Is this the new rise of the meme coins? It seems we've run out of innovation lately and I see 3 or 4 new meme and supposed amusing reasons to create a CC.

Not bad I guess perhaps the general public will be drawn in through fun and cool factor. Who's on pepe train? Not me sadly should have listened but thought it looked like a load of junk. Where will it stop? 2M 5M higher or crash to zero in a couple of weeks.

What annoys me is that people are jumping on these meme coins and driving their price through the roof instead of actually supporting coins that have something new to offer.

But what are those coins that have something new to offer?

We've had the same damn coins for a while, there is nothing new under the sun. Maybe Byteball is interesting with the DAG technology thing, but since they gave free coins in the distribution to BTC holders, the dump was guaranteed.

In any case, meme coins have short lived pumps that disappear quick, it's too hard to profit from them and you risk holding an stagnating bag of shit.

can someone link me all those new meme coin i can't see any in the anouncement

What annoys me is that people are jumping on these meme coins and driving their price through the roof instead of actually supporting coins that have something new to offer.

i see there is no real innovation on all the shitcoin in the altsection, all the new coin are ico like lisk and iconomi, they are based on the same project of ethereum with smartcontract, what is the difference exactly?

So much innovation  Roll Eyes

Either it's pointless crap that amounts to a coin gimmick.. or worse..
A pointless "one day" gimmick.. that will one day be created (once you pay enough ICO funds)
Then the one day after that it will get mass world wide adoption of course.
Like what ?
I dunno how about a Block Chain Blogging platform called Steem or Internet chain thingy like BlockNET ?

All those that make coins pander to greedy brats with the attention span of a sack of rocks.
And worse is the "long con" bag hodlers like that reject from Ethereum named Minecache.
The manic kool-aid drinker crowd (see Monero shill's for more examples)

Reminds me of Prime Coin.
Yup a coin that did something scientifically useful (to some extent)
Of course there was a surge for all the early adopters to get on the train.
Then they got bored when the process meant profits died down.. then the dumping occurred.

I see a tornado at work.. a system that will work how it works.
If anything i'd like to see us focus on currencies.. not alternative uses for block-chain tokens things.

Are you talking about the rare pepecash? This is supported by some of the bitcoin maximalists because they think it is fun and because it is created in Counterparty. Making a profit out of this from the pump is of course also one of the main reasons they are hypring this. Many people had this for free some have been given millions of pepecash. The bitcoin maximalists who are holding pepecash to sell high are the biggest hypocrites of all.

@bbc.reporter
Hmm well, i guess there is that.

Here i just thought it was greedy brats and the usual market manipulators at work again.

Also i heard nothing of this new popularity going on.
I see the OP pointing out some market activity and since i don't watch coin prices i wouldn't have noticed unless he came here and told us.
So... i think you are all reading far too much into a shitcoin pump seen on Polo etc.

Greed and envy plays a big factor and it is part of their motivation,they have seen new clone coins with no usage and features getting a lot of traders and success so why not create one like this,until people patronizing this clone coin,we'll still have a lot of these in the coming days.

Is this the new rise of the meme coins? It seems we've run out of innovation lately and I see 3 or 4 new meme and supposed amusing reasons to create a CC.

memes have always been there, the biggest one was Doge and ever since then, there were many more that i have seen here and there with so many different and stupid names. and none of them live to see the light of day for long.

Not bad I guess perhaps the general public will be drawn in through fun and cool factor. Who's on pepe train? Not me sadly should have listened but thought it looked like a load of junk. Where will it stop? 2M 5M higher or crash to zero in a couple of weeks.

i doubt that.
because mostly people who already know about bitcoin and altcoins after bitcoin will find out about these memcoins! and someone who is unaware of cryptocurrencies in general will never even hear their names unless it is something as big as Dogecoin and that still have a small chance.

and right now coins like pep are in the hype mode and are getting pumped , the chances for these coins to stay around for long are so slim!

p.s. i missed the train too Sad since it is not listed on any valid exchange!

