Vitalik Buterin Advocates For Memecoins’ Potential In Crypto Sector, Favors “Good Memecoins”

Decentralized blockchain Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin published an article in his blog discussing memecoins, highlighting their potential positive impact on the cryptocurrency sector.

According to Vitalik Buterin, memecoins supporting public goods, rather than solely benefiting insiders and creators, would be ideal. As an example, he mentioned charity coins, which allocate a significant portion of the token supply or implement ongoing fee mechanisms to support charitable causes, illustrating the potential for alignment between memecoins and positive societal impact.

Additionally, he mentioned that developing on-chain games can have positive implications and should prevail. Organizations such as 0xPARC which supports application research and development on Ethereum and also stands as a creator of Dark Forest and FrogCrypto games serves as a good example.  

Furthermore, referring to one of his personal moral guidelines, Vitalik Buterin emphasized the importance of acknowledging excellence even among groups or individuals one may not favor. He mentioned his lack of enthusiasm for coins named after totalitarian political movements, scams, or schemes that promise short-term excitement but ultimately disappoint in the long run.

Acknowledging the potential for negativity and adverse consequences associated with memecoins, including issues like racism and rugpulls, Vitalik Buterin also highlighted the importance of people’s desire for enjoyment. He expressed a preference for the cryptocurrency sector to align with this inclination, advocating for the development of high-quality, enjoyable projects that contribute positively to the ecosystem and society as a whole.
