Return of the memes. PEPE, a new memecoin on Ethereum, has seen a blistering rally to over >$120M market cap in less than a week. Liquidity for these new memecoins is relatively low, and early investors could instantly drain liquidity. Stay safe out there, and don’t get rugged. 🙅
TradFi giant tests the waters with new Euro stablecoin. Societe Generale, Europe’s 7th largest bank, is launching its own Euro-pegged stablecoin, EURCV. Notably, there are several centralized functions built in that can take your money at will. 🤔
Uniswap signals support for zkEVMs. Uniswap V3 will deploy on the new zkEVM following a unanimous governance vote. Competitor ZkSync Era noted it also expects Uniswap to launch on its rollup in the coming days.
