One of Dogecoin founders has slammed FTX founder, continuing to show his disaffection to the creator of the collapsed crypto giant.

Billy Markus, who created the original meme coin DOGE together with Jackson Palmer in 2013, is an active X app user who receives income through the monetization feature implemented by its owner Elon Musk. After the collapse of the FTX crypto giant in November 2022, Markus heavily criticized Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF), even when the latter admitted his wrongdoings on TV and apologized to customers and creditors publicly on Twitter.

Now, Markus published a post, saying that 'the most famous vegan is Sam Bankman-Fried.' This comment apparently comes from the fact that SBF, when he was in prison, requested a vegan diet but did not receive it. Nor was he provided with Adderall, which he needs to manage his ADHD (attention deficit hyperactive disorder), according to Guardian.

According to a recent article published by Bloomberg, FTX Group advisers, who are currently managing the bankrupt exchange and striving to pay the funds back to the creditors, are seeking an opportunity to recover the money SBF paid to celebrities to endorse and promote FTX before it sank. Several parties who received substantial payments from Sam Bankman-Fried for FTX promotion have expressed willingness to return the funds so that customers and creditors can receive their compensation.

In an ironic turn of events, the founder of Turkey-based crypto exchange Thodex, Faruk Fatih Ozer, has been sentenced to 11,196 years of imprisonment for fraud and money laundering. The total worth of crypto lost to Thodex by its customers stands at $2.6 billion.
