Dogecoin could be regulated as security soon
Jim Cramer, the host of the CNBC show Mad Money, has suggested that the purpose of Dogecoin is to make money for cryptocurrency exchanges. Cramer believes that Dogecoin is a security and it will be regulated soon.
Cramer is a known critic of cryptocurrencies, confessing that they are “gambling on crowd psychology.”
The Mad Money host urged investors and traders to be cautious when trading the Shiba-Inu-themed cryptocurrency. Cramer tweeted about Dogecoin:
please be careful with Dogecoin...It is a security. It will be regulated. We will find out how many there are and how many are being created each day to make money for the exchanges.— Jim Cramer (@jimcramer) January 20, 2022
Billy Markus, the co-founder of the Shiba-Inu-themed cryptocurrency Dogecoin, responded to Cramer’s thoughts on the memecoin.
bro, please learn how blockchain works. it’s already well known how many there are and how many are created everyday. it is in the public code on the public blockchain, easily viewable by anyone.— Shibetoshi Nakamoto (@BillyM2k) January 20, 2022
Markus asked Cramer to learn about Dogecoin and the way the blockchain works. Dogecoin does not qualify the Howey Test, the U.S. Supreme Court case, to determine whether a transaction qualifies as an investment contract. The proof-of-work memecoin is a cryptocurrency similar to Bitcoin.
Markus explains that Dogecoin is not a security; it is a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. Historically, Cramer has criticized Dogecoin, even at its peak in April 2021.
