Block Climbing podcast: A short history of meme coins


This week, Tegan and Tim explain the history of meme coins and where their value stems from. They also take a look at the United State's historic sanction of a cryptocurrency mixer,, and debate whether the NFT landscape is collapsing.

The world of crypto is rife with meme coins, and a few have even made it big. But where did meme coins come from and why? It all goes back to Dogecoin and unsurprisingly involves Elon Musk.

Elsewhere in the episode Tegan and Tim debate over reports that NFT markets are collapsing and provide an update on the massive 2022 North Korean crypto hack.

Tegan also gets upset when she discovers that the NFT500 and NFT Blue Chips are very real things.
