  • Shibetoshi Nakamoto took to X to discuss his X ad revenue paycheck.
  • Dogecoin continues to trade in tight ranges between $0.062 & $0.067.
  • Twitter introduced new features, but Dogecoin’s role in the app is still vague.

Dogecoin founder Billy Markus is wondering why his X revenue payments are dwindling. In a recent tweet, Markus described his X paycheck as “about 1/3rd of what it was compared to the previous two weeks.” The tweet was met with other crypto fans questioning the reasons.

Crypto enthusiast Prestige uttered, “I am offended by your healthy perspective on payouts,” when Markus added that Twitter’s shared revenue payments are just “magic bonus money” to him.


Elon Musk stepped in to give his take on the situation. “Sorry, this should be more stable over time. Revenue share is still very much beta code,” replied the CEO. Billy Markus, a.k.a Shibetoshi Nakamoto, responded: “No worries at all. It’s a huge gift & a blessing.”

Elon Musk Expands Twitter to New Horizons

The shared ad revenue for Twitter Premium users has been made possible due to Twitter’s switch to X. Recently, tech mogul Musk introduced long videos, live videos, and long reads, and he is currently working on audio and video calls.

Despite Musk’s support for the canine crypto, Dogecoin’s role in this new digital ecosystem is yet to be revealed. Meanwhile, DOGE’s price has been immune to the bearish market conditions surrounding the whole crypto market since retracing the Grayscale-ignited Bitcoin bull run to nearly $28,000. Moving up by 0.8% in the last seven days, DOGE has traded at $0.0633 in a linear consolidation phase for the past 24 hours.

On the Flipside

  • According to X rules, only verified Twitter users’ impressions count towards the shared revenue program dividends.

Why This Matters

Twitter is a pro-crypto platform that often is the epicenter of the action in the cryptosphere.
