Minneapolis Federal Reserve President Neil Kashkari called the meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin a Ponzi scheme in comments to a LinkedIn poll by Coinbase chief legal officer Paul Grewal about the correct pronunciation of the name of the DOGE token.
More than half (57%) of the 1,000 respondents chose the established variant - Do-j [doj]. Twenty-two percent voted for the pronunciation Do-zh [doj]. About the same number (21%) are sure that both variants are correct.
"The correct pronunciation is pon-zi [pon-zi]," Kashkari noted in the comments.
At the time of writing, Dogecoin is trading at $0.26, according to CoinGecko. The mem-cryptocurrency has a capitalisation of $33.7bn.
Recall that in May, billionaire Stanley Druckenmiller criticised Dogecoin and compared the interest in the meme-cryptocurrency to the hype surrounding non-interchangeable tokens.
