Dogecoin Creator, Jackson Palmer, Makes Social Media Accounts Private

Coder behind Dogecoin, Jackson Palmer has officially blocked his Twitter account from public viewing and has since removed crypto related videos reports news outlet, Trust Nodes.

For those unaware of Dogecoin, it is deemed a decentralized, peer-to-peer digital currency that allows users to facilitate money transfers. It was supposedly created as way to poke fun at the sudden rise in cryptocurrencies at the time. What started as an online meme, rose to ultimate popularity as the market capitalization sprung to the billions in a moments time.

As for the reason(s) why Palmer decided this would be the best way to move forward, it seems like he is mainly concerned about impersonators who are using his information and viewpoints to make a living. Jackson Palmer argues that he doesn’t see reason in trying to track down each impersonator, and in doing so, he believes that his admiration for cryptocurrencies would slowly disappear.

Another reason that has been shared for Palmer’s step down from social media stems from various insults that directly make reference to the way he is, and his opinions. It seems like trying to handle said negativity has made it even more difficult for Palmer.

What does he plan to do exactly? Here’s an extract Trust Nodes has shared that comes from Palmer himself:

“My YouTube channel from here on is just going to be about general tech and I’ll post when I feel like it […],” adding that people are less likely to impersonate him given he shares general information.

While the reasons are evident in the case of YouTube, the same doesn’t seem to apply for his Twitter account. Although he did not delete altogether, there are fewer videos on his account than he had before, which may imply the removal of some.

One could assume that negative feedback could have driven Palmer to suppress his opinions.
