Does bumping the meme coins price have any negative effect on the market? Why?

What might seem meaningless to one person could be the exact opposite to another. To me, the meme coin is not a store of value or a currency, and it has not 'real world' application. So, to me, there is not value in meme coins and I would be concerned about their effect on the market. To others, many others, meme coins provide entertainment, validation, camaraderie and proof of membership in an exclusive club. To those people, meme coins are very valuable. If influencers abuse their reach to inflate the price of a meme coin for their own gain, they should lose the respect of their followers (and lose the followers). They are human, too, so they are more likely just caught up in the same hype we are. The problem is more about the individual who is jumping into a coin that is up 500% in the hopes that it will go up another 500%. We are at the beginning of a huge technological shift which will have a profound impact on the world we live in. The opportunities are everywhere and anyone who gets ahead of this wave has a chance to better their lives. As for effect on market - I think the market will shake off most of the meme coin scams. Maybe a few larger notables will lead to sell offs and maybe even criminal charges. It may seem like a lot more than that if it happens in a bear market and ignites a 25% correction (which was going to happen anyway but no one will say that). I suppose it could look a lot like the ICO bust after the market turned in early 2018.

Why do people follow and invest their money in projects that are meaningless?

I think the main reason is hope. Hope for a big financial gain (going to the Moon!), or hope for an opportunity to grow within a project you believe in (whether on community side or moving onto team side). I also think it is much more than that. As mentioned, there are some very meaningful rewards from being a part of a meme project, or from being a part of any community. Many people have connected in the telegrams of meaningless chats and made some great friends. The project goes on to fail, but the relationships survive and grow, sometimes leading to new opportunities or participation in meaningful new projects. If you lose a little on the token, but received a lot in the form of entertainment, education, friendship and so on from it; you may not have lost as much as it first seems. People forget also that there are many places in the world where joining a meme community might be one of the best chances to improve their lives and the lives of their loved ones. The opportunity to show one's skills or character in a community (before it is meaningless) could be life changing.

What is the future of meme coins?

Bright. Less rug pulls and more decentralized communities with their own coins. I do not see why any group will NOT have a meme coin in the future. This coin will also contain the functions necessary for that group.

Does bumping the meme coins price have any negative effect on the market? Why?

Well for me, the meme coin itself is necessary for cryptocurrency general market capital to boost up. This is because, meme coin gives every dick and Harry an opportunity to bring into the crypto space his or her immediate community thereby expanding awareness and increasing scale of investment as well as understanding and adoption of cryptocurrency. I therefore strongly believe that, when considering positive or negative impact of meme coin to cryptocurrency as a whole, one needs to put in mind the scale of the cryptocurrency general market capital, the number of awareness it's contributing to the crypto space and as well it's highly volatile nature which further express what an actual market connotes. One such perfect example of a meme coin that's doing so great is Shiba Inu, among others like fegtoken, pig and some few others. Ofcourse we can not overlook the downside of meme tokens in terms of the many rugpull and scam project that have come and go or those still in existence. But if we are to condemn meme coin because of the wrong use of cryptocurrency technology by some who lacks the understanding of the purpose of crytocurrency to the world, then we are simply cutting off the lubricating oil from a running engine simply because it looks dirty. Infact, one should consider putting an end to all currency of the world if we are to judge by that standard because all Fiat currencies have in one way or another experience misuse either from government, its agency, citizen or worth a view. Thus as a more resolute way of judging after considering the up and down side to meme coin is that, bumping the meme coin price does not imply a negative impact on the market

Why do people follow and invest their money in projects that are meaningless?

This is because they wanted a quick return on investment which most established coin can't promise in a matter of hours or at most case few days less than a week of investment. As the old saying goes; "people would believe a lie because they wanted it to be true or because they're afraid it might be true" People so desperately wanted meme coin to fulfill all that was promised in its roadmaps and whitepaper and to reap it effect on price changes as quick and as soon as possible. Often times, few have been lucky to buy early into such meme coin and made a massive return, while others were just victim of such investment. People most times seldom look at a good project with prospect because it doesn't tend to their immediate needs. In a capsule way of sending the message across, I'd say; "The World is hungry, so hungry from the faming caused by the old system of currency flow in so a great a way that even a robust bag (whale) could nolonger contain their hunger this in turn leads to greed for some and for others a further starvation as they're yet to even make a break from whatever their national fiat has made of them"

What is the future of meme coins?

Meme coins to an extent may survive as an entity of NFT market. However, instead of seeing any clear future for meme coin I rather see them as an harbinger to the future of cryptocurrency as a whole in terms of their contribution to Adoption and awareness of the crypto - age. Until cryptocurrency is generally accepted and adopted by nations and citizens of the world, meme coin may continue to thrive in the absence of regulations and would in fact help in the development of many Altcoin as well as the general market capital of cryptocurrency as a whole. Most widely sought after token now adays were once regarded as just a meme coin from ethereum, to dogecoin, among others. Thus, meme coin truly would serve as harbinger to the future of Altcoins but would remain likely useful in the NFT market place, but on it's own, it would slowly but surely fade off in the presence of strict rules and regulations.

Yes, in my opinion. Bumping meme coins leads to improper coin ranking, this trend continues, it has even worse impact. People gets this question in mind whether to invest in a meme coin, which can be pumped well one day or to rely on long term projects. At least a portion of the investment goes out of coins with real use cases to these meme coins

Does bumping the meme coins price have any negative effect on the market? Why?

Of course he has it. A lot of people ask me for advice on whether to invest in some new MEME coin. My answer is no, unless they want to gamble. I know a lot of people who recklessly followed FOMO and got stuck on such projects, and lost a lot of money. Of course, some have earned a lot, but there are few of them.

The main problem is FOMO and of course blindly following influencers and “crypto experts” who have their own interests to make money on such naive people.

Most of them will fail and their value will go towards zero. Some of them, however, will be kept alive by their community by finding them useful. Let’s say for use in games.

In short, the future price of any meme coin is strongly based on the community invested in it and the popularity of that coin at any given time. Meme coin communities can help spread news of the coin, get others to invest, and make a coin go viral in order to help drive up the price.

Does bumping the meme coins price have any negative effect on the market? Why?

I don't think these coins effect the market. Just how many of these coins have actually been rug-pulled, soft-rugged or otherwise manipulated is anyone’s guess.Such supposed safeguards aside, people are getting scammed in growing numbers. So far this year, over $2.6 billion has been grabbed, according to Chainalysis, a New York-based blockchain researcher. That figure doesn’t include a giant Ponzi scheme that just came to light in South Africa. Local authorities put the haul at $3.6 billion worth of Bitcoin. Gob-smacking as all of this might sound, these numbers in fact represent a marked decline from 2019, when fraudsters walked away with an estimated $9 billion.

Why do people follow and invest their money in projects that are meaningless?

Big pumps and dumps. But here’s a key difference: the sheer number of people getting hoodwinked. With a few outsize exceptions, most crypto scams seem to be getting smaller. That’s the good news. The bad news is that there are more of them, and more people are getting stung. From 2019 to 2020, the number of victims has jumped 48% to an estimated 7.3 million, a figure approaching the official population of Hong Kong. Between the last three months of 2020 and the first three months of 2021, the number of unique scams rose nearly 18%, to 1,335, according to Chainalysis.

What is the future of meme coins?

I don't see any future for these coins. But these shit coins will remain.Like many new altcoins, meme coins are here to stay. But, the future of any meme coin lies in its ability to foster a strong community, stay culturally relevant, and offer some kind of value for its holders, even simply and funny joke or perceived value.
