Billy Markus, co-creator of the popular meme-inspired cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE), has commented on a statue of the cryptocurrency’s Shiba Inu mascot that was placed in front of the iconic “Charging Bull” sculpture in New York’s financial district.
On social media, Markus acknowledged the Shiba Inu statue is real. Its placement is symbolic, as retail investors have been recently been betting on Dogecoin and other meme-inspired coins. These have often seen their value surge.
Wait, this is real. I saw pictures of this before but I didn't know what I was looking at, but someone actually put a $DOGE statue across from the Wall Street bull in NY.
That's just fantastic. pic.twitter.com/Nepj0GCHck
