Dogecoin co-founder rejects $14,000,000 offer to promote much hyped crypto project Dogechain
The creator of the popular meme token Dogecoin (DOGE) is rejecting a multi-million dollar offer of a digital asset to promote an unofficial offsite crypto project.
Billy Markus, co-founder of dog-themed crypto-assets, has turned down an offer of 10 billion DOGE, worth about $14 million at press time, to promote Dogechain, a project blockchain aims to bridge the gap between Dogecoin and Web3.
Responding to a Twitter user who broke the news, Markus said that "nobody really cares anyway" if he declined the offer to avoid betraying the DOGE community because people just assumed he was. Get rich by creating DOGE or running pump and dump plans. .
As user Vee said,
“Billy was offered 10 billion Dogecoins from Dogechain to promote their project.
That is, at current prices, $14 MILLION.
[Billy Markus] to refuse this large sum to avoid betraying your community is something that deserves our deepest respect. “
Jens Wiechers, a member of the Dogecoin foundation, was quick to point out that Dogechain is an unofficial project that is not affiliated with the popular meme coin or its founders.
” The claim on paid media that Dogecoin launched the test network“Dogechain” is false.
Dogecoin, [Dogecoin developers] or others affiliated with [Dogecoin Foundation] are not be linked to this token in any way.”
Dogechain launched earlier this month as a way for Ethereum (ETH)-based developers to build decentralized finance (DeFi) ), non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and other crypto-related products with DOGE.
“Dogechain presents developers with a platform to build DeFi, GameFi, NFT and other decentralized applications with DOGE as part of its core economic system.
Compatible with EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine), developers on Ethereum and other EVM blockchains can easily build new applications or connect their existing applications to Dogechain without change the original code or learn a new programming language. "
