A twitter account by name of Bruce Fenton calling himself the lead developer at Dogecoin revealed that Elon Musk never contacted Dogecoin team. His tweet since then has attracted both Bitcoin as well Dogecoin supporters and has sparked a controversy.
As lead developer at Doge, I have to say that Elon has never contacted any of us.
We have a development system that we refer to as ossified preserved statefullness. If Elon wants to submit a DIP (DOGE Improvement Proposal) he’s welcome to – but we like the protocol how it is.
