Dogecoin’s Jackson Palmer Shares New “XRP Away” Twitter Blocking Script for Ripple’s Spam Team
Jackson Palmer, the creator of Dogecoin, recently extended the ETH scam bot blocker to the most irksome supporters of Ripple. Apparently, he is fed up with the XRP Army, a term that refers to the dedicated Ripple following on Twitter.
His Open Source Script
As a result, he decided to publish his open source script that will block the entire XRP Army on Twitter. This will make it impossible for them to mention a user when it is enabled. He has aptly named the script XRP Away. It is an extension of his script that he developed to fight off ETH scam bots. The script was popularized by Elon Musk, who wanted a solution to the malicious scams that were being run under his tweets.
He said that those who had “XRP” on their profile name, Twitter handle, or bio should not mention him. The script will automatically block them. He added that the signal to noise ratio was already much better.
How it Works
The script will make it possible to get XRP posts even when it is running. However, profiles, which are explicitly XRP, will be blocked. While some are not happy with the XRP Army, the XRP has done better than the entire market in general. This is especially so in the last month when the market has crashed. It is now the second biggest crypto with a $14.78 billion market cap.
The Musk and Palmer Team Effort
A while back, Elon Musk the SpaceX and Tesla CEO decided that he was done with crypto scam bots on his tweets. As a result, he asked Jackson Palmer to help him deal with the issue. The tweets were mimicking popular Twitter accounts and tricking people to send crypto and later get gifts.
Jackson Palmer then replied that he had a simple script to address the issues. He requested Musk to direct message him so they could discuss the issue. Jackson Palmer later tweeted that he had spoken to the head of Twitter and Musk already had the script. He said that Twitter needs to solve the issue.
Twitter handling of the issues is quite wanting this far. However, a recent report suggests that Twitter is already blocking all unverified accounts, which switch their name to Elon Musk. This interaction also helped to raise the profile of Dogecoin. The Dogecoin is working to integrate into the Ethereum network. This will make it possible to use DOGE with smart contracts on Ethereum via a DOGE-backed token.
The coin itself is already quite popular. In fact, it is ranked in the top twenty of the AltDex 100 Index. The index follows the biggest crypto coins in the world. Despite the recent crash of the crypto market, it is nice to see people working to safeguard the sector. This effort and others will eventually help to make crypto a more reliable space where users are not scammed.
