Plaintiff, Keith Johnson, described Dogecoin as a “ponzi scheme” and accused Musk of intentionally promoting it as a legitimate investment.

The plaintiff argued that the billionaire's promotion of Dogecoin led many people to invest in this coin, which is now more than 90% off compared to an all-time high.

Johnson is seeking $86 billion in damages and $172 billion in losses arising from DOGE transactions since 2019. He also wants Musk to stop promoting cryptocurrencies.
