Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer, the cofounders of Dogecoin, have been in the spotlight recently as they express their thoughts on the current decline in the crypto market. In a rare interview, Palmer criticized fellow Dogecoin enthusiast Elon Musk, while Markus, who maintains an online friendship with Musk, continues to actively engage with the crypto community on X app.

Markus recently shared his take on why the crypto market is experiencing a downturn. In a post on X, he questioned the rationality of trading hash strings for thousands of dollars, emphasizing the unpredictable nature of crypto price fluctuations. Despite his association with Dogecoin, Markus holds a preference for Bitcoin and Ethereum, referring to DOGE as 'just Bitcoin in a dog suit.'

However, Markus does not share the same enthusiasm for other cryptocurrencies, particularly ERC-20 tokens built on the Ethereum chain. He also expressed his disdain for the collapsed FTX exchange and its imprisoned founder, Sam Bankman-Fried. In a recent tweet, Markus referred to Bankman-Fried as 'the most famous vegan,' alluding to the challenges the former crypto billionaire has faced in prison, including the denial of a vegan diet and necessary medication for his ADHD.
