On new year's eve, PewDiePie aka. the "Meme Lord" announced the results of his poll where he asked us, the 9 year olds, to vote for the best memes of 2018.
BrofistCoin decided to turn the epic style memes that made the cut into ownable and tradable blockchain based ERC721 tokens and airdrop them to everyone for free!
The airdrop is now over
Thanks everyone who participated. All in all I think we can call it a success because despite the bear market and the hype around BrofistCoin fading, we still managed to airdrop 75 Meme Trading Cards!
Looking at the statistics here it looks like the Fortnite card with a total supply of just 3 cards is the rarest card available. In contrast, Meme Review and They Did Surgery On A Grape share the position of the most common card with a total supply of 10 cards each.
We can already find people selling these trading cards in the OpenSea marketplace which is actually kind of surprising to me. I'm not sure how they ended up there so quickly.
Given that there are only 75 Meme Awards 2018 trading cards out there in the crypto world, I'm sure they will be worth something some day. Again, thank you so much for participating.
I have decided to leave the rest of the page untouched. This way you will still be able to see your own card here (if you have one and are authenticated through MetaMask) but obviously you cannot claim any more trading cards. The contract was programmed to only mint new cards for 30 days.
Tell me more about these tokens
To save you from all the technical jargon, all you need to know is these
ERC721 tokens are like promotional
rare items that you can only ever claim during the first 30 days of the airdrop event.
A new token is born every time someone claims it. There is no initial supply and there is no way to know how many tokens will be created. You can view the current statistics on this page.
The only thing that is certain is that when the airdrop event ends the total supply of every token in existence will become final. Nobody will be able to create any more tokens after that. This makes these meme tokens effectively scarce.
Token ownership is tracked on the Ethereum blockchain so you can buy, sell and trade these meme tokens any time you want. Theoretically the value of these tokens can become higher and higher over time, but obviously we cannot guarantee this.
Please note that these tokens are free to claim during the airdrop event provided that you have enough ETH in your Ethereum wallet to cover the transaction fee required by the Ethereum network to transfer the tokens from our smart contract to your wallet.
Unlike most other crypto projects, BrofistCoin is not funded and we have no investors (and we can't have any investors because, well, we're using PewDiePie's name and trademark after all). This means we do everything here in our spare time. Therefore we simply cannot afford to pay for the transaction fees ourselves because cumulatively it would be too much. However based on our tests the transaction fee should cost you individually no more than a few cents!
Although not related to our main project, the Meme Trading Cards game, these tokens will be used in a small minigame we are working on. It's almost complete, but we decided to postpone development until enough people have claimed their free tokens first to see whether people are even interested in what we're doing or not.
In the minigame, your meme token will act as your avatar that you can put to work to earn BrofistCoin for you. Other players can copystrike your avatar while it's working and claim all the revenue. Oof! There are of course other aspects to the game that make it really competitive and fun, but we'll release more information on this after the token airdrop event. Stay tuned and share this page with all your friends and family!
What are the requirements?
You can claim a free ERC721 meme token provided that you are subscribed to PewDiePie, allow MetaMask or other Web3 enabled browser to connect to our dapp and have enough ETH in your balance to cover the network transaction fee (Gas) it takes to confirm the transaction.
One address can claim only once from the smart contract. If you attempt to claim more than one token,
the transaction will fail and your Gas will be wasted! It doesn't matter if you claim here on this page or call the function
externally, the transaction will always fail if you have already claimed. Note that modern Web3 interfaces like MetaMask will warn you
beforehand if a transaction is bound to fail.
Also note that the token you receive will be randomly chosen from the memes that PewDiePie announced in the Meme Awards video. In other words you have 1 in 10 (there are 10 memes) chance to get any specific token. You better like the card you get!
Statistics & Info
If you're having trouble claiming the token then you can also call the function
with no arguments. If the
msg.sender has not claimed yet, the token will get
msg.sender. The smart contract behind all this can be found
