Here’s the Amount of DOGE Held by the Dogecoin Creator
In a recent announcement on Twitter, Billy Markus, one of the co-founders of the popular meme-inspired cryptocurrency Dogecoin, has clarified his current role in the development of the digital currency and the amount of Dogecoin he currently holds.
The announcement came after Markus seemed to grow increasingly frustrated with the constant inquiries about his involvement with Dogecoin. In an effort to put an end to the speculation once and for all, Markus took to Twitter to clear the air.
just another reminder that
– i don’t work on dogecoin, i haven’t for literally 9 years
– i don’t have any affiliation with dogecoin
– i don’t speak for dogecoin
– i own very little dogecoin
don’t tell me how i should represent doge. i don’t, at all. i just represent me.

He revealed that he has not worked on Dogecoin for the past nine years and has no affiliation with the cryptocurrency at present. Additionally, Markus stated that he owns “very little” Dogecoin, emphasizing that he does not represent the currency and should not be told how to do so.
Markus called on the Dogecoin community to stop demanding things from strangers who owe them nothing, stating that they will only be seen as “dumb assholes” for doing so.
Despite Markus’ disassociation with Dogecoin, the cryptocurrency has continued to gain popularity, with even fast food giant Burger King in Paris recently announcing that it would accept Bitcoin payments.
In response, the official Burger King UK Twitter account tweeted “We need Doge,” with some individuals even claiming that they would pay for a meal at Burger King with Dogecoin.
While Markus may no longer have a role in the development of Dogecoin, it is clear that the cryptocurrency still has a dedicated following and continues to make waves in the world of digital finance.
