Dogecoin Founder Makes Curious AI ‘Killer App’ Prediction
Dogecoin cofounder Billy Markus, known on social media as “Shibetoshi Nakamoto,” took to X/Twitter to share one of his ironic predictions in the technology sphere.
Markus is a regular content creator on X, so he often comments on hyped subjects and topics, beyond cryptocurrency, in his tweets. One of those has been the rapid development of artificial intelligence recently, and today “Shibetoshi Nakamoto” posted a tweet on that.
«Killer app of AI and VR»
Billy Markus tweeted what may be considered an ironic prediction of which app may kill AI (artificial intelligence) and VR (virtual reality) apps in the future. He believes that one of the options here might be an app in which these two will be blended into one, resulting in the emergence of “an AI + VR anime girlfriend.”

Earlier this month, Markus also touched on the topic of AI in a tweet dedicated to New Year’s resolutions. He assumed that with the fast development of OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot and other flagship companies working on their own AI products, people will likely start experimenting with these “virtual assistants” in various spheres. That list included such elements as learning to draw, to code, to write a novel, becoming a lawyer and other options.
This year, Google and Microsoft (which owns OpenAI) have already launched their own AI-based products, and Microsoft is offering a free version of its Copilot for testing. Currently, OpenAI has upgraded the paid version of its ChatGPT to a level where it can already generate images, similar to the Midjourney app.
DOGE creator comments on Bitcoin price dump
Earlier this week, the Dogecoin cofounder issued a tweet of sarcasm and dark irony, commenting on Bitcoin’s recent sharp decline in price. It happened on Jan. 23, when Bitcoin faced a massive liquidation of cryptocurrencies (including BTC) worth $100 million and plunged below the $40,000 level.
Today, the flagship cryptocurrency has managed to recover by 2.24%, regaining the $40,000 level again. Thus, since Tuesday this week, Bitcoin has regained 5.45%, rising from a low of $38,739.
On Jan. 18, Bitcoin reached a local peak of $42,864, but then a 9.72% decline followed as Bitcoin showed high volatility after the ETF approval.
