Musk and his DOGE trouble
Notably, Twitter changed the symbol to DOGE days after Elon Musk’s lawyers asked a US judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed against him with regard to the memecoin. A Dogecoin investor alleged that the billionaire ran a pyramid scheme to promote and manipulate the cryptocurrency. The lawsuit also extends to Musk’s electronic car manufacturing firm – Tesla, his space tourism firm – SpaceX, and other platforms.
The investor claims that Musk and his entities profited billions of dollars from Dogecoin at the expense of investors. This was because the coin’s price was mainly driven by marketing. As a result, the investor is seeking $258 billion in damages. However, Musk’s legal team wants to dismiss this lawsuit claiming that there was “nothing unlawful about tweeting words of support for, or funny pictures about, a legitimate cryptocurrency that continues to hold a market cap of nearly $10 billion.”