I think people forget just how many scrypt meme clone coins came out during the launch time period of Doge coin.

LOTS !

There was no reason why Kitteh coin or some other could not have taken off instead.



A key part of the history of Doge was the context of it's launch.
The crypto user demographic started to swing hard with a younger age in late 2013.
I base that assertion on 2 things the general across the internet activity and the forum here.

What i seen on all the regular non-crypto web sites across the web was a sudden and intense spam campaign by people acting like deceitful lying children.. spamming hard that Doge is just about to dethrone Bitcoin so get on the train now so you don't miss out.. while speaking in lots of "Doge speak" of course.
Deceitful because they either knew that was a lie or had no real reason to think so.
It was a massive facade.. simply to lure in more coin buyers into the meme-pyramid scheme token system.

It worked too !

This board was flooded by kids.
They treated this board like 4chan and would drop name calling and lame jpeg's non stop.
This proves it.. Re: Why Doge coin is bad
Do take note the Bobsled team got 10k in Doge coin donations and they forgot to mention Doge in the media at all when they finished last in the Olympics.

So they tried a Nascar paint job for 1 race for $45,000.00 which i am sure Trailer Trash around the globe were fumbling over themselves to "invest" in Doge coins wonderful trolling brat idiot "community"
..what else would they be investing in ? The stolen tech from Litecoin etc ?

You will also notice all of those idiots and mostly noob accounts are long silent.
I put each and every one of them in their place for 55 pages and called the exact day of Doge's demise.
I posted a jpeg from Cryptsy showing the price arc and said i am calling it.. here and now it goes down !
And it did !
I explained why too Wink
Profits.
Mining and dumping profitability had reached par or was less than many other newer coins.
So... the exodus had begun.

Later the main dev of Doge coin announced publicly he was leaving the project because of a lack of community support.
As i predicted on that topic i just linked to as well.

I said all along from the early Doge ANN topic on.. that the community was a charade.
It was simply a lot of people jumping on Doge to *try* and make money off it.
Which sure as hell does not constitute a community in my books.

Some people invest wisely.. some are here throwing their money away.
Want to know what a good investment is ? Avoid this forum and Google it.

The people pumping the rare pepecash will disagree that the coin has no use. There are articles online that some pepe will be collector's items like the Satoshi rare pepe. I have no problem with this. My problem is it is supported by some of the bitcoin maximalists that keep saying to avoid altcoins because they are a scam. That says a lot about how big the hypocrisy is here.

I agree bbc.reporter been saying that for ages.
Why ? Because new users coming here really don't grasp the magnitude of it all.
They heard scam.. and think oh yeah yeah.. and they carry on desperate.. for ROI'z.

And the BTC guys ? Yeah i think you are right.
Most i think are full of hot dumpster fire shit.

Where do you all think all this large BTC comes from in ALT's ?

We don't have a scene that is looking for a bright future.
We have a majority in control steering the boat for short term profits.. off of anything.
When steering it in a bad direction it will go down like the titanic.
The warning signs were ignored for a good decade before the world recession way back.
Greenspan's own board members kept begging the guy to do something as they seen the ice berg coming.
He just kept cawing like a crow that the scene won't let it destroy itself.
He was dead wrong and admitted it later too !

And this crap is far worse.

I have often felt sorry for the idiot bag hodlers here who long con their coins.
Pick a coin any coin and you will see the long term bag holders desperate and too stubborn to give up.
Altcoins a sound investment ?
Uhhmmm yeah sure  Cheesy

@Spoetnik. I can understand where you stand on the matter and I respect it. My personal stance on the matter is open. I know almost all of them are scams and there are only a small portion of them that is trying to build something. Do I think some of them will be successful? No. I have not seen one cryptocoin that made me think it will be a good complement or a good competitor versus bitcoin. But the developers are free to try to create one.
