Coins With the Face.

3 min readApr 24, 2024


Watching meme coins rise and rise on the Solana layer made me salute Adam Smith and his “invisible hand” once again.

After staying in crypto for 10 years, I thought I had seen it all, but new, younger, and bolder generations of degens can’t stop astonishing me with their sturdiness and adaptability. The crazed, brainless Boomers high-post in governments and corporations continue to throw shell after shell at them in the form of regulations, registrations, and limitations with the sole purpose of forcing them to live the same dumb and obedient lives their parents lived. However, degens keep inventing new ways to live fast and fully.

Boomers think it’s just a bunch of teens sitting in their mother’s basement, lured by dangerous and mostly foreign strangers into nefarious schemes of printing funny money and pyramid schemes in their way to an undeserved fortune.

Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, if you follow the lifecycle of many meme coins, you can watch the same human dramas developing in new “virtual settings”, but still ruled by the same iron law of “supply and demand”, just as in the slow-moving “business-lives” of Boomers and X-Gens but at a lightning-fast speed.

Take, for example, the story of Slerf ($SLERF) developers who “burned the LP and the tokens that were set aside for the airdrop” while “mint authority was already revoked.” The developer also added, “Guys, I f***** up. There is nothing I can do to fix this. I am so f****** sorry.”

In the Boomer-infested world, it is equivalent to not paying promised dividends to your shareholders because you accidentally burned your bank with an army-issued flamethrower. So, Boomers would sell it. However, the next day, this meme coin did the opposite — it rallied and rallied hard to a market cap of over $400 million with trading volumes on Solana exceeding $3 billion in two days.

You can argue that this is madness, but I say you are wrong. It’s teamwork. A team of thousands of degens read the post and trusted that this developer was just a human prone to mistakes — not a crook, as Boomers would think him to be before publicly crucifying him and sending him off to Sing-Sing or somewhere.

Nope. Those thousands of degens were smart enough to understand in split seconds that this is a real business they are running, and it is in their best interest to keep it going, no matter what happens. So, they bought instead of selling.

If you now start moralizing and saying that these small pieces of code are worthless and “produce nothing,” and that these degens should “find a job” instead of “speculating”, I would kindly remind you that Boomers have managed to build and defend a world that provides those degens — mostly Gen Z — with zero jobs, zero cash, zero equities, zero hope, and the vision of two upcoming apocalypses — Climatic and Thermonuclear.

So, please, keep your opinions to yourself before you understand why degens are in such a hurry to live their lives to the fullest, like billions of beautiful but one-season-only butterflies.
