Play Dumb Games, Win Stupid Prizes

Solana just launched a half million memecoins in a month. What can possibly go wrong?

According to data from The Block, Solana (SOL) saw ~500k token launches in the month of May, whomping other blockchains such as BNB Chain, Base, and Ethereum.

Giving credit where it’s due, this is what happens when you have high-throughput and ultra-low transaction costs. The cost of token experimentation and new idea creation on Solana is next to nothing. Add in user-friendly platforms like, and now anyone can launch a new token with just a few clicks.
