2024-05-31 08:26:07

In our commitment to continually broaden our offerings, we are introducing a new project addition - POPCAT

This article provides you with a comprehensive overview of the POPCAT project, its native token, tokenomics, functionalities, and its potential impact on the crypto ecosystem.

What is POPCAT?

POPCAT is a meme coin on Solana whose origins can be traced back to late 2020. The words Pop and Cat refer to a series of videos showcasing two images of a cat named 'Oatmeal'. In one image, the cat has its mouth closed and in the other it has its mouth open. The second image is edited to give its mouth a wide 'O' shape.

As with many meme coins, the memes are meant to be funny and playful. Video memes feature captivating background music. The cat memes often attract high engagement on the project’s social media pages.

Key Features of POPCAT

  • Immutable: POPCAT is immutable, critical for maintaining the integrity of the transactions and ensuring trust in the system
  • Community Owned: The project is 100% community-owned. 
  • Vibrant Community: POPCAT has a vibrant community on Twitter and Telegram.
  • POPCAT Click: A webpage featuring two games, Maxwell Cat World and Spinning Rat, as well as a merchandise store.

Overview of POPCAT

POPCAT is the native cryptocurrency of the POPCAT project. The project had been virtually dormant with little trading activity over much of 2021 through to late 2023. In December 2023, the original developers planned to launch and NFT series needed support from the community to bring this vision to fruition. However, there was a disagreement regarding the exact manner this would be achieved. Consequently, the Dev sought to bring the project to an end. However, following intervention by a community member the project remains alive. The member who goes by the Twitter handle @jpeggler paid 35,000 USDC for the rights to the update authority and the socials.


Soon thereafter, he made the project 100% community-owned and immutable, according to SOLSCAN. This move safeguarded the token’s future and maintained its integrity within the Solana ecosystem.

These actions led to heightened community, investor, and trader interest and coincided with a resurgence of interest in the Solana blockchain in December 2023. As a result, the coin moved from trading at $0.0076 on the first day of 2024 to a high of $0.3882 on 1st April 2024 representing more than 5,000% price growth.

Application/Utilities of POPCAT

Beyond being a meme coin, POPCAT has no other application or utility.

Is POPCAT A Good Investment?

The intervention by community members to make a financial investment to make the project immutable and 100% community-owned makes POPCAT a worthwhile investment with lots of potential. The decision not only preserved the project but also revitalized the community's enthusiasm. This fact is evidenced by the substantial growth in social media engagement and participation in project activities following these developments. Furthermore, the move towards complete community ownership aligns with the decentralized ethos of the cryptocurrency world, potentially attracting more participants who value democratic, user-led projects.

This community-driven approach may well set POPCAT apart in a crowded market of meme coins, providing it with a unique edge that could lead to sustained interest and growth.
