Meme (MEME) is a cryptoasset based on a prank. Jordan Lyall, the product director at Consensus, tweeted mocking the rushed, food-themed DeFi projects. Specifically, he describes a project named “The Degenerator” via a picture model, in which the project allows people to start (copy and paste) a new DeFi project within minutes through a drag-and-drop method. He gave the project a name: MEME. A few hours after the tweet, anonymous person(s) actually created the MEME tokens. On that day, MEME’s trading volume reached US$1.2 million, with the lowest price of US$6 and the highest price of US$40. In such a way, MEME, a project formed from a joke, was created. It currently ranks 526th among the total market value of cryptoassets.
