PEPE, launched in mid-April 2023, is a new entrant in the world of memecoins—a category of cryptocurrencies inspired by internet memes. While some view memecoins as lacking seriousness, there’s no denying the potential they hold for substantial returns on investment. Memecoins, like the popular Dogecoin or Shiba Inu tokens, often gain traction due to endorsements by influencers or prominent figures in the crypto world, such as Elon Musk. Among the plethora of memecoins, our focus here is specifically on $PEPE.
The PEPE token, described by its official Twitter account as the “most memeable memecoin in existence,” was quietly launched on April 17. It draws inspiration from the Pepe the Frog meme, originally created by Matt Furie in 2005. Although the Pepe the Frog meme has seen various associations, including with the alt-right political movement, it’s important to clarify that the PEPE token has no official connection with Furie or the original cartoon character. Like other memecoins, PEPE’s total circulating supply is a nod to cultural in-jokes—in this case, 420 million tokens referencing the “4/20” phrase popular in cannabis culture.
