, Mr. Palmer has not always had this position. Indeed, he and Billy Marcus both created Dogecoin. Although it is true that it was a cryptocurrency thought to be a parody of others, the fact remains that its popularity has exploded over the years.
Andreessen and Chris Dixon allegedly crypto scammers
DOGE is a digital asset that enjoys the support of several personalities, including Elon Musk. The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, however, is among those most criticized by Jackson Palmer. The latter has addressed criticism against Mr. Musk by claiming that he is a ” crook trying to sabotage Twitter. » He also claimed that Musk lacks the ability to do any simple coding.
Cuban and Elon Musk aren’t the only ones in Mr. Palmer’s sights. He also claimed that Andreessen and Chris Dixon set up ” some kind of scam » by financing the cryptocurrency industry. “It’s more of a scam for me because they see it as an ongoing way to gain profit. They want to have control or have ownership or a big stake in this kind of extractive and shady cryptocurrency system,” Palmer said.
As a reminder, Chris Dixon and Andreessen are general partners of Andreesen Horowitz, one of the biggest companies in the cryptocurrency industry.
Once again, Jackson Palmer did not shy away from vehemently criticizing players in the crypto industry. He targeted a few and claimed that they are either scammers or people who are brainwashed with fictitious promises of earnings.
