The recent interview further deepens the existing brawl between Elon Musk and Jackson Palmer. In May, the two traded words on Twitter.

Palmer alleged that Elon Musk has been misleading the general public about having code and programming experience. He allegedly said Musk often turned to him to write some of the basic codes for programming.

Elon Musk’s contribution to the growth of Dogecoin

One cannot sweep the contribution of Elon Musk to the growth of Dogecoin under the rug. In crypto, there is a strong connection between the Tesla boss and the meme coin. Last year, Dogecoin rose to prominence due to a series of tweets and vocal support for the token by Elon Musk. Due to that, the coin gathered a wide range of community members across the crypto space, making Dogecoin one of the most prominent dog-themed tokens.

The attention Dogecoin gathered through the influence of Elon Musk reflected on its developers, including Jackson Palmer. Palmer left Dogecoin in 2015, leaving the crypto space by deleting all his social media accounts. Yet, cryptocurrency Enthusiasts still regard him as a co-founder of the meme coin.

The brawl between Musk and Palmer greeted the crypto space by surprise. Elon Musk is currently a defendant in a $258 billion lawsuit for promoting Dogecoin. The lawsuit alleged that Dogecoin is a Ponzi scheme that has defrauded investors of their funds.
