What Happened: Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) co-founder Billy Markus, popularly known as ‘Shibetoshi Nakamoto’, responded to Saylor’s comment comparing the US dollar and Bitcoin by saying, “Now do over the last 2 years.” This means doing a comparison between USD and BTC over the past two years to see how they have both performed.
