‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Jordan Belford is urging followers to pump his Twitter followers and Dogecoin

Jordan Belford, the infamous penny stock guru, is urging his 422,000 Twitter followers to drive up the prices of Dogecoin and several other Allcoins recently unveiled on Twitter.

If you want the pump, 5 DAYS. I’ll hit 500,000 on May 1, he tweeted, adding tickers for meme currencies Dogecoin (DOGE) and Safemoon (SAFE), as well as U.S. stocks GameStop (GME) and AMC Entertainment (AMC).

If you PUMP
5 DAYS
Give me 500K follow on 5/1 $DOGE #SAFE $AMC $GME

Old habits are hard to break

Belford is notorious for his boiler room scams and management gimmicks in the 90s. In 1999, he pleaded guilty to fraud involving stock market manipulation and spent 22 months in prison.

Since then, he has been a motivational speaker and author. His autobiography, The Wolf of Wall Street, inspired Leonardo DiCaprio’s film adaptation, which has received worldwide attention in both media.

But old habits are hard to unlearn, and while the good old ’90s were all about cheap pennies, the Dogecoin meme coin is now Belford’s focus. Where is my ARMY!!!, reads an enthusiastic tweet.

Belford also mentioned Safemoon, an altcoin with a working capital of $642 trillion and a diluted market cap of $3.5 billion. In recent months, the coin has been heavily promoted on the video streaming app TikTok, and its low price of $0.00000585 has played a part in that.

Loyal Dogecoin Fans

DOGE has gained a lot of popularity in recent months (for good and bad reasons). The approaching use of a membrane, a distortion of a apparatus ($100 buys you several thousand DOGE compared to a small share in Bitcoin or Ethereum) and a support of people like Tesla CEO Elon Musk and erotic star Mia Khalifa have led to a currency being inflated by several thousand percent since 2020.

The coin itself is not actively managed or developed, and has no specific use. That hasn’t stopped it from reaching a market capitalization of $35 billion and becoming the seventh largest crypto-currency.

Meanwhile, reactions to Belford’s tweets were mixed, some pointing out potentially illegal behavior and others encouraging it.

Don’t stop it. I want the second part of the movie.

However, Belford described himself as a non-financial advisor and registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) a few days ago to avoid possible future lawsuits. But if legality worked.
