Meme coins have been popular among investors and traders for some time. However, as we move towards greater regulatory compliance in the cryptocurrency industry, exchanges should scrutinize these coins more closely before listing and lending legitimacy to them.
Meme coins often lack the fundamental value and utility that traditional cryptocurrencies have. They are often created as a joke or for the purpose of speculation, rather than serving a real-world use case. This makes them exceptionally volatile and risky for the average consumer.
A recent example of this is the collapse of SafeMoon, a meme coin that faced multiple class-action lawsuits and a drastic collapse in value1. SafeMoon was marketed to be a safer, more profitable investment due to its unique structure that encouraged people to hold, rather than sell. However, its value plummeted following revelations of false statements from the company, which have been the focus of legal complaints.
Exchanges have a responsibility to comply with laws and regulations, but where laws and regulations are still ambiguous, exchanges should champion the best practices.
As we move towards greater regulatory compliance in the cryptocurrency industry, exchanges should take on the mantle of protecting their customers by researching and evaluating whether a listed coin offers any real value. This can involve examining the coin’s underlying technology by reviewing its whitepaper, its source code, and any available technical documentation. By doing so, exchanges can assess the coin’s technical merits and determine whether it has a solid foundation.
