Dogecoin Co-Creator Warns: Be ‘Realistic’ About Investing In Plentiful Binance, Ethereum Ecosystem Tokens – Benzinga


Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) co-creator Billy Markus has warned against investing in new cryptocurrencies that are “being made every minute” on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) ecosystems.

What Happened: Markus, who goes by the name Shibetoshi Nakamoto on Twitter, said that there is no enough new money going around to support the new tokens.

Reminder: There’s not actually enough new money going around to support all the new bsc / eth tokens being made every minute.

If you’re cool with gambling in a rigged game in hopes for greater fools, you do you, just be realistic.

Research just means understanding the game.

The Dogecoin co-creator also cautioned investors against “accidentally” pumping a BSC token.

How to accidentally pump a bsc token:

– Tweet anything, one exists or will exist for any word you say

Why It Matters: Markus’ comments assume significance as hundreds of new coins based on the Ethereum as well as the BSC blockchains have easily been created in recent times. BSC is cryptocurrency exchange Binance’s own blockchain network. It takes just minutes to create a new cryptocurrency.

This includes the creation of several Dogecoin imitators. Dogecoin is itself an “altcoin,” as cryptocurrencies besides apex cryptocurrency Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) are often referred to.

It was reported in May that a TikToker known as Dre created the Simple Cool Automatic Money (CRYPTO: SCAM) token as a joke and saw it gain a market cap of $70 million within an hour since the launch. Dre had highlighted the ease of deployment on the Binance Smart Chain.

A tweet by CEO Elon Musk on Thursday led to a surge in the price of Baby Doge Coin (CRYPTO: BABYDOGE), a new crypto currency inspired by the Dogecoin fandom.

Musk’s announcement last week that he was naming his pet Shiba Inu dog “Floki” sent the prices of Shiba Inu (CRYPTO: SHIB), Floki (CRYPTO: FLOKI) and other dog-themed coins skyrocketing. Both Floki and Baby Doge Coin are based on the BSC ecosystem.

Price Action: Dogecoin is down 0.9% during the last 24 hours, trading at $0.2413 at press time.
