Jackson Palmer, the Dogecoin founder, was criticized by Elon Musk for making claims that the billionaire doesn’t understand basic programming.
Elon Musk, Tesla chief of SpaceX, took to Twitter to address claims by Jackson Palmer that Musk is unable to program Dogecoin. He claimed that even his children “wrote better code” when they were 12 than Palmer.
An interview with Australian news site Crikey was held earlier this week. Palmer stated that he had contacted Musk via Twitter many years ago after creating a bot to detect and report crypto scams to Twitter.
Palmer claims that Musk asked Palmer how to run the Python script during the exchange, leading him to conclude that Tesla boss “didn’t understand coding as much as he claimed.”
He’s a grifter. He sells visions in the hope that he can deliver what he promises, but he doesn’t know this. Palmer said that he is just very good at pretending to know. “My opinion about him and all billionaires, is that I don’t care very much for them.”
Musk gave a clap for Australia yesterday and didn’t mince words for the programmer.
Musk wrote that his children wrote better code than the Jackson nonsense script he sent him when they were 12. Musk said that if it is so amazing, he should share it to the world, and make Twitter more enjoyable for everyone. You will understand what I mean if he does.
Musk added, “C/C++ is a great choice for tight codes or high performance.”
Dogecoin and crypto – coding
reminded Palmer that he had shared the code to his anti-phishing robot, which was made public in 2018 on GitHub. However, he suggested that the code might not be as effective today because scammers “evolved” their techniques over the years.
Although I didn’t say it was complex, this script worked well in reporting and catching phishing accounts that were less sophisticated. Palmer wrote that they have since refined their strategies.
He also said that he had shared the code with many people and it worked well for them.
Musk did not stop there, however. He continued to question Musk’s involvement in the Dogecoin creator and the meme cryptocurrency that he has been promoting repeatedly.
Musk wrote that Palmer forgets to mention that he has never written a single line in Dogecoin code.
Dogecoin was founded by Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus, two software engineers. It is a joke cryptocurrency that is based on the internet meme of a Shiba Inu puppy.
After Elon Musk tweeted his endorsement of the meme cryptocurrency, it gained popularity. Tesla boss Elon Musk was even referred to as the Doge father. His tweets had a significant impact on Dogecoin prices, driving it to a record $0.67 in May 2021.
