“If you think of [Crypto] as a house of cards, some of the cards at the bottom of that have started to crumble,” Palmer said on the show.

Why It Matters: Palmer attributed the latest cryptocurrency crash to decentralized finance (DeFi) and its high-interest lending.
On industry regulation, Palmer said that “there are some people who see cryptocurrency as becoming just a more convenient way of doing traditional finance.”
He said regulating cryptocurrencies would erode their value proposition since it’s pretty easy to do the same with electronic banking.
Calling the crash as a “wakeup call” for average investors, Palmer said cryptocurrencies were not different from playing at a “roulette table.”
In a recent tweet, Palmer took a swipe at Marc Andreessen, the co-founder of Andreessen Horowitz, for his comments on the advantages of Web 3.
Palmer, who created DOGE along with Billy Markus in 2013 as a parody has labeled cryptocurrencies as “parasitic.”
He’s also attacked top cryptocurrency backers such as Tesla Inc (: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
