Bezos Follows DOGE Co-creator 

Over the weekend, Amazon.com, Inc AMZN CEO Jeff Bezos created a stir by following DOGE co-creator Billy Markus. The move is significant as Bezos only follows 74 people on Twitter. The Amazon Chair has 4.1 million followers on the platform. Markus has a following of 1.5 million including Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk. 

Bitcoin Potshots Keep Coming

Markus took a potshot at Bitcoin investors yet again by saying if they invested $100 under their mattress 6 months ago, they’d still have $100, but if they put in the same money in Bitcoin they’d only have $50. 

Since the year began, BTC has declined 29.8%, while in the last week alone it has dropped 13.6%. DOGE has fallen 27.1% on a year-to-date basis and 8.2% in the last week.
