Ilon Musk criticized Dogecoin co-founder Jackson Palmer for his statements that the Tesla CEO doesn’t understand basic code. The billionaire responded that Palmer’s coding skills are at the level of a child.
Musk’s comments were a response to a recent interview with Palmer in which the Dogecoin creator talked about a script he created to automatically notify about the activity of cryptocurrency bots and fraudulent Twitter accounts.
Spam accounts are a serious problem in the cryptocurrency community, which Musk promised to solve after he bought the platform. Palmer then wrote that Musk didn’t know how to run the code, accordingly, he’s not as smart as everyone thinks.
He’s just very good at pretending to know,” Palmer said. – This is borne out by the promise of Tesla’s self-driving capability.
The CEO responded Tuesday that Palmer’s “lame Python fragment” didn’t help get rid of bots.
My kids at 12 were writing better code than what Jackson sent me,” Musk continued. – Jackson Palmer is an obsolete tool.
Next the creator of the electric car offered Palmer to share the full version of his product with the world, which he did. Less than 2 hours later, Palmer sent a link to GitHub, which was published back in 2018.
In that regard, he added that the code wouldn’t be as effective today because spammers have been using more sophisticated methods over the years.
Palmer is of the same opinion with regard to participants in the crypto industry. Not so long ago he wrote that cryptocurrencies are the spawn of a hypercapitalist system that makes the rich even richer and the poor poorer. And in general, it is a pyramid scheme, the end of which will come sooner or later.
