However, there is bad blood between Musk and Doge’s parent company because of the latter’s legal complaint against the Twitter CEO dating back to June this year. 

The contention is the accusation of changing the price of the cryptocurrency at will and following new alleged maneuvers of the entrepreneur, the legal action was implemented on September 6 with new supporting evidence, on top of that according to the judges Dogecoin should be treated in the same way as a security. 

The Securities and Exchange Commission, announced on 8 September this year that in its opinion crypto assets are subject to the laws governing forex securities. 

On 20 January 2023, the US Court will rule on the matter, and both Dogecoin and Elon Musk have hired a pool of lawyers to protect themselves.

Meanwhile, in the prosecution’s docket, the ranks of the disgruntled are growing, and other users harmed by the alleged artificially induced price swings have been included; one user who lost $150,000 trading the currency is just the latest in a long line of investors who felt cheated.

Over time, Axies turn into NFTs that in turn can be trained and traded on the Axie Infinity marketplace.
