Last week, American media figure Caitlyn Jenner’s “JENNER” debuted among the most prominent celebrity memecoins on May 28. Many at first believed the token belonged to a deep fake X account hack.

Over the first 24 hours, JENNER reached a $30 million market valuation as people argued online about whether the celebrity actually launched and supported the coin. Though Jenner herself has personally confirmed that it is legal, it has now dropped 79% from its all-time high of $0.0061.

Launched by Nigerian singer David Adedeji Adeleke Oon, dubbed Timeless Davido (DAVIDO), another cryptocurrency has dropped over 66% to $0.0011 from a top-out of $0.0033 on May 30.

Among other celebs, tokens connected to American rapper Moneybagg Yo (SPEAK), boxing great Floyd Mayweather, and Trippie Red (BANDO) have dropped by over 90%.

The creator of distributed exchange Uniswap, Hayden Adams, said he had “no issues” with the current celebrity memecoin mania but advised they should maximize their earnings.

“Iggy could have answered favorably and given money from profits to support a social cause or something.”
