What’s old is new again!

What happens when you combine a mostly hibernating memecoin with the world’s most powerful (and controversial) meme platform, and throw in a new generation of daytraders that have become convinced that they can drive the price of anything up?

  • How TikTok became one of the most popular, influential and controversial apps in the world 

  • Why the r/WallStreetBets, Davey Day Trader Global Global and Robinhood Rally day trader movement perfectly set up this pump 

  • How #TikTokDogecoinChallenge began to trend 

  • What has happened to dogecoin since the trend started

  • Why this all makes a weird sort of cynical sense
