Elon Musk, the great mind and the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX has requested from Jackson Palmer, the creator of Dogecoin (DOGE), to help him fight ‘annoying’ cryptocurrency scammers in a tweet on Monday, September 17.
Musk tweeted: “@ummjackson if you can help get rid of the annoying scam spammers, that would be much appreciated.”
After the tweet, Palmer has responded within 3 minutes, promising to send Musk the script, which could disentangle the problem: “If you DM me (your DMs aren’t open), I’ll send you the script – it’s short, simple and you just run it with cron somewhere.”
After this tweet interaction, Palmer has tweeted an update: “Update: Elon has the script… we had a good chat on how @jack and the Twitter team should definitely automate and fix this problem on their end though.”
In early July, Elon Musk was entertained by scam bots imitating famous individuals on Twitter, also including Musk himself, to steal Ethereum as well as other digital currencies. He tweeted about the incident: “I want to know who is running the Etherium scambots! Mad skillz”
The billionaire CEO is not the only one who has been targeted by scam bots. According to Cointelegraph in January, various scam accounts on Twitter have attempted to imitate the Litecoin founder Charlie Lee.
Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, has recommended that Twitter might use the blockchain technology to struggle misinformation and multiple scams on the platform.
As reported by CoinMarketCap data, Jackson Palmer has got a name-drop from the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, however, Dogecoin’s value and capitalization have stayed stable over the past 24 hours. Early September was a victory for the coin, as DOGE had an important increase since August 30, where the price at one point went up incredibly high, by %135, – just in three days.
