Musk sued for promoting Dogecoin

AmkNews.com As we also reported, a US citizen filed a $258 billion lawsuit against Musk. He took Musk legal action for his role in promoting Dogecoin to the public. Several times, the popular tech boss has mentioned Dogecoin on Twitter, where he has a massive following of around 100 million users. Musk’s continued support for Dogecoin has contributed to the massive growth of the cryptocurrency, which peaked at $0.73 early last year.

However, the token’s value has dropped by over 90 percent since it peaked at $0.73. According to the data, DOGE is trading around $0.06 at the time of writing this line. Plaintiff Keith Johnson stated that Musk was instrumental in promoting Dogecoin to the public, a token he described as a “pyramid scheme” in the lawsuit. Johnson said he will represent global Dogecoin investors who have suffered significant losses while investing in the cryptocurrency.

Meanwhile, Johnson’s description of Dogecoin as a pyramid scheme caught the attention of DOGE co-creator Billy Marcus. In a Twitter post yesterday, Marcus wrote, “if people see DOGE as a pyramid scheme”; He said that the same title should be used to describe all financial instruments, including stocks, commodities, and the entire crypto market, among others.
