A new token was born after the inventor of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, tweeted about DIE. Previously, Buterin joked about launching a project called “THE Protocol,” The community took it about themselves to mint it and boosted its value.
Across social media, people are starting to speculate on DIE, the article “The” written in german, flipping THE. Despite the persistent bear market, which has led Bitcoin and Ethereum to crash 80% from their all-time high, the meme coin movement seems alive and well, directly or indirectly supported by Vitalik Buterin.

Vitalik Buterin Fuels Meme Coins Prices As Crypto Market Stalls
The crypto bear market is pushing traders and market participants to the edges of boredom, allowing these new tokens to capture attention. When Bitcoin and Ethereum are rangebound, traders are attracted to the volatility in DIE and THE.
In addition, Vitalik Buterin has a massive platform in the space. The recent upward trends in these meme coins show that the support, or indirect endorsement, from the inventor of Ethereum, can boost the price of any token, even those with a small market capitalization.
THE and DIE are trending because of crypto influencers’ support and personalities other than Vitalik Buterin. These accounts have thousands and thousands of followers willing to jump into any project sponsored by these personalities.
$DIE quickest 200x this year
