On Jan. 17, Billy Markus, who co-founded Dogecoin together with Jackson Palmer in 2013 as a parody of Bitcoin, took to Twitter to say that his brainchild (even though Markus is no longer on the project and will never return to coding Doge, according to one of his recent tweets) has grown into something more than simply a joke.
Markus' complaints about Doge critics finds Musk's support
In his tweet, Billy complained that many people in the crypto community still have meltdowns about the fact that Dogecoin appeared as a joke. He insists that by now DOGE is not only a joke crypto but is useful.
The biggest and most influential supporter of Dogecoin, Tesla CEO and centibillionaire Elon Musk, tweeted to support the co-founder of his beloved crypto with a tweet that he already posted before that has become a classic. He wrote: "The most entertaining outcome is the most likely."

DOGE accepted by businesses that are no joke
Recently, several major and small businesses have begun to accept payments in the largest meme cryptocurrency, Dogecoin. Among them is the large U.S. chain of cinemas AMC, gaming behemoth Nexon, Gamestop, as well as the Mark Cuban-owned Dallas Mavericks.
Besides, recently, Tesla has announced that it began to take DOGE payments for some of its merch in the online Tesla Shop.
Doge devs publish the project's first roadmap ever
As reported by U.Today in late December, the Dogecoin Foundation announced the first roadmap in the history of this meme cryptocurrency.
Among its goals are the complete redesign of the Dogecoin.com website and the creation of several projects related to DOGE to boost the coin's adoption. Among them is the deployment of Libdogecoin and GigaWallet.
