What Is Meme (MEME)?

Meme (MEME) is a non-fungible token (NFT) on the Ethereum blockchain which has become synonymous with the rise of decentralized finance (DeFi).

Launched in August 2020, MEME is a tongue-in-cheek reaction to the rise of the DeFi token trading phenomenon and the multiple boom-and-bust cycles that it has sparked in its short existence.

The project ostensibly has no aim whatsoever other than to exist for its own sake. There is no associated company or business proposition, and MEME’s developers openly state that the token has no intrinsic value.

Who Are the Founders of Meme?

The indirect creator of MEME is Jordan Lyall, product lead for DeFi at Consensys. Lyall created what he called the Degenerator, a joke tool for launching new DeFi projects in minutes.

After posting his work, which poked fun at the ease at which DeFi tokens accrue value based on often dubious premises, the Degenerator itself ended up with its own token from another developer.

Since its launch in mid-August, MEME has grown to hit highs of $1,700 per token. Lyall himself has publicly warned prospective investors via the media not to buy the coin, given that its status was a joke and there was no underlying value proposition.

What Makes Meme Unique?

Perhaps MEME’s most recognizable unique feature is its lack of utility — it exists purely for investors to perform classic DeFi activities, and there is no project behind it to give it innate worth.

As with any meme, however, its popularity has become viral and interaction has therefore only increased. Intrinsic value, as such, is not a genuine consideration for investors.

The appeal of such a satirical project is likely heightened for DeFi investors who have grown used to earning passive income from tokens via yield farming and liquidity mining, regardless of what the tokens themselves are used for.

As such, MEME does not exist to turn a profit for its creator based on anything other than its own existence, and could disintegrate at any moment based purely on traders’ whims.

How Many Meme (MEME) Coins Are There in Circulation?

MEME has a fixed supply of 28,000 tokens, all of which are in circulation. This small supply is what has contributed to its relatively high market cap and token price, which as of September 2020 have peaked at $47.6 million and $1,700 respectively.

Little information is available about the future or any plans regarding the token, but given its status, it is likely that these also are secondary considerations for all parties involved.

For the meantime, activities beyond financial include earning collectible MEME cards for token holders, notionally unique as part of MEME’s status as a non-fungible token (NFT).

How Is the Meme Network Secured?

MEME presents the same basic risks to transacting parties as any smart contract-based platform. Locking up funds in smart contracts, particularly when a project is unaudited, implies an inherent risk of loss or theft.

Mostly, however, security is not as big a risk as the nature of MEME itself, as it lacks a real-world use case beyond satire.

Where Can You Buy Meme (MEME)?

The main trading source for MEME is automated market maker (AMM) Uniswap’s Wrapped Ether (WETH) pair.

Other venues include fellow AMM Balancer, as well as traditional exchanges such as Poloniex and Hotbit.
