Dogecoin Co-Founder Billy Markus (also known as Shibetoshi Nakamoto) slammed tokens made on BNB Chain (formerly Binance Smart Chain). He wrote in a tweet that every account mentioning "bscgem" is either a scam bot, a scumbag, "or an idiot."

"there is no such thing as a 'bscgem.' every token on that chain is garbage," Markus wrote. He added: "it's a very easy way to tell a 'project' is very nearly 100% garbage if it has anything to do with that chain."
While it remains unclear what was the reason for the insult, this isn't the first time the Dogecoin Co-Founder goes against the crypto market. In December last year, he said he would never return to work on Dogecoin since developing a crypto project is a "terrible" idea as the "more you do for people, the more entitled they get and worse they treat you."
Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer launched the DOGE cryptocurrency back in 2013 as a way to make fun of bitcoin (EXANTE: Bitcoin) and many other cryptocurrencies. Palmer left the cryptocurrency community in 2015. Markus also parted ways with the project the same year. He said he decided to leave the project as the community started to "strongly shift from one that I was comfortable with."
