In an attempt to challenge the traditional financial system, on May 8, 2021, someplace placed a Shiba Inu statue (DOGE) in front of wall street’s famous charging bull.
Dogecoin creator Billy Markus drew attention to the statue today, expressing surprise over the fact the statue was real and not merely a photoshopped image of Dogecoin’s chosen mascot.
“Wait, this is real,” Markus wrote. “I saw pictures of this before but I didn’t know what I was looking at, but someone actually put a $DOGE statue across from the Wall Street bull in NY. That’s just fantastic.”
A Twitter user who goes by the name Camilo took credit for this awesome act. He placed the DOGE statue on 8th May, just before Elon Musk’s scheduled SNL event.
There is also an address attached that reads “Address: The Moon, Fate Loves Irony, 05/08/21, NYC.” “The moon” refers to Dogecoin’s astronomical 20,700% rise in value over the past year. Meanwhile, “Fate Loves Irony” is a catchphrase often used by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who has played a key role in promoting Dogecoin.
