A socially forwarded meme

WTF do you get when you mix YAM with CryptoKitties? You get $MEME! Meme Protocol was announced by this medium post on 26th August 2020. I thought it was a spam project. Actually none might have taken the project seriously. As per the protocol, instead of farming for yield - DeFi users stake assets to earn limited edition NFTs from some artists in Ethereum. The NFTs are basically memes. Sounds funny? Indeed fun! A meme is supposed to be funny and Meme Protocol aims to be funnier.

How did it start?


$MEME started from this tweet

Jordan Lyall, a ConsenSys developer, was poking fun at the rapid upsurge of DeFi projects on Twitter. His tweet went viral and got 1.4K likes. Then someone turned his joke into a real coin. Yes, a meme coin. Jordon’s idea of ‘Degenerator’ was conceived as Meme Protocol.

”$MEME started from a spontaneous “flash mob” token creation event just minutes after a satirical tweet mocked the YOLO nature of some DeFi development practices.
Then, against all odds (and irony) it evolved into a thriving, passionate community experimenting with DeFi and art.
Meme is a decentralized protocol for farming NFTs. Our “money lego” bricks include: staking, governance, fair distribution, and crypto collectibles.” – Source

The joke coin got a life and it was well-received. The total supply of $MEME is only 28,000 and the current price is $900+. The present market cap is above $25,000,000. $MEME token symbol is pineapple. Yes, $Meme is risky. There would be terrible pumps and dumps but the story is really interesting. Wait! The drama isn’t over yet. The anonymous project airdropped huge no of tokens earlier. One airdrop lot consisted of 350 tokens. The value of 350 tokens is above $300,000 now. Terrible things happen in crypto!

This is so interesting ! But you need some capital to farm it hehe 😉!

Do you know ANY similar project in the making? The NFTs look amazing !

PS: Who did they airdrop the tokens to? Precious LPs?

Alas! I did not get this airdrop. Now, I'm starting my research on similar projects as I expect some more like this. :) The airdrop was done by the team may be some months back.

Keep me updated haha 😂 so we can get rich together 😇

As per the rumours - Instadapp, Gitcoin, Set Protocol may follow $UNI model for their retrospective airdrop.

No incentive to rush now I guess... despite the retrospective airdrop, are these projects “must look 👀 at” as Uniswap was ?

haha yes...Need collaborative research. The crypto space is moving too fast.

Double posting over on Publish0x may help you but it doesn't help HIVE. Not with SEO. It also doesn't enrich my experience as a reader to see the same post in different places. It's hard enough to find good content. No issues with the content itself. Downvoted on both platforms. 👎

It is my content and you are none to instruct me. You are free to downvote as downvoting is democratic right. I'll post my content wherever I want.

I absolutely agree with you on all counts. Perhaps I came across as instructive, but I have no right. You can do as you choose with your content. It's not breaking any rules. It's just not behavior that's healthy for HIVE or perhaps even in your own best interest. But like a good man I know always says.... "Don't listen to me, do your own research".
