Elon Musk and Dogecoin co-founder’s duel over Python script

The co-founder of Dogecoin (DOGE), Jackson Palmer, has expressed his resentment towards the world's richest man Elon Musk. The ongoing battle which seems to entertain many in the crypto world, does not seem to have come to an end.

In this quarrel, Palmer, who considers himself the lead coder of DOGE, accuses Musk of not having enough knowledge about coding and doing things as he is told to. 

Apparently, the fight has been over  a Python script that could put a huge dent in Twitter bot activity. Palmer had claimed that he could remove Twitter bots with a simple Python script. Plumber, who seemingly has never been a huge fan of Musk, accused him of not having enough knowledge to even run the code after he had reached out for it. 

“Elon reached out to me to get hold of that script and it became apparent very quickly that he didn’t understand coding as well as he made out.”

In response to this, the fifty-year-old billionaire had said that his code was not any  helpful and wouldn't do any good to Twitter, adding:

“My kids wrote better code when they were 12:”You falsely claimed ur lame snippet of Python gets rid of bots. Ok buddy, then share it with the world …”

Later on, he challenged Palmer to make the script public and open it to greater scandal. Palmer did share the code, four years ago on Github.

 Palmer said that “Musk's popularity is down to the fact that people love grifters and the idea that they might also become a billionaire one day. This is especially true when he interacts with other Twitter users.”

Musk continued on holding the grudge by saying that not a single line of Dogecoin’s codes were written by Palmer. 

The other Dogecoin co-creator, Billy Markus, stated:

"The people after us did exponentially more than either Jackson or I did on the code base. I think I wrote like 20 lines of code and copied the rest."

The statement has apparently relished Musk by replying and calling “humble.”
