Billy Markus, known for being one of the creators of Dogecoin, recently launched a spark in the crypto universe, starting an unusual debate between Ethereum and Solana. The American software engineer used the social network X (formerly Twitter) to question which of the two cryptocurrencies would be superior, encouraging friendly and interesting competition between communities.

“Which is better, Solana or Ethereum? My opinion on which is best is the community that gives me the most tips!” said Markus in his post. With a playful approach, he attached two separate crypto wallets for each of the cryptocurrencies, encouraging followers to demonstrate their preference through donations.

This initiative by the founder of Dogecoin sparked a surprise competition between Ethereum and Solana enthusiasts. Within hours, Markus’ wallets registered an impressive amount of cryptocurrencies. The Ethereum wallet received approximately $8,200 in ETH, while the Solana wallet accounted for approximately $2,000 in SOL tokens, evidencing a marked preference for Ethereum in the community.

This event highlighted not only the loyalty of the two cryptocurrencies’ followers, but also the sense of humor and collaborative nature of the crypto community. In addition to the main cryptocurrencies, other altcoins such as Kizuna and Monkeyhaircut were also donated, adding an extra layer of fun and chaos to the experiment.

Currently, the cryptocurrency market is exhibiting remarkable performance, with Ethereum and Solana among the main players. Ethereum, which recently surpassed the $2,200 mark, is on an upward trajectory, trading at $2,280. Solana, on the other hand, has also performed robustly in the decentralized exchange (DEX) and non-fungible token (NFT) market, trading at $115.

Meanwhile, investors remain optimistic, predicting a promising future for altcoins following Bitcoin’s uptrend. Brian Kelly, CEO of BKCM LLC, is one of those predicting a fruitful season for altcoins following Bitcoin’s expected 2024 bull run.
