Jackson Palmer (Developer)

Jackson Palmer is an Australian software engineer and technologist best known for being a founder of Dogecoin, which he created alongside Billy Markus in 2013. [18]


  • Elon Musk often tweets about Dogecoin.

  • Palmer was employed at Adobe when he and Billy Markus launched Dogecoin.


He attended the University of Newcastle (Australia) graduating in 2008 with a degree in marketing. [2]



Palmer spent almost all of his professional career working at Adobe.

After transitioning from Business Catalyst, he was appointed as a product marketing role. [2]


In interviews, Palmer stated that he wanted Dogecoin to draw positive attention to cryptocurrency and to encourage innovations with the technology by making it accessible and appealing to new users.


In 2015, Palmer announced that he would take an extended leave of absence from the cryptocurrency community.

[7] He returned three years later to help educate friends and family members interested in investing in cryptocurrencies.



"A lot of what I do is trying to understand and then measure, qualify this stuff about adoption, and actual decentralization."
