Biography of Jackson Palmer

Jackson Palmer, a software engineer, co-founded dogecoin in 2013 alongside Billy Markus. This cryptocurrency is recognized as the first "meme coin" and specifically, the first "dog coin". 

In addition to his involvement in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, Jackson has a background in digital marketing, having worked at Adobe for over ten years. 


Palmer is an alumnus of the University of Newcastle in Sydney, Australia, where he studied from 2006 to 2008 and earned a Bachelor of Management degree in Marketing.

Jackson Palmer’s Career

Jackson Palmer began his career at Business Catalyst in February 2009 as a Marketing Analyst, where he managed content and conducted market research for seven months before joining Adobe. His long career at Adobe started with a role as a Product Marketing Specialist, eventually leading to his promotion to Sr. Director of Product Management, Growth & Data Science in December 2021, a position he still holds. 

Parallel to his career, Jackson developed a keen interest in blockchain and cryptocurrency. This interest, combined with his coding skills, eventually led to the creation of Dogecoin, which he co-launched with IBM software engineer Billy Markus on December 6, 2013. Despite its initial conception as a "joke," Dogecoin quickly gained popularity, drawing over a million visitors to its website within the first month. The coin, inspired by the Doge meme, was designed by Palmer, who also purchased the Dogecoin.com domain and created the coin's initial design featuring a Shiba Inu dog and Comic Sans text. 

Markus, on the other hand, developed Dogecoin's protocol, drawing inspiration from existing cryptocurrencies like Luckycoin and Litecoin, which use scrypt technology in their proof-of-work algorithm.

Dogecoin was introduced as a satirical take on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies with ambitious world-changing goals. It quickly gained traction, especially on Reddit, leading to the establishment of a dedicated blog and forum, and at one point, its market value soared to $8 million, ranking it as the seventh-largest digital currency globally.

However, in 2015, Palmer decided to leave the cryptocurrency community and expressed no interest in returning. He grew critical of the cryptocurrency sector, perceiving it as exploitative and primarily serving to benefit its top proponents. In interviews, Palmer has emphasized that Dogecoin was always intended as a joke and remains so, expressing his disillusionment with the cryptocurrency world and his desire for its end, criticizing the notion of making money "off doing nothing".
